pycsw is an OGC CSW server implementation written in Python and is an official OSGeo Project. pycsw implements clause 10 HTTP protocol binding - Catalogue Services for the Web, CSW of the OpenGIS Catalogue Service Implementation Specification, version 3.0.0 and 2.0.2. pycsw allows for the publishing and discovery of geospatial metadata, providing a standards-based metadata and catalogue component of spatial data infrastructures. The project is certified OGC Compliant, and is an OGC Reference Implementation.
The project currently powers numerous high profile catalogues such as US data.gov, geoplatform.gov, IOOS, NGDS, NOAA, US Department of State, US Department of Interior, geodata.gov.gr, Met Norway and WMO WOUDC. This session starts with a status report of the project, followed by an open question answer session to give a chance to users to interact with members of the pycsw project team. This session will cover how the project PSC operates, what is the current project roadmap, and recent enhancements focused on ESA's Earth Observation Exploitation Platform Common Architecture (EOEPCA) and OGC API - Records.
pygeoapi is an OGC API Reference Implementation for Features. Implemented in Python, pygeoapi supports many other OGC APIs via a core agnostic API, different web frameworks (Flask, Starlette, Django) and a fully integrated OpenAPI capability. Lightweight, easy to deploy and cloud-ready, pygeoapi's architecture facilitates publishing datasets and processes from multiple sources.
This presentation will provide an update on the current status and latest developments, including the implementation of numerous new OGC APIs including gridded/coverage data (OGC API - Coverages), search (OGC API - Records), vector/map tiles (OGC API - Tiles), and Environmental Data Retrieval (EDR API).
OSGeoLive is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Lubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. It is composed entirely of free software, allowing it to be freely distributed, duplicated and passed around. It provides pre-configured applications for a range of geospatial use cases, including storage, publishing, viewing, analysis and manipulation of data. It also contains sample datasets and documentation. OSGeoLive is an OSGeo project used in several workshops at FOSS4Gs around
All OSGeo projects, initiatives and chapters will present their status and share the news from this past year since the last meeting.
We have been active in advance and asked our community for short videos about the status of their project. We are happy to be able to publish the OSGeo Annual General Meeting video on the OSGeo YouTube channel [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daXH-fcvrOg]. It was amazing to get all the videos from local chapters, projects, committees and initiatives. We hope we did not miss any video. A big thanks to all the community members who provided a video and to Vicky Vergara who mixed them all together.
Now you are invited to watch the AGM 2021 video in advance of our meeting on Friday. If there are questions or topics for discussion we can follow up on the Virtual AGM on Friday.
