Using Web services, the authors have been able to increase the amount of data accessible through the Naval Research Laboratory?s Geospatial Information Database (GIDB) portal. They created a Web crawler for Web Mapping Services (WMS) that harvests and adds data to the portal index and a translator that provides access to non-WMS data through the WMS interface. The Integrated Web Services Broker, using traditional Web services standards, provides automated access to meteorological and oceanographic data.
Index Terms:
Web services, GIS, GIDB portal, data source indexing
