ZOO-Project

ZOO-Project is a WPS (Web Processing Service) implementation written in C. It is an open source platform which implements the WPS 1.0.0 and WPS 2.0.0 standards edited by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).

ZOO-Project provides a developer-friendly framework for creating and chaining WPS compliant Web Services. Its main goal is to provide generic and standard-compliant methods for using existing open source librairies and algorithms as WPS. It also offers efficient tools for creating new innovative web services and applications.

ZOO-Project is able to process geospatial or non geospatial data online. Its core processing engine (aka ZOO-Kernel) lets you execute a number of existing ZOO-Services based on reliable software and libraries. It also gives you the ability to create your own WPS Services from new or existing source code, which can be written in seven different programming languages. That lets you compose or turn code as WPS Services simply, with straightforward configuration and standard coding methods.

ZOO-Project is very flexible with data input and output so you can process almost any kind of data stored locally or accessed from remote servers and databases. ZOO-Project excels in data processing and integrates new or existing spatial data infrastructures, as it is able to communicate with map servers and can integrate webmapping clients.
