i. Abstract

This standard describes the Atom encoding of the OWC Context conceptual model. The goal of this standard is to provide a definition of how to encode a context document, which can be extended to allow a context referencing a fully configured service set to be defined and consistently interpreted by clients.

The OGC Web Services Context Document standard (OWS Context) was created to allow a set of configured information resources to be passed between applications primarily as a collection of services (but also potentially in-line content). The objective is to support use cases such as the distribution of search results, the exchange of a set of resources in a common operating picture (COP) or delivery of a set of configured processing services to allow the processing to be reproduced on different nodes.

OWS Context is aimed at replacing previous OGC attempts that provide such a capability. Web Map Context (WMC) has been reasonably successful but is limited to WMS. Other work on the Location Organiser Folder (LOF) was also taken into consideration. The concept of OWS Context and the first prototype document was produced as part of OWS-7 [OGC10-035r1], Information Sharing Engineering Report.

A principle goal of the OWS Context SWG was to develop an encoding that would appeal to the mass market yet also provide facilities for more advanced uses. OWS-7 originally considered the application of existing encoding standards for OWS Context. The group that has produced this standard has concluded that multiple encoding formats can be defined and that each encoding format will be described in a separate OGC Extension to the Core model.

This document concentrates on describing the encoding of the OWS Context Model that is described in abstract terms in a separate document. The goal of OWS Context has been to allow many types of OGC data delivery services to be referenced and therefore exploited (for example, not just OGC Web Map Service but also OGC Web Feature Service, OGC Web Coverage Service and OGC Web Processing Service) but it does not explicitly define the encoding of these services in the core, only the general approach to be used for different types of service interface.

Requirements and conformance test URIs defined in this document are relative to the base URL http://www.opengis.net/spec/owc-atom/1.0.

Conformance with this standard shall be checked using all the relevant tests specified in Annex A (normative) of this document. The framework, concepts, and methodology for testing, and the criteria to be achieved to claim conformance are specified in the OGC Compliance Testing Policies and Procedures and the OGC Compliance Testing web site.

In order to conform to this OGC®interface standard, an encoding standard shall choose to implement any one of the conformance levels specified in Annex A (normative).

This Standard defines the core conformance level as compliance with the Atom encoding of the core specification; this is mandatory. Compliance with any of the service or encoding specific extensions is optional and there is no interrelationship in term of these extensions.

Requirements for 2 standardization target types are considered:

1. An OWS Context Document Encoded in Atom.

2. The interpretation of an OWS Context Document by a client (Requirements and abstract tests for this are not included in this release of the document.)

Conformance with this standard shall be checked using all the relevant tests specified in Annex A (normative) of this document. The framework, concepts, and methodology for testing, and the criteria to be achieved to claim conformance are specified in the OGC Compliance Testing Policies and Procedures and the OGC Compliance Testing web site[1].

In order to conform to this OGC®interface standard, a software implementation shall choose to implement:

a) Conformance to the ‘Core Atom’ encoding.

b) Conformance with zero or more of the offering-specific extensions.

All requirements-classes and conformance-classes described in this document are owned by the standard identified as OWS Context (OGC:12-084) .

UML notation

Unified Modeling Language (UML) static structure diagrams appearing in this specification are used as described in sub-clause 5.2 of OGC Web Service Common [OGC 06-121r9]. Further, the following conventions hold:

· UML elements having a package name of “OWS Common” are those defined in the UML model of OWS Common [OGC 06-121r9].

· UML elements having a package name of GML are those defined in the UML model of GML [OGC 07-036].

· UML elements not qualified with a package name are those defined in this Standard.

· UML data type Any is used here as an equivalence to XML’s xsd:any.

Data dictionary tables

The UML model data dictionary is specified herein in a series of tables. The contents of the columns in these tables are described in sub-clause 5.5 of [OGC 06-121r9]. The contents of these data dictionary tables are normative, including any table footnotes. For the reader’s convenience, table rows describing inherited components are shaded.

5.4 Core and Extension Breakdown

The OWS Context Document standard follows the modular specification design pattern identified in OWS Context Conceptual Model [OGC 12-080]. It was decided that the requirements would be split both on the basis of the core and then on the specific service types (WMS, WFS etc) and also on the basis of a specific encoding of the document.

OWS Context Requirement Class and Document Breakdown
Figure : OWS Context Requirement Class and Document Breakdown

The core context document is largely agnostic of any particular service type, covering the basic structure and the extension model. A requirement class is then defined for each service offering. This document covers all of the requirement classes for the Atom encoding (the centre grey box in Figure 1).

