PyWPS 1.0.0 released: GRASS goes Web

Today PyWPS 1.0.0 has been released by Jachym Cepicky. PyWPS (Python Web Processing Service) implements the OGC Web Processing Service (WPS) standard in Python programming language. It has been written with native support for GRASS GIS which allows for accessing GRASS modules via Web. Processes can be run asynchronously. By default, GRASS GIS is supported, other tools (R, GDAL/OGR, PROJ.4, …) can be configured, too.

A first demo application can be seen here: WUIW – a PyWPS AJAX Web Interface.

    I have now updated my post to reflect reality. Sorry for the ignorance, I only looked at site names. You might consider adding your “PyWPS is developed by…” line on the front page as well, so that it is not mistaken by others like me.I should have stuck with just pointing out the EMBRIO interface, since that was my main goal. :-)
