A RESTful WfXML A RESTful WfXML Presentation Transcript

  • A RESTful WfXML User-Centric Resource Oriented Architecture (ROA) Approach Pat G. Cappelaere pat@cappelaere.com pat@vightel.com Transformation and Innovation Series pat@geobliki.com Tuesday, October 30th http://blog.geobliki.com 7:30–10:30am Sheraton Crystal City Hotel Arlington, VA 1
  • Open GeoSpatial Consortium • The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.® (OGC) is a non-profit, international, voluntary consensus standards organization that is leading the development of standards for geospatial and location based services. • OpenGIS Specifications & Reference Models • Sensor Web Enabled (SWE) Web Services: Sensor Planning Service, Observation Service, Processing Service, Feature Server, Catalog Service... • Best Practice Documents & Discussion Papers • Other Standards • GML, KML, [GeoRss/Atom] http://www.opengeospatial.org/ 2
  • OGC Interoperability Efforts • Interoperability Demonstrations • OWS-4, OWS-5... • DOD Empire Challenge Architecture Support • GEOSS Pilot Program • and many others... 3

This instrument samples the Earth’s surface radiation in 220 contiguous wavelength intervals from 400 to 2500 nanometers, spanning the spectrum from visible light to shortwave infrared (SWIR). The leftmost visualization, a composite of red, blue and green radiation, displays the scene as the human eye would perceive it. To the right is a composite of three SWIR bands which are sensitive to emissive properties associated with fires and lava flows. 8

  • Unique Opportunity For System-Level Architectural Change 16
  • RESTful Services For ROA Everything is a url! • http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/9780596529260/index.html “to codify the folklore, define whatʼs been left undefined, and try to move past the theological arguments.” HTTP with Five Operations: HEAD, GET, PUT, POST and DELETE 17
  • Other Technologies For Successful ROA • Publishing Formats: GeoRSS/Atom, KML • Atom Publishing Protocol (APP) • GData • OpenSearch • Security 18
  • Resource URI Patterns and Nested Resources • Resource Collections Are Plural • GET /recipes Retrieve all available recipes • GET /recipes/{id} Retrieve specific recipe by id • GET /recipes/{name} Retrieve specific recipe by name • Nested Collections (recipes have many ingredients) • GET /recipes/{id}/ingredients/ Retrieve all available ingredients for that particular recipe • GET /recipes/{id}/ingredients/{id} Retrieve specific ingredient for that particular recipe • same as: GET /ingredients/{id | name} Retrieve specific ingredient by id or name Note: Last 2 GET’s return the same data. BUT first one keeps track of context. Try to backtrack the URL to see what you would get 19
  • APP: Atom Publishing Protocol Format draft-ietf-atompub-protocol-17.txt • The Atom Publishing Protocol is an application-level protocol for publishing and editing Web Resources using HTTP [RFC2616] and XML 1.0 [REC-xml]. The protocol supports the creation of Web Resources and provides facilities for: * Collections: Sets of Resources, which can be retrieved in whole or in part. * Services: Discovery and description of Collections. * Editing: Creating, editing, and deleting Resources. Geo/Atom In - Geo/Atom Out http://bitworking.org/projects/atom/draft-ietf-atompub-protocol-17.html 20
  • Google GData • The Google data APIs (quot;GDataquot; for short) provide a simple standard protocol for reading and writing data on the web. • GData uses either of two standard XML-based syndication formats: Atom or RSS. It also has a feed-publishing system that consists of the Atom publishing protocol plus some extensions (using Atom's standard extension model) for handling queries (including geoqueries) • Items of type Products containing the terms digital and camera in the area of San Francisco: digital camera [item type: products] [location: @quot;San Francisco, CAquot; + 50mi] snippets/-/products?bq=digital+camera+%5blocation:@%22San+Francisco,CA%22%2b50mi %5d 21
  • OpenSearch http://www.opensearch.org • OpenSearch 1.1 • OpenSearch Description Document • Discoverable by Browser • Geo Extension Draft 22
  • Security • OpenID 2.0 + Auth or PKI • OpenAuth (AOL) • That’s another topic of discussion! 23
