Re: WebVMT Status Update

Rob and Chris,

I manage the IANA media type registrations for OGC. For a media type to be registered under the standards tree, there needs to be an international standard to which the media type is associated, so such registration is a little early now. There is the option to register under the vendor tree (under Rob’s company), but you would need to decide if the registration is urgent enough to merit being under a tree different than standards.

Best Regards,

Clemens Portele and Simon Cox probably have the most experience, but staffer Gobe Hobona is starting and has established an OGC media type registry, probably with Rob Atkinson’s help, as part of the process of registering with IANA.
