PyWPS workflow group.

Web Processing Service (WPS) is an OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) protocol designed for running GIS (Geographical Information System), and spatial analys in a SOA system.

WPS uses a getCapabilities and DescribeProcess for service/operation discovery and then Execute to run the service/operation. The protocol is based in XML  or KVP in HTTP-GET or HTTP-POST.  WPS allows for the use of WSDL/SOAP interfaces but there is some lack of works in this field.

PyWPS is a Python implementation of WPS, there are several implemenations, like 52 North, degree, ZOO, grass-gis etc. PyWPS has a new WSDL/SOAP that is mainly Taverna oriented.

Hopely people will post Workflows showing WPS working :) giving a boost to the GeoInformatics presence in this sort of sharing plantforms
