A new era is upon us. The OGC service architecture is undergoing a clean break in an attempt to modernize geospatial API standards. REST, JSON and OpenAPI are now common terminology in emerging OGC API standards. This change will greatly lower the barrier to implementation of services, clients and associated toolkit.

pygeoapi is a young and emerging project that is an early adopter of the new OGC API efforts. pygeoapi is an extensible geosaptial web API framework based in Python that already supports WFS 3.0. This presentation will provide an overview of the project, standards supported, extensibility/plugin framework, real world implementations as well as future plans.
