What is OpenWPS ?

OpenWPS is a climate-data-specific service using OGC (Open geospatial consortium) WPS (web processing service) that is an international standard in spatial information field. Users can use OpenWPS using three operations that are GetCapabilities, DescribeProcess, and Execute on any environment (e.g. graphical user interface program, server system, web service, etc.)
more easily and conveniently.
