OGC Catalogue Services Specification – Request for Comment

OGC has put out a Request for Comment for a new candidate OGC standard. It is the Catalogue Services Specification 2.0.1 – ISO Metadata Application Profile. From the press release: ” Catalogue services are the key technology for locating, managing and maintaining distributed geo-resources (i.e. geospatial data, applications and services). With OGC catalogue services, client applications are capable of searching for geo-resources in a standardised way (i.e. through standardised interfaces and operations) and, ideally, they are based on a well-known information model, which includes spatial references and further descriptive (thematic) information that enables client applications to search for geo-resources in very efficient ways”
