because ultimate goal of webGRASS whcih will be as powerful as GRASS GIS
but on web
using pyWPS we can do grass commands in a different way and it is WPS.
I want worlds first webGIS which can do all kind of analysis on web
future webGRASS should act like a web UI like wxGUI.
with webGRASS you only need to carry grass data directory not the whole
In a company if you want to install grass you need to setup a postgis or
WMS layer and share it but you can do GRASS analysis on indivudual system
and some one need to upload it on server for others to use.
See this scenario.
For India or some other country can install webGRASS on a central server
and all government agencies can do all work online using webGRASS. like
land inspection checking which types of agricultural production was going
on in a particular area from their office without going there.
Also a village office can measure the land needed by people for building
their home or company.
Whats wrong if we can do everything under one umbrella webGRASS???
A university can teach GRASS GIS, OpenSource GIS using webGRASS by
installing webGRASS on university website
These all are my goals when I started webGRASS. My ideas can be wrong. If
not it will be a great achivement and people will love to work on GRASS for
teaching, doing analysis within a company etc.. etc...
current way to use GRASS on web is to
use GRASS(analysis) + pyWPS(processing) + OL(rendering)
But remember we cant do all type of analysis using pyWPS (correct me if I
am wrong)... :)
I am thinking a to build a seamless gui which can read grass database
process data show it on web and download it.
In future webGRASS will also be a part of OSGeo :) (just my wish)
Please let me know your comments and suggestions if any
Hope I explained well....
