First Public Working Draft: Spatial Data on the Web Best Practices

   19 January 2016
   <https://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/5274>

   The W3C and OGC Spatial Data on the Web Working Group has
   published the "First Public Working Draft of its Best Practices"
   document for Spatial Data on the Web. This is a concerted attempt
   to bring together techniques used by the geospatial industry and
   Web technologists, especially those making use of Linked Data
   techniques. Typical use cases include environmental and
   cartographic data, transport and administrative data. Although
   clearly a lot remains to be done, the editors seek to illustrate
   the full scope of the best practices. The editors are particularly
   keen for reviewers to cite examples that may be used to further
   illustrate the best practices.

   The First Public Working Draft of the Spatial Data on the Web
   Working Group Best Practices document is published simultaneously
   by the OGC and the W3C. Read more in the OGC press release.
