OGC Standards

Below is a list of OGC Implementation Standards.

Implementation Standards are different from the Abstract Specification. They are written for a more technical audience and detail the interface structure between software components. An interface specification is considered to be at the implementation level of detail if, when implemented by two different software engineers in ignorance of each other, the resulting components plug and play with each other at that interface.

Any Schemas (xsd, xslt, etc) that support an approved Implementation Standard can be found in the official OGC Schema Repository.