This standard recommends that any implementation of an application profile that defines extensions to the conceptual model should define both an XML (Atom) and a JSON Encoding of the extension.


Atom Encoding Specification

Overview

This clause specifies the links from the encoding to the underlying OWS Context data model. It defines a mapping for all classes and attributes of the OWS Conceptual model. This includes mandatory requirements for the encoding of a context document and the necessary semantics of how that encoding should be interpreted. The conceptual model on which this encoding is based is divided into various packages. These are shown in Figure 2 below. Note that these packages map directly to requirement classes.

OWS Context Standard Packages
Figure : OWS Context Standard Packages

The Atom Syndication Format is an XML language used for web feeds and was issued as a Proposed Standard in IETF [RFC-4287] in December 2005.

resource

Path: atom:entry

The resources of a Context document are mapped by atom:entry elements described below in section 6.2.2.

Example:


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
              xml:lang=“en”> 
          …
          <entry>
              …
          </entry>
          …
   </feed>

Note: This specification identifies the order of Atom entries in relation to interpretation of the context document contents. Entries are ordered from highest importance to lowest in the file. In particular in relation to visualization geographically the first entry in the Atom document is the topmost layer in the display.

contextMetadata

Path: atom:feed/atom:link[@rel=“via”]

This element is optional and references an external resource from which the Context document is derived (e.g. metadata document from which the metadata of the resource is derived). The Context document MAY have more than one atom:link but it SHALL NOT contain more than one atom:link element with a rel attribute value of “via” that has the same combination of type, href and lang attribute values

Example:


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
              xml:lang=“en”> 
          …
          <link rel=“via” type=“application/xml” href=“http://www.acme.com/collections/algal.xml” title=“Algal XML metadata”/>
          …
   </feed>

keyword

Path: atom:feed/atom:category/@term

This element is optional and expresses a category related to this Context document. It MAY have a related code-list that is identified by the scheme attribute. The category element has one required attribute, atom:term (identifies the category), and two optional attributes, atom:scheme (identifies the categorization scheme via a URI) and atom:label (provides a human-readable label for display). This specification assigns no significance to the order of atom:category elements within the atom:feed.

Example:


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom” > 
      <title>Context Example :: Algal Pigment</title>
      <category scheme=“http://www.acme.com/category”
              term=“oceansec”
              label=“Ocean Integrated Maritime Security”/>
     …

id

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/atom:id

This element defines a mandatory reference to the identification of the Context resource. Its content SHALL be an IRI, as defined by RFC-3987. By defining it as an “IRI” the use of relative references is excluded and it SHALL NOT be assumed to convey dereferencable information. The content of an atom:id element SHALL be created in a way that assures uniqueness and follow the recommendations of RFC-4287 section 4.2.6. The id should be in canonical form and avoiding the use of URI like http://server.com/path and using http://server.com/path/ instead.

Example:


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
              xml:lang=“en”> 
          …
          <entry>
              <id>http://www.acme.eu/geoserver/wms/#world_countries</id>

   </feed>

abstract

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/atom:content

This element is mandatory and it contains the description of the Context resource purpose or content. It uses the Atom text constructor and the type attribute MAY be “text”, “html” or “xhmtl” as expressed in RFC-4287 section 4.2.12. If the original resource does not contain any abstract, the generator SHALL define a generic description of the content in a format understandable by mass-market generic Atom readers. Type equal to “html” is recommended.

Example:


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
              xml:lang=“en”>

keyword

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/atom:category/@term

This element is optional and expresses a category related to the entry. It MAY have a related code-list that is identified by the scheme attribute. The category element has one required attribute, term (identifies the category), and two optional attributes, scheme (identifies the categorization scheme via a URI) and label (provides a human-readable label for display). This specification assigns no significance to the order of atom:category elements within the atom:entry.

Example:


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”> 
          …
          <entry>
              …

         …
   </feed>

minScaleDenominator

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:minScaleDenominator

This element defines the minimum scale for the display of the resource. The scale denominator is defined with respect to a “standardized rendering pixel size” of 0.28 mm × 0.28 mm (millimeters). The definition is the same used in WMS 1.3.0 [OGC 06-042] and in Symbology Encoding Implementation Specification 1.1.0 [05-077r4]. Frequently, the true pixel size is unknown and 0.28 mm is a common actual size for current displays.

Example:


<feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
             xmlns:dc=“http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/”
             xmlns:gml=“http://www.opengis.net/gml”

         …
   </feed>

maxScaleDenominator

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:maxScaleDenominator

This element defines the maximum scale for the display of the resource. The scale denominator is defined with respect to a “standardized rendering pixel size” of 0.28 mm × 0.28 mm (millimeters). The definition is the same used in WMS 1.3.0 [OGC 06-042] and in Symbology Encoding Implementation Specification 1.1.0 [05-077r4]. Frequently, the true pixel size is unknown and 0.28 mm is a common actual size for current displays.

