Our group participated between 20-21 June 2019 to the Hackathon organized by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), aimed for developing the new OGC Application Programming Interface (API) specifications.

The hackathon test drafted OpenAPI-based standards for coverages, map tiles, processes using a common template based on the OGC API for features, aka WFS3.

An OGC Hackathon is a collaborative and inclusive event driven by innovative and rapid programming with minimum process and organization constraints to support the development of new applications and open standards.

Our group was represented by Marian Neagul, Gabriel Iuhasz and Teodora Selea.

We contributed to the Hackathon with our WPS Server (EWPS), extended its functionality with the Web Processing Service 2.0 REST/JSON Binding Extension.

The new functionality was successfully tested with client implementations developed by Solenix and Helyx.

As part of the Hackathon we participated in discussions regarding features expected from the future “OGC API - Processing” standard, particularly extensions implementing a trigger/callback mechanism, adhering to the Microservice Architecture.

The Hackathon provided an excellent occasion for interacting with the Geospatial community, particularly with developers of other WPS implementations (eg. ZOO-Project)
