Dear QGIS developers,
at the National Research Council of Italy in Pisa we have just released 
a free WPS service running in a distributed e-Infrastructure and using 
Cloud computing behind the scenes. The name of the service is DataMiner 
and collects several methods developed by computational biology, 
oceanography and data mining communities. We have successfully tested 
this service with QGIS and we would like to make it available among the 
default WPS services in the official distribution of QGIS.

The service usage is free, after obtaining a token on our projects Web 
portal (http://i-marine.d4science.org) and subscribing to one of our 
Virtual Research Environments. The available algorithms change according 
to the VRE.

The access point to this distributed network of web services is 

To make the service work you need to provide a user token. Here is one 
user name and token for testing purposes: 

Sample calls:
*Capabilities in the testing VRE:* 
*Input of the DBScan algorithm:* 
*Execution of DBScan:* 

Some documentation is available here 
Surrounding papers about the back-end system are 
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/cpe.3030/abstract and 

Thank you very much for your attention and I hope you will help me 
understanding how to embed the WPS link within QGIS releases.
