Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), a community of data and information technology professionals, and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), the leader in location standards, are convening an agile development sprint to advance APIs for analytics on coverages, arrays, and gridded data. This will be a key event in the development of OGC APIs for geospatial resources and building blocks for community APIs.

The Coverage Processing and Analysis API Sprint will be co-located with the 2020 ESIP Winter Meeting, which draws Earth Science data and information professionals from across the public, private, and academic sectors. 

The objectives of this sprint are to clarify requirements and methods for analytics on geospatial data, including rasters, non-uniformly distributed points, and other geospatial coverage data structures. By developing prototype functionality through running code, the sprint will assess and advance draft versions of OGC API - CoverageOGC API - Process and OGC API - Common standards.
