Geoprocessing web services

Funded under: FP7-ICT

Abstract

Since 2003, Critech has performed research on web based geoprocessing. This was before OGC started work on the Web Processing Service standards. While continuously evaluating the benefits and drawbacks of existing (open-source and commercial) GIS software packages, the operational benefits of an ESRI site license drove the development in this area. Early work focused on scripting technologies. In 2007, Critech exploited the Application Program Interfaces (APIs) of ESRI software, in particular ESRI SDE. With the (stable) release of ESRI ArcGIS Server, web geoprocessing becomes an integral part of the software. This new technology will be used by Critech in 2008. This document reports on the status of the work.
