An approach for service oriented discovery and retrieval of spatial data

Manoj Paul, S. K. Ghosh
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 international workshop on Service-oriented software engineering - SOSE '06  
Ontology-based discovery and retrieval of geographic data solves the problem of semantic heterogeneity, the major bottleneck for spatial interoperability.  ...  We have adopted service-oriented architecture (SOA) for the discovery and retrieval of geospatial data. The architecture uses a central ontology as metadata information, which acts as service broker.  ...  Service Discovery and Retrieval Service Discovery If an information request is submitted to an information broker (ontology), the broker has to decide which of the registered sources it should use to  ...
