The scope of this project is the building of a framework of connectors (generators, transformers, actions, etc.) between Apache Cocoon and various geographic information services (be they proprietary or open-source). Potential services include:
The connectors will, where relevant, build upon OpenGIS standard interfaces like: WMS, WFS, Catalog services like ZAP.
The goal is building connectors that are not tied to any particular software. These facilities are based upon Geographic Markup Language (GML) and rely on Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD).
