Welcome to the ZOO Project

ZOO is a WPS (Web Processing Service) open source project released under the MIT/X-11 license. It provides an OGC WPS compliant developer-friendly framework to create and chain WPS webservices. ZOO is made of three parts:

  • ZOO Kernel : A powerful server-side C Kernel which makes it possible managing and chaining webservices coded in different programming languages.
  • ZOO Services : A growing suite of example webservices based on various librairies open source libraries. (get inspired !)
  • ZOO API : A simple Javascript API able to call and chain the ZOO Services, which makes the developement and chaining processes easier.

Powerful ZOO Kernel, that makes coffee

ZOO is based on a 'WPS Service Kernel' which constitutes the ZOO's core system (aka ZOO Kernel ). The latter is able to load dynamic librairies and to handle them as on-demand webservices. The ZOO Kernel is written in C language, but supports several common programming languages in order to stay opened to numerous librairies and above all to simplify the webservice end-developer's job.

Use the ZOO Services and make your own

A ZOO service is as a couple composed by a metadata file (.zcfg) and the code for the corresponding implementation. The metadata file describes all the available functions which can be called using a WPS Exec Request, as well as the desired input/output. Services contain the algorithms and functions, and can now be implemented in C/C++, Fortran, Java, Python, PHP and Javascript.

Easy implementation with the ZOO API

The ZOO API is a simple and concise Javascript library designed to call and chain the ZOO Services easily, and adds the glue between your ZOO Kernel installation and your webmapping application.
