About OpenGIS® Web Processing Service (WPS)
The GIScience at the University of Heidelberg has set up a deegree2 based Web Processing Service (WPS) including several generic and complex processes. Furthermore a generic WPS-client has been developed which can be used with any WPS instance.

The Web Processing Service specification has been standardized by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) OpenGIS® Web Processing Service (WPS) in order to allow interoperable analysis and processing of geographic data through web services. As the specification allows a high deegree of flexibility there is need for further research in order to improve interoperability of geographic analysis on the Web.
