Jump to: navigation, search

PyWPS is a python implementation of OGC Web Processing Service. It should make life easier for those who want to interface custom geospatial calculations into a Service Oriented Architecture.

PyWPS is:

  • a framework for the implementation of WPS 1.0.0
  • completely written in python 2.6
  • organized into packages and classes for easy maintenance
  • open to new developments and functionalities that can be integrated in WPS 1.0.0
  • run from bash or as a cgi process

PyWPS is not:

  • an analytical tool or engine. It does not perform any type of geospatial calculation itself
  • an XML parser or generator. It does not validate the GMLs against given schemas (yet), it does not build GML from Python objects
  • a full HTTP application framework like CherryPy
