The draft OGC API - Discrete Global Grid Systems standard specifies an API for accessing data organised according to a Discrete Global Grid System (DGGS). A DGGS is a spatial reference system that uses a hierarchical tessellation of cells to partition and address the globe. DGGS are characterized by the properties of their cell structure, geo-encoding, quantization strategy and associated mathematical functions.