Example:


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
             xmlns:owc=“http://www.opengis.net/owc/1.0”
             xmlns:dc=“http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/”
             xmlns:gml=“http://www.opengis.net/gml”
             xml:lang=“en”> 
          …
          <entry>
              …
              <owc:maxScaleSenominator>100</owc:maxScaleSenominator>
             …
          </entry>
         …
   </feed>

folder

Path: feed/atom:entry/atom:category[@scheme=’http://www.opengis.net/spec/owc/folder]/@term

The term attribute represents a not empty character string that defines the folder name in which the resource is placed. If this atom:categoryelement has a title attribute it MAY be used to represent a human-readable caption.

Example:


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
             xmlns:dc=“http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/”
             xmlns:gml=“http://www.opengis.net/gml”
              xml:lang=“en”> 
          …
          <entry>
              …
              <category scheme=“http://www.opengis.net/spec/owc/folder” term=“FIELDINFO” label=“Field Information”/>

code

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:operation/@code

This identifies the type of operation. The valid operation types are defined within each specific extension within the OWS Context conceptual model [OGC 12-080].

Example:


<feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
             xmlns:owc=“http://www.opengis.net/owc/1.0”
             xml:lang=“en”> 
          …
          <entry>
              …
              <owc:offering
                  code=“http://www.opengis.net/spec/owc-atom/1.0/req/wms”>
                 <owc:operation code=“GetCapabilities” href=“http://www.someserver.com/wrs.cgi?REQUEST=GetCapabilities&amp;SERVICE=WMS&amp;VERSION=1.1.1”/>
              </owc:offering>
 
          <entry>

method

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:operation/@method

This identifies the method (verb) of the operation. Default value is GET.

Example


<feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
             xmlns:owc=“http://www.opengis.net/owc/1.0”
             xml:lang=“en”> 
          …
          <entry>
              …
              <owc:offering
                    code=“http://www.opengis.net/spec/owc-atom/1.0/req/wms”>
                 <owc:operation method=“GET” code=“GetCapabilities” href=“http://www.someserver.com/wrs.cgi?REQUEST=GetCapabilities&amp;SERVICE=WMS&amp;VERSION=1.1.1”/>
              </owc:offering>
          <entry>

type

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:operation/@type

It defines the MIME-type of the content class.

requestURL

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:offering/owc:operation/@href

For HTTP GET the serviceURL item is used to capture the entire request. For POST (and SOAP) requests, the serviceURL is used to capture the address, and in addition a payload is required. See payload below for an example of the POST request.

Example (WMS Service, HTTP GET request for GetCapabilities with no results stored):


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
             xmlns:owc=“http://www.opengis.net/owc/1.0”
             xml:lang=“en”>
          …
          <entry>
              …
              <owc:offering
                    code=“http://www.opengis.net/spec/owc-atom/1.0/req/wms”>
                 <owc:operation method=“GET” code=“GetCapabilities” href=“http://www.someserver.com/wrs.cgi?REQUEST=GetCapabilities&amp;SERVICE=WMS&amp;VERSION=1.1.1”/>
              </owc:offering>
          <entry>

payload

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:offering/owc:operation/owc:payload

For POST and SOAP Requests, a payload is required.

Note: not necessarily XML as the content is defined by MIME-type. If the content is text/xml or application/xml+* it SHALL be present as a XML fragment (without the <?xml… header) and the encoding SHALL be the same as the feed.

Example (CSW Service, HTTP POST request for GetRecords with no results stored):

type

Path: //owc:content/@type

It defines the MIME-type of the content class.

URL

Path: //owc:content/@href

It provides the path to the content. It can be a full URL or a relative reference. For example you can use an http:, ftp:, file: etc, or simply a file name if the OWS context document and the content share the same location.

content

This element contains the inline content or a local file reference (encoded in any form in the document and definable via MIME Type).

Example:


<owc:content type=“application/gml+xml”>
   <my_srf:RoadCollection xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/gml/3.2 http://schemas.opengis.net/gml/3.2.1/gml.xsd http://www.opengis.net/owc/1.0/examples/example1 SpringRoadField?.xsd"

</owc:content>

extension

This class may contain any other element (outside of the atom or owc namespace).

