Cloud computing can bring Geographical Information Systems (GIS) considerable benefits in terms of scalability, performance and cost-effectiveness. Nowadays, a lot of organizations in the geo-spatial field need to process geographical data to do some complex operations. So they need to use a program for few minutes only and we have to bring the necessary tools to be able of executing these applications in the cloud. In AKKA Research center, we developed the CLOUDS project PaaS which aims to use Cloud capabilities to build efficient GIS applications and that was the subject of my final internship. The project was following the innovation process defined by AKKA Research (State of the art, Test, Proof of concept, Design, Implementation…).
The purpose of this poster is to show the design of a geo-publication service in the cloud to allow the using of GIS applications and services. Those applications are running in a private cloud based on Openstack- the leading open source framework for building clouds. The architecture of the service is built using open source tools only (Postgres/PostGIS databases, Mapserver, Geoserver….). This service is on demand and will allow deploying a scalable architecture.
