OGC API - Maps

OGC API standards define modular API building blocks to spatially enable Web APIs in a consistent way. OpenAPI is used to define the reusable API building blocks with responses in JSON and HTML.

The OGC API family of standards is organized by resource type. The draft OGC API - Maps standard describes an API that presents data as maps by applying a style. The draft standard allows a client application to request maps as images, or change parameters such as size and coordinate reference systems at the time of request, making them implementer-friendly and easily understandable by developers without geospatial experience.

Overview of OGC API - Maps - Part 1: Core

OGC API - Maps is a draft API standard that provides maps representing geospatial data.

GET /collections
A list of collections of all maps available from this API.

GET /collections/{collectionId}
Description of a collection {collectionId} available from this API. It defines what is possible to do with it to generate a map.

GET /collections/{collectionId}/map
Retrieves the maps description for this collection including the links to get a map, and the infoTemplate.

GET /map
Retrieves the maps description for this collection including the links to get a map, and the infoTemplate.

GET /collections/{collectionId}/map/{styleId}
Retrieves a map in the requested crs, on the requested bbox designed to be shown in a rendering device of a width and a height. Some formats require to apply a style on the server side (e.g. png, jpeg, gif) and some others might include a reference to a style to be applied in the client side.

GET /collections/{collectionId}/map/{styleId}/info
Retrieves a information about a feature presented on the map in the requested crs, on the requested bbox designed to be shown in a rendering device of a width and a height. Some formats require to apply a style on the server side (e.g. png, jpeg, gif) and some others might include a reference to a style to be applied in the client side.

GET /map/{styleId}
Retrieves a map in the requested crs, on the requested bbox designed to be shown in a device of a width and a height. Some formats require to apply a style on the server side (e.g. png, jpeg, gif) and some others might include a reference to a style to be applied in the client side.

GET /map/{styleId}/info
Retrieves a information about a feature presented on the map for collections in the requested crs, on the requested bbox desigend to be shown in a rendering device of a width and a height. Some formats require to apply a style on the server side (e.g. png, jpeg, gif) and some others might include a reference to a style to be applied in the client side.
