Information Services for Grid/Web Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Based Geospatial Applications

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) presents data-intensive environment for acquiring, processing and sharing geo-data among interested parties. In order to serve geographical information to users in such environment, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) principles have gained great importance. In SOA-based systems, Information Services support the discovery and handling of these geospatial services. Some options for Information Services … Read more Information Services for Grid/Web Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Based Geospatial Applications

OGC Compatible Geographical Information Systems Web Services

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) defines a number of standards, both for data models and for online services, that has been widely adopted in the Geographical Information System (GIS) community. This has lead to a number of software development efforts, online data archives, and application communities. We survey these in the first part of this … Read more OGC Compatible Geographical Information Systems Web Services
