In a service-oriented geoscientific research environment, individual geospatial services must be chained together as scientific workflows to solve a complex geospatial problem. The emergence of various visual workflow designers, such as Taverna, GridNexus, Kepler, greatly facilitates the construction of geoscientific workflows. However, existing scientific workflow tools are mainly desktop-based. The emergence of Web 2.0 technology has shown promise to develop a the browser-based scientific… CONTINUE READING
