This standard describes the Atom encoding of the OWC Context conceptual model. The goal of this standard is to provide a definition of how to encode a context document, which can be extended to allow a context referencing a fully configured service set to be defined and consistently interpreted by clients. The OGC Web Services 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 nodes. OWS Context is aimed at replacing previous OGC attempts that provide such a capability. Web Map Context (WMC) has been reasonably successful but is limited to WMS. Other work.....
