Abstract

As access to spatial and real-time data improves, the need for appropriate software tools has become prevalent. To develop geospatial applications in this context requires an approach to software architecture that helps developers evolve their solutions in flexible ways. Two concepts are today considered reasonable here – web services and agents. This paper presents generic geospatial agents in a prototype of agent development environment KRATT. Pilot applications are described and experience discussed.
