OGC KUFFIA Modules

OGC KUFFIA Modules

KUFFIA modules are the factory Java processor modules provided with the KEO system and available if administrator ingests and configures them. Among others, theOGC KUFFIAmodules are intended to deal with generic OGC services. Three OCG standards have been implemented in the KEO context: WCS, WFS, WMS.

WCS

The Web Coverage Service (WCS) Interface Standard is a standard created by the OGC (http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcs) which refers to the geospatial information provided as ‘coverages’: digital geospatial information representing space-varying phenomena. WCS provides a standard interface for how to request the raster source of a geospatial image.The results of a WCS can be used for complex modeling and analysis, as it often contains more information. It also allows more complex querying - clients can extract just the portion of the coverage that they need.

Below for a brief description of available modules.

KEO WCS Capabilities Getter: Retrieves capabilities from specified WCS Server

KEO WCS Getter: Retrieves geospatial data from specified WCS Server

KEO WCS Getter 1.0.0 BBOX: Retrieves geospatial data from specified WCS Server version 1.0.0 and a input Bounding BOX

KEO WCS Getter 1.0.0 Time: Retrieves geospatial data from specified WCS Server version 1.0.0 and an input Time

KEO WCS Getter 1.1.0: Retrieves geospatial data from specified WCS Server version 1.1.0 or newer.

KEO GeoServer WCS Inserter: Save a coverage into a GeoServer WCS via GeoServer RESTful API.
 

WFS

The Web Feature Service (WFS) Interface Standard (http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wfs) provides an interface allowing requests for geographical features across the web using platform-independent calls. One can think of geographical features as the "source code" behind a map, whereas the WMS interface or online mapping portals like Google Maps return only an image, which end-users cannot edit or spatially analyze. The XML-based GML furnishes the default payload-encoding for transporting the geographic features, but other formats like shapefiles can also serve for transport.

Below for a brief description of available modules.

KEO WFS Capabilities Getter: Retrieves capabilities from specified WFS Server.
KEO WFS Getter: Retrieves features from specified WFS Server.
KEO WFS Inserter: Inserts a layer into a WFS Server.
 

WMS

The Web Map Service (WMS) Interface Standard (http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wms) is a standard protocol for serving georeferenced map images over the Internet that are generated by a map server using data from a GIS database. The specification was developed and first published by the Open Geospatial Consortium in 1999. A WMS server usually serves the map in a bitmap format, e.g. PNG, GIF or JPEG.

Below for a brief description of available modules.

KEO WMS Capabilities Getter: Retrieves capabilities from specified WMS Server.
KEO WMS Getter1: Retrieves map from specified WMS Server.
KEO WMS Getter2: Retrieves map from specified WMS Server.
