GNOSIS Map Tiles: Open specifications for tiles of vector, imagery, coverages, point clouds, referenced and embedded 3D models
An overview of the GNOSIS Map Tiles (GMTs) open specifications for tiling geospatial data developed by Ecere in conjunction with OGC Testbed 13 and 14 and the latest draft specifications can be found in OGC Engineering Report:
GMTs can contain different types of data such as vector data, satellite imagery, coverages/elevation models, point clouds and either embedded or referenced 3D models (e.g. using Ecere's E3D format, or another encoding such as glTF for example).
GMTs are compact, ensure proper vector topology, and minimizes the time required to load onto GPU for hardware accelerated rendering.
GNOSIS Cartographic Map Style Sheets (CMSS) - an elegant and powerful styling language for both classic and 3D cartography
An overview of GNOSIS CMSS, a styling language for both classic and 3D cartography.
Ecere developed the GNOSIS Cascading Map Style Sheets language in conjunction with the OGC Innovation Program's Tetstbed 13 and 14, and the open specifications for it are available in a public Engineering Report: http://docs.opengeospatial.org/per/18-025.html#StylingModel
Key features of GNOSIS CMSS include cascading of styling rules and sheets, any symbolizer value can be a complex expression, and a concise and clear syntax.
