Publishing processes via OGC API - Processes

OGC API - Processes provides geospatial data processing functionality in a standards-based fashion (inputs, outputs).

pygeoapi implements OGC API - Processes functionality by providing a plugin architecture, thereby allowing developers to implement custom processing workflows in Python.

A sample hello-world process is provided with the pygeoapi default configuration.


            name: HelloWorld

Processing examples

  • list all processes - http://localhost:5000/processes

  • describe the hello-world process - http://localhost:5000/processes/hello-world

  • show all jobs for the hello-world process - http://localhost:5000/processes/hello-world/jobs

  • execute a job for the hello-world process - curl -X POST "http://localhost:5000/processes/hello-world/jobs" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d "{\"inputs\":[{\"id\":\"name\",\"type\":\"text/plain\",\"value\":\"hi there2\"}]}"

  • execute a job for the hello-world process with a raw response - curl -X POST "http://localhost:5000/processes/hello-world/jobs?response=raw" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d "{\"inputs\":[{\"id\":\"name\",\"type\":\"text/plain\",\"value\":\"hi there2\"}]}"


add more examples once OAProc implementation is complete