DataType OWC:StyleSet

Any other element

Any (outside of the atom or owc namespace)

Zero or more (optional)

 

The intention of the StyleSet is that the client could visualise the resource using say the GetMap call (which would have defined styling) but could also offer the selection of alternative styles for the layer to the user. These would be derived from the style set offering.

name

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:offering/owc:styleSet/owc:name

The name of the style is used to present to the service in order to invoke a standard style. It is not required on referenced styles.

Example:


<owc:styleSet default=“true”>
    <owc:name>default</owc:name>
    <owc:title>The SST default style</owc:title>
 </owc:styleSet>

title

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:offering/owc:styleSet/owc:title

This element is intended to provide a human readable name for an element (used in any label or legend for the style).

Example:


<owc:styleSet>
    <owc:name>grey</owc:name>
    <owc:title>Grey map of temperatures</owc:title>
 </owc:styleSet>

abstract

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:offering/owc:styleSet/owc:abstract

The abstract provides a textual description of the style.

Example:


<owc:styleSet>
     <owc:name>night</owc:name>
    <owc:title>Night Colours</owc:title>
    <owc:abstract>Colours used for display in dimmed conditions</owc:abstract>
 </owc:styleSet>

default

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:offering/owc:styleSet/@default

Specifies the style to be applied when the service is invoked (other styles are there as alternatives).

Note: The default does not need to be defined and is not required when a service request in an offering already has a way of specifying the default. For example where a WMS Call can include the style request, this element is not required. However when specifying the style for a WFS or a GML File (where there is no place to specify styling) the default can be used.

Example:

 

<owc:styleSet default=“true”>
    <owc:name>default</owc:name>
    <owc:title>The SST default style</owc:title>
 </owc:styleSet>

legendURL

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:offering/owc:styleSet/owc:legendURL

The legend URL specifies a link to a legend image.

Example:


<owc:styleSet>
     <owc:name>day/owc:name>
    <owc:title>Day Colours</owc:title>
    <owc:abstract>Colours used for display in daylight conditions</owc:abstract>
    <owc:legendURL href=“http://www.acme.int/dayColours.jpg”/>
 </owc:styleSet>

Content

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/owc:offering/owc:styleSet/owc:content

The content element allows an external or an inline style definition to be identified. It is a owc:Content class and as such if it has a value on the attribute href it SHALL NOT have inline content. This could potentially be an OGC Styled Layer Descriptor document but also potentially a Cascading Style Sheet. The valid types of document for a given service/inline content are specified in the relevant offering extension.

Example:


<owc:styleSet>
     <owc:name>Simple Point/owc:name>
    <owc:title>SLD Cook Book: Simple Point With Stroke</owc:title>
     <owc:content href=“http://docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/_downloads/point_simplepoint.sld” type=“application/sld+xml”/>
 </owc:styleSet>
or an inline content as
<owc:styleSet>
     <owc:name>Simple Point/owc:name>
    <owc:title>SLD Cook Book: Simple Point With Stroke</owc:title>
     <owc:content type=“application/sld+xml”>

Zero or more (optional)

Note: The properties for Creator application map to the top level, i.e. the DataType ‘Creator’ is not realized in the Atom Encoding and the property atom:generator maps to the top level (i.e. into the resource class).

Example:


   <feed xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
             xmlns:dc=“http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/”
              xml:lang=“en”>

        ACME OWS Context Server
      </generator>
         …
   </feed>

title

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/atom:generator/

The content of this element SHALL be a human-readable text (character string) where entities such as “&amp;” and “&lt;” represent their corresponding characters (“&” and “<” respectively), not markup.

uri

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/atom:generator/@uri

The optional uri attribute is a URI that when dereferenced SHALL produce a representation that is relevant to the client (web address).

version

Path: atom:feed/atom:entry/atom:generator/@version

The optional version attribute is a character string that conveys the version of the generating application.

DataType OWC:Creator/OWC:CreatorDisplay

The OWC:CreatorDisplay class provides place to encode information related to the display area used in the creator application when the OWS Context document was produced. This class is optional and intended for creator applications that use a graphical user interface with a geographical display within a fixed pixel size and not scalable to different computational devices. The set of properties of this class are only informative and creator applications SHALL NOT expect clients to use them to reproduce the original graphical display. Client applications SHALL NOT use the information of this class to define the size of their own graphical interface. The values present on this class are to be considered as a creator application metadata and client applications SHALL NOT assign any meaning to them. The presence of this class in an Context document SHALL NOT be considered an indication of any type of limitation or constraint of the Context resources (atom:entry elements). The mapping between the OWC:CreatorDisplay Class and Atom encoding is shown in the table below.

Table 9 - Definitions of owc:CreatorDisplay elements
