A group of people (to which I belong to) in the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC, www.ogc.org <http://www.ogc.org>) would like to move the BigTIFF specification into the OGC standards process. The intention is to create a OGC standard that is fully compatible with the existing documentation and implementation of BigTIFF. We would like to do this in a open process and make sure that the community that was behind the BigTIFF specification are invited to participate in the process and are well recognized for their previous work. The OGC will provide a process to maintain the standard in the future and will work to make GeoTIFF and Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG) standards to support both TIFF and BigTIFF. All OGC standards are available for free in the OGC website.
The process will be done in a open GitHub repository and the first attempt can be found here: https://github.com/opengeospatial/BigTIFF <https://github.com/opengeospatial/BigTIFF> You are invited to submit issues or to create pull requests as part of the way to provided comments and improve the standard draft.
Is there any objection or comment before we start this process?
My software is free, but my time generally not.
