A Typology of Real-Time Parallel Geoprocessing for the Sensor Web Era
Source: Newcastle University
The rise of digital sensors and the Sensor Web is expected to have wide reaching implications for the monitoring of the physical and human world and has already resulted in an explosion in the volume and availability of spatially referenced data pertaining to the surroundings. While this deluge of easily accessible near real-time data brings numerous opportunities, it also presents a significant challenge in terms of geoprocessing. Existing geoprocessing systems must be adapted to meet the requirements of this new era of spatial data infrastructure.
