Nicolas Bozon and GÃ©rald Fenoy have just announced the ZOO Kernel 1.0 release (MIT/X-11 style license). This release offers the ZOO API (also under MIT) and some sample ZOO services.
From the Web site atÂ http://www.zoo-project.org/
ZOO is an on-going OWS (OGC Web Services) open source platform project. It provides a WPS compliant developer-friendly framework to create and chain OGC compliant webservices. The ZOO OWS platform is made of three parts:
- ZOO Kernel : A powerful and extensible server-side C Kernel which makes it possible creating, managing and chaining geoprocessing operations.
- ZOO Desktop Client: A Mozilla XULRunner based GIS desktop application able to execute WPS queries with both local and remote data.
