Abstract: (Summary adapted from JaGo web pages.)
Deegree (formally JaGo) is a free software initiative founded by
the GIS and Remote Sensing unit of the Department of Geography,
University of Bonn, and lat/lon.
Deegree is a Java framework for geospatially-enabled
solutions. It is based on common GI standards and allows
building applications with spatially referenced content.
Deegree components can be ... used to either develop a standalone
desktop mapping solution to be locally installed on a user's
machine, or to set up a highly distributed and service-based
The central concept of deegree is the realisation of the best
possible interoperability at the structure of GI
architectures. This is managed by the implementation of the
standards which passed the open GIS consortium and the ISO. In
the current release deegree implements the OGC WMS 1.0.0 (partly
also the WMS 1.1.1) and the WFS speficiations, the OGC stateless
catalog service specifications, the OGS coordinate system
transformation specifications (kindly being provided by Martin
Desruisseaux and the SEAGIS project) as well as the OGS
gridcoverage specifications (in extracts) and the GML 2.11
specifications. An implementation of the OGC WCS 0.7
specifications is in preparation and will be available over the
autumn. As the basis of all spatial operations a geometry model
based on the ISO19107 was implemented.
Moreover, classes for reading and writing ESRI shapefiles and
OGC well known binaries (WKBs) as well as for reading oracle
spatial, ODBC or rather JDBC databases are available.
Under the terms of the conception of OGC, deegree is based on a
service architecture by which the particular components are
interacting with each other by well-defined interfaces. Whether
the communication of the particular components takes place
local, via intranet or internet is normally extraneous.
Deegree is a free software initiative founded by the GIS and
Remote Sensing unit of the Department of Geography, University
of Bonn, and lat/lon. We would gladly welcome any contribution
to further development and implementation.
