Title Building a GIS Hosting Environment using Open Source
Abstract GIS Web Services Hosting Environment project's goal is to provide a centralized hosting platform for geospatial data providers to upload and publish their data via Open Geospatial Consortium-compliant web services. The benefits of this approach include giving all data providers access to a common platform enabling standards-based, interoperable data sharing and publishing, without needing to configure and maintain the software at the program office level. To minimize costs and maximize potential for scalability, it leverages popular open source GIS software packages that will be customized to work within a enterprise computing environment.
