Marine Modeling as a Service

ISW-2011: Integrating Sensor Web and Web-based Geoprocessing, An AGILE 2011 Conference Workshop; Utrecht, The Netherlands, April 18, 2011

“Modeling marine environments is a necessity to provide basic knowledge for decision making in coastal zone management. Current modeling software is usually implemented as stand-alone solutions. With the trend towards data infrastructures, efforts need to be made to introduce marine modeling into such infrastructures on an interoperable basis in order to improve its capabilities. We propose a service architecture, relying on trusted OGC services like the Web Processing Service or the Sensor Observation Service. We briefly summarize an implementation strategy.”
