Hello Cédric,

One of the ZOO Project demo could fit to your second use case.

The user can draw a polyline on a DEM layer and see the corresponding
elevation profile in a jquery dialog.
The calculation is done using GDAL as a WPS ZOO Service, which takes the
drawn LineString and the DEM layer as input data, and outputs the profile.


Hope it helps
