I would like to introduce the “WPS-Ilwis Bridge” Google Summer of Code 2015 project, hosted by 52°North.
The 52°North WPS currently supports different backends, like R or GRASS. The goal of this project is to extend its functionality by adding Ilwis Objects as a processing backend.
This extension will enable users to carry out ILWIS commands on a remote server via a WPS interface without having to install ILWIS.
The project shall allow WPS users to:
- Run ILWIS’ several hundred vector and raster operations. Some examples for ILWIS’ capability are: resampling, mosaicing, interpolation, distance calculation, raster image calculation, statistics and histogram, intersect, union, buffer operations.
- Easily add new commands.
- Get information about failures.
- Test if the backend is well-configured.
My name is Áron Károlyi. I am a 2nd year student at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary – studying Computer Engineering.
