Developing a Web Service-Compatible Map Server for Geophysical Applications

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) defines a number of standards (both for data models and for online services) that have been widely adopted in the Geographical Information System (GIS) community. In this paper we will describe our group’s efforts to implement GIS services according to OGC standard specifications in accordance with the Web Services approach. … Read more

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

Implementing GIS Grid Services for the International Solid Earth Research Virtual Observatory

We describe our continuing work on implementing Open GIS Consortium (OGC) compatible Grid Services for the International Solid Earth Research Virtual Observatory. Our initial efforts focused on collecting Earthquake and GPS data from various sources, converting them to GML and enabling query capabilities using pure Web Services approach. We have extended this work by creating … Read more

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

Message Exchange For Web Services-Based Mapping Services

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) [1] 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. The emergence of Web Service technique overcomes the … Read more
