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

Implementing Geographical Information System Grid Services to Support Computational Geophysics in a Service-Oriented Environment

We describe the architecture and implementation of the Solid Earth Research Virtual Observatory (SERVO)’s Complexity Computational Environment. We base our design on a globally scalable distributed “cyber-infrastructure,” or Grid, built around a Web Services-based approach consistent with the extended Web Service Interoperability (WS-I+) model. In order to investigate problems in earthquake modeling and forecasting, we … Read more Implementing Geographical Information System Grid Services to Support Computational Geophysics in a Service-Oriented Environment
