3Introduction
4============
5
6ZOO Services are example Web services which work with the ZOO :ref:`Kernel <kernel-introduction>`.
7They are based on various existing Open Source libraries and tend to provide simple Web processing
8functions such as GIS format conversion, GIS file reprojection, basic spatial operations,
9basic raster operations...
10
11The available ZOO Services are under development and come without any warranty. They are based
12on existing code and prove that the :ref:`ZOO Kernel <kernel-introduction>` works with many different
13codes and languages (please have a look to the ZOO demos!). The ZOO Project team wants to encourage
14people to use the ZOO Services as a functional basis for Web processing, but above all to provide a
15source of inspiration to the community for creating new ZOO Services.
