Standards for sharing spatial data on the web have been available for many years, mostly using RPC and XML. A new generation of standards is being developed as modular Web APIs and has already been widely tested. These OGC API standards use OpenAPI to define API building blocks to spatially enable Web APIs supporting two approaches:

1. Clients implemented with knowledge about the OGC API standards and their resources navigate the resources based on this knowledge and based on the hypermedia responses. Clients are able to connect to multiple APIs as long as they implement OGC API standard(s).

2. Developers that are not familiar with the OGC API standards, but want to interact with spatial data provided by such an API, will use the OpenAPI definition and the related tooling. It should not be necessary to study the OGC API standards.

The API design will be explained using live examples.
