This standard defines how to encode an OWS context document that 1.) can be extended to allow a context referencing a fully configured service set, and 2.) can be defined and consistently interpreted by clients. The OWS Context Document standard (OWS Context) was created to allow a set of configured information resources to be passed between applications primarily as a collection of services (but also potentially in-line content). The objective is to support use cases such as the distribution of search results, the exchange of a set of resources in a Common Operating Picture (COP), or delivery of a set of configured processing services to allow the processing to be reproduced on different processing nodes. The goal for OWS Context is to replace previous OGC standards and best practices that provide similar capability. Web Map Context (WMC) has been reasonably successful but .....
