Deegree is a Java Framework offering the main building blocks for Spatial Data Infrastructures SDIs. Its entire architecture is developed using standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium OGC and ISO Technical Committee 211-Geographic information/Geoinformatics ISO/TC 211. deegree encompasses OGC Web Services as well as clients. deegree is Free Software protected by the GNU Lesser General Public License GNU LGPL and is accessible at http//www.deegree.org.
Deegree’s Web Catalogue Service implementation Catalogue Service - Web profile, therefore CS-W is able to serve different metadata formats in parallel based on the same physical datastore. This is possible because deegree CS-W uses XSLT processing to transform requests as well as responses into the desired format. deegree CS-W does not contain its a data access modul of its own. It uses an OGC WFS at the moment limited to deegree WFS as datasource. So in future it will be possible to use deegree CS-W on top of any other OGC compliant WFS to offer catalogue functionalities.
