Please note: This Request is closed. The documents listed below have been adopted by the OGC Technical and Planning Committee. These specifications are under control of the specification Standards Working Group and will be released after the edits and revisions. For the most current version please check our Standards Page.
The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC) membership approved a 30 day public comment period for a revision to the OpenGIS® Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard. The revision includes two extensions to WCS: the WCS 1.1 Transaction Extension and the Web Coverage Processing Service Processing (WCPS) Extension.

The WCS Interface Standard (http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcs) specifies an application programming interface (API) for requesting coverage data, such as imagery, from one or more distributed sources.

The WCS 1.1 Transaction Extension defines how WCS clients can request that a WCS server import one or more new coverages into that server, update existing coverages, and/or delete existing coverages.

The WCPS Extension adds a raster expression language to WCS which allows analysis and processing of multi-dimensional grid coverage data over the World Wide Web. Resulting coverages can be transmitted directly or made available for download by URLs communicated to the client.
