Apache Spatial Information System (SIS) is a Java library for developing geospatial applications which conform to international standards. SIS implements interfaces derived from UML published jointly by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). In the North America ApacheCon 2014 we introduced the OGC vision and how SIS implements the “geospatial metadata” and “referencing by coordinates” international standards. In this presentation we will present what is new on the standards front: the “metadata” revision published in 2014, and the “Well-Known Text 2” format which can be seen as an evolution of “referencing by coordinates”. We will present which problems the new standards solve, and how SIS preserves compatibility between the old and new standards. Finally we will present the plan for next SIS developments.
