Title Integration and visualisation of geospatial data through a common data model and standardised services
Abstract In the environmental data arena, datasets are often held in formats or database schemas specific to each dataset. Developing integrated spatial information services, such as those required by the European INSPIRE directive, will require these data to be represented through a common data model. One such model is provided by the Climate Science Modelling Language (CSML). Here we present a method of efficiently representing environmental data from custom database schemas in CSML and exposing them through the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) web services Web Feature Service (WFS) and Web Map Service (WMS). This enables visualisation of two different environmental datasets via GoogleEarth® and a web browser.
