Making W*S suck less

I’m starting to work on contributing SOS and OWS Common support in OWSLib, a groovy and regimented little GIS Python project.

So far so good; some initial implementations are done (committing soon hopefully, writing tests around these).  I think this will add value to the project, seeing that SOS 1.0 has been around long enough to start seeing implementations.  And the OWS Common support will act as a baseline for all calling specs/code to leverage.

And it’s been a nice journey in Python for me so far.  Another thing I like about this project is the commitment to testing — awesome!

    And we’re grateful for the contributions, Tom! My opinions about the protocols aside: W*S is out there, enterprises like yours are dependent on it, and there should be excellent Python tools to make a programmer’s W*S experience as good as possible. It’s a pragmatic project.

    I hope you’re liking doctests 🙂

    Can you point me to the SOS code (as opposed to the WFS/WMS code) for OWSLib?

    @Derek: in trunk at http://trac.gispython.org/lab/browser/OWSLib/trunk/owslib/sos.py.

    At this point, the implementation is partial at best, with Capabilities XML parsing. DescribeSensor and GetObservation support needs to be implemented, as well as doctests for all SOS support. Tests/patches welcome!
