The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks comment on the candidate GML in JPEG 2000 Encoding Standard version 2. This geospatial data encoding standard defines how the Geography Markup Language (GML) is to be used within JPEG 2000 images for adding geographic content to imagery. Once approved, the GML in JPEG2000 version 2 standard will join a suite of international open standards that provide a platform for seamless service-based publishing, discovery, assessment, ordering, access and processing of geospatial information.

Version 1.0.0 of this standard was published in January of 2006. The new candidate version 2 of the standard exploits the capabilities of the OGC GML Coverage Application Schema (GMLCOV) and the OGC Web Coverage Service (WCS) 2.0 Interface Standard that have been made available by the OGC since 2006. Version 2 eliminates shortcomings of Version 1 and also addresses shortcomings of competing methods of using JPEG2000 in geospatial applications.

All OGC standards are free and publicly available on the OGC Standards Page. The candidate GML in JPEG 2000 Encoding Standard version 2 can be downloaded from
http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/118.  The GML in JPEG 2000 Standards Working Group (GMLJP2 SWG) will consider comments on the candidate GMLJP2 Standard that have been posted through 19 March 2013.

The OGC is an international consortium of more than 470 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
