A WFS-based mediation system for GIS interoperability
The proliferation of spatial data on the Internet is beginning to allow a much wider access to data currently available in various Geographic Information Systems (GIS). In order to move to a real Web-based community where geographical data can be accessed and exchanged, we need to provide flexible and powerful GIS data integration solutions. Indeed, GIS are highly heterogeneous: not only they differ by their data representations, but they also offer radically different query languages. A GIS mediation approach should provide (1) an integrated view of the data supplied by all sources, and (2) a geographical query language to access and manipulate integrated data. In this paper we propose an approach that not only focuses on the data integration, but also addresses the integration of query capabilities available at the sources. A GIS may provide a query capability inexistent at another GIS, whereas two query capabilities may be similar but with a slightly different semantics. We introdu...
