The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks public comment on the GML in JPEG 2000 (GMLJP2) v2.1 Candidate Encoding Standard.

The GMLJP2 Candidate Encoding Standard defines how the Geography Markup Language (GML) is to be used within JPEG 2000 images and other gridded coverage data for adding geospatial content to imagery, such as the geographic coordinates of the image, annotations, or references to features.

This revised version 2.1 adds support for referenceable grid coverages via a recently published Coverage Implementation Schema (CIS) extension GMLCOVRGRID, which provides additional capabilities for this standard such as support for a wide range of sensor models described with SensorML 2.0 or with GML-based application profiles.

Sensor models envisioned for use with this standard include mathematical descriptions of imaging systems located on satellite and airborne platforms. A full example closely based on the Community Sensor Model for frame cameras is available here.

The standard will appeal to: developers intending to implement geospatially enabled JPEG 2000 encoders and readers; developers of both WFS and WCS who wish to provide support for JPEG 2000 formats; and developers who wish to use GML to give imagery a geospatial context.
