Snowflake Software’s GO Publisher: the First to attain WFS 1.1.0 Compliance from the OGC

Snowflake Software is proud to announce that GO Publisher WFS is the first Web Feature Server to meet the new stringent Team Engine WFS 1.0.0 and WFS 1.1.0 Compliance Tests of the Open Geospatial Consortium. GO Publisher WFS was awarded certification to the OpenGIS® Web Feature Service Implementation Specification, Version 1.0.0 and Version 1.1.0 after passing over 200 individual tests on February 28, 2008.

March 11, 2008 -- Raj Singh, Director of Interoperability Programs at the OGC, who oversees the Compliance Test Program said, "We are pleased to see an innovative company like Snowflake Software realize the value of the 'OGC Compliance Mark'.  Certified OGC Compliance with a standard like WFS gives purchasers an extra degree of certainty that Snowflake's product will be interoperable, a key criterion for spatial data software in this age of heightened expectations around data sharing and real-time data."

GO Publisher Version 1.3 is the latest release of Snowflake's GML publishing suite. In addition to obtaining WFS 1.0.0 and WFS 1.1.0 compliance, GO Publisher v1.3 incorporates many additional features including: JBOSS support, JNDI database connections, XPath property queries, additional WFS filter requests and extensions to enable root level metadata. These will be of particular benefit to users wanting to publish their data to complex GML schemas and be able to run advanced WFS filter queries on these schemas in a standards compliant manner.

GO Publisher is being used internationally by many very demanding applications. Its User Base includes companies such as the European Commission Joint Research Centre, TNO and the UK MET Office, all of whom are working on highly challenging implementations. The technical expertise of the users has naturally raised the expectations of the product's capabilities, encouraging the earliest adoption of new requirements.

"We are delighted to have secured this certification of compliance to Version 1.1.0 with the new release of the product," explained Eddie Curtis, CTO of Snowflake Software. "Snowflake has always supported Open Standards and the interoperability initiatives. To receive this certificate now further underlines that commitment."

GO Publisher Version 1.3 is now released and shipping. For further information or to request an evaluation copy, please contact Email Contact.

About GO Publisher

The GO Publisher product suite covers two key requirements:

1) I wish to publish my data as XML and create an XML Schema.
This requirement addresses the need for users to quickly exchange data in an open manner

2) I have been given an XML Schema and I wish to publish my data in XML to it.
This requirement enables users to quickly contribute to wider standards' initiatives where they have already been provided an XML Schema and need to translate their data into it.

To date, GO Publisher has been successfully applied to a variety of schemas, including but not limited to;

  • BS7666 XML
  • CityGML
  • EuroRoads
  • IMGeo
  • IMRO 2006
  • KML
  • NAS / AAA
  • NEN3610
  • OS MasterMap
