Foerster, T; Burghardt, D; Neun, M; Regnauld, N; Swan , J; Weibel, Robert (2008). Towards an interoperable web generalisation services framework – current work in progress. In: 11th ICA Workshop on Generalisation and Multiple Representation, Montpellier, France, 20 June 2008 - 21 June 2008, 1-12.



Web Generalisation Services are now receiving considerable attention from the research community. In this context, interoperability has been identified as a crucial beneficiary of the Web Service concept. This has inspired the formation of a working group to establish consensus for Web Generalisation Services and to specify further technical requirements. The intent of this working group is to enable a higher degree of interoperability and thereby increase the possibilities for exchanging and sharing generalisation functionality over the Web. OGC’s WPS interface specification has been taken as a basis, since it provides a standardized means within the geo-spatial domain to establish processes such as generalisation. This paper reports the current status of the working group and the forthcoming work items.
