Communication to Scenario Management System

The communication layer between the clients (operating the Scenario Management System web interface) and the Common Services must be able to deal with both model execution as well as data transfer in both directions.

The communication layer between the clients (operating the Scenario Management System web interface) and the Common Services must be able to deal with both model execution as well as data transfer in both directions.
SUDPLAN has the goal to use standardized OGC services, this to assure that new models – both in Common Services and in local city pilot applications - will be easy to connect to the core of SUDPLAN, the SMS system.

The Sensor Planning Service (SPS) will be the first option for model execution in SUDPLAN. Access to the results requires a generic interface in order to enable clients (SMS) to access results in a unified way.

For this purpose two standardized web service interfaces have been positively evaluated. Depending on the data type and organisation the Sensor Observation Service (SOS) and Web Coverage Service (WCS) shall be used. WCS, alternatively also Web Feature Service (WFS) and Web Map Service (WMS), will be used where results (grid, polygons, layers) shall be presented on a map.
