TerraService.NET: An Introduction to Web Services [article]

Tom Barclay, Jim Gray, Eric Strand, Steve Ekblad, Jeffrey Richter
2002 arXiv   pre-print
The TerraService.NET web service was added to the popular TerraServer database and web site with no major structural changes to the database.  ...  This article explores the design and construction of a geo-spatial Internet web service application from the host web site perspective and from the perspective of an application using the web service.  ...  Web Services as an Enabling Technology The TerraService.NET web service provides georeferenced digital ortho-photo images of the United States at several resolutions.  ...

Validating a web service security abstraction by typing

Andrew D. Gordon, Riccardo Pucella
2005 Formal Aspects of Computing  
An XML web service is, to a first approximation, an RPC service in which requests and responses are encoded in XML as SOAP envelopes, and transported over HTTP.  ...  We model our abstraction as an object calculus with primitives for defining and calling web services.  ...  Motivation: Web Services and SOAP A crisp definition, due to the builders of the TerraService.NET service, is that "a web service is a web site intended for use by computer programs instead of human beings  ...

Web-based GIS Application of the WEPP Model

Dennis C. Flanagan, James R. Frankenberger, Bernard A. Engel
2004 2004, Ottawa, Canada August 1 - 4, 2004   unpublished
This paper discusses a web-based WEPP-GIS system that only requires a user to have a network connection and web browser.  ...  GIS Viewer software allows users to specify an area of interest to model with WEPP, then digital elevation data for the area is sent to topographic parameterization software to delineate watersheds, channels  ...  These data do not permanently reside on the NSERL server, but are instead retrieved on demand from TerraServer USA (http://terraservice.net) using the Web Mapping Services protocol.  ...

Cross-Covariance Models [chapter]

2017 Encyclopedia of GIS  
Acknowledgements We would like to thank Keith Harries, Dan Helms, Chris Maxwell and Susan Wernicke-Smith for providing comments on this entry in a very short time.  ...  Efficient tools for extracting information from geo-spatial data are crucial to organizations which make decisions based on large spatial datasets, including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration  ...  These services will be offered through the new Web 2.0 to provide powerful solutions. Transparent GIS Services and integrated geospatial data will affect a larger segment of the population.  ...
