QGIS and OGC APIs - how do they work together?
2021-09-29, 15:00–15:30, Ushuaia

QGIS demo as a generic Desktop capability.
Alongside the various OGC API server implementations, clients are in the process of being set up to interact with the OGC API services. In this talk we present some new capabilities of QGIS to interact with OGC API’s.


Additionally to the various OGC API server implementations, more and more clients are being set up to interact with the OGC API services. This talk will focus on on QGIS and some new capabilities of QGIS to interact with OGC API’s.
The WFS provider in QGIS has been extended to support OGC API Features. The functionality builds on top of the OGC API Features provider in GDAL, a swiss army knife for spatial data.

Metasearch is a dataset search plugin for QGIS. It was originally created by NextGIS and later adopted by the geopython community. We’ve recently worked on some improvements in Metasearch. You can now query an OGC API Records endpoint from within QGIS and add the data service from a search result to the map. The metadata needs to have a minimal set of binding details, which can be provided via a templated access url. The work on the Metasearch client facilitated the OGC API Records implementation in pygeoapi and GeoNetwork and contributed feedback to the OGC community about the emerging standard.

In case there is news to share on support for OGC API Maps, Tiles and Styles within QGIS, you’ll hear of it during the presentation.
