USA, 15 May 2007: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is seeking for public comment on two draft OpenGIS Implementation Specifications:
The OpenGIS Geospatial eXtensible Access Control Markup Language: (GeoXACML) Draft Implementation Specification defines a geo-specific extension to the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) OASIS standard. “Access control systems” enable management of access to information only until it is obtained by the user and stored locally, as opposed to “rights management systems” that remain in force regardless of where the content of the original resource is located or reproduced.
The OpenGIS Image Geopositioning Service (IGS) Draft Implementation Specification defines an Image Geopositioning Service (IGS) interface to services that perform triangulation. Accompanying this draft specification is a separate OpenGIS Image Geopositioning Metadata Geography Markup Language (GML) Draft Application Schema, which is structured to provide consistency between the IGS and other OGC Web Services (OWS) specifications.
OGC is waiting for suggested additions, changes, and comments on these draft specifications.
