eHabitat, a multi-purpose Web Processing Service for ecological modeling

G. Dubois, M. Schulz, J. Skøien, L. Bastin, S. Peedell
2013 Environmental Modelling & Software  
Despite the availability of the agreed WPS standard for Web-based geospatial modeling, few practical implementations exist, making eHabitat a significant addition to the field.  ...  It is the purpose of this paper to illustrate these concepts by presenting eHabitat, a basic Web Processing Service (WPS) for computing the likelihood of finding ecosystems with equal properties to those  ...  We also acknowledge the comments of the reviewers who helped us to substantially improve the structure and contents of this paper.  ...

Managing uncertainty in integrated environmental modelling: The UncertWeb framework

Lucy Bastin, Dan Cornford, Richard Jones, Gerard B.M. Heuvelink, Edzer Pebesma, Christoph Stasch, Stefano Nativi, Paolo Mazzetti, Matthew Williams
2013 Environmental Modelling & Software  
In this article we describe the developments within the UncertWeb project which are designed to provide uncertainty support in the context of the proposed 'Model Web'.  ...  On the other hand, the rich array of modelling frameworks and simulation tools which support uncertainty propagation in complex and chained models typically lack the benefits of web based solutions such  ...  Acknowledgements The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007(FP7/ -2013 under grant agreement n [248488], UncertWeb.  ...
