The OWS framework is a working title for a  Python software framework being developed at the  BADC for implementing Open Geospatial Consortium web service standards.

The framework aims facilitate the implementation of the latest WMS, WPS and WCS specifications on top of a single metadata and data model.

  1. All services generate OWS Common 1.1.0 compliant GetCapabilities metadata internally. This is then serialised to service-specific GetCapabilities XML by the framework.
  2. The data model is CSML for feature manipulation and  cdat_lite for fine-grained array manipulation.
