The 52°North Geoprocessing Community releases a new Web Processing Service Version. The WPS 2.0-RC6 contains the following new features:

  • an out-of-the-Box GRASS connector (no programming needed). A tutorial provides instructions on how to connect GRASS with the WPS. A list of processes is also available.
  • a new easy-to-use WebAdmin interface for WPS configuration. It is no longer necessary to manually change the XML files and low level code.
  • a new Windows Installer
  • improved KML Reader and Writers
  • several smaller bug fixes


52°North wishes all 52N software users, developers and partners happy holidays! We would also like to thank all partners for the successful collaboration we have experienced in 2010. We look forward to exploring horizons with you in 2011!

Happy New Year!
