Subject [jira] [Created] (SIS-196) OGP organization has been renamed IOGP
Date Thu, 09 Apr 2015 09:31:12 GMT
Martin Desruisseaux created SIS-196:

             Summary: OGP organization has been renamed IOGP
                 Key: SIS-196
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Referencing
    Affects Versions: 0.5
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
            Assignee: Martin Desruisseaux
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.6

The OGP organization, which is the maintainer of EPSG database, is now known as IOGP (International
Association of Oil & Gas Producers). We should rename at least in the source code.

We need to deprecate the {{Citations.OGP}} constant. But maybe we should not provide a {{Citations.IOGP}}
replacement, since experience suggests that there is confusion about whether we need to use
{{Citations.OGP}} or {{Citations.EPSG}} in source code. Since Apache SIS refers to IOGP only
in the context of EPSG database, we should probably not provide any replacement, and keep
only the current {{Citations.EPSG}} constant. This would remove a source of confusion.

Whether we should also rename "OGP" to "IOGP" in XML documents is still an open question.
The site is still reporting "OGP" in their GML exports.
