Design and Deploy Microservice for GIS Application apply OGC Standard
11-29, 13:50–14:10 (Asia/Seoul), Seoul Archive

In the past, the installation of GIS applications often encountered challenges regarding the flexibility of services, which were unable to be scaled to accommodate a growing number of users. The interconnection and exchanging of data across services were constrained, and service separation was not feasible. These issues had a significant impact on overall usability.

The design and deployment of applications in the form of microservices are gaining popularity and widespread adoption. This approach aims to provide flexibility to the installation process, allowing services to be added or reduced as needed to align with usage requirements. It can subdivide services into smaller units to facilitate installation, following the principles outlined in The Twelve-Factor App (

Nowadays, GIS application development has OGC Standards, which are standardized guidelines that define the process of storing and providing geospatial data. These standards encompass a multitude of aspects of geospatial information interoperability. Therefore, the principles of The Twelve-Factor App can be adapted to the design and deployment of GIS applications, ensuring compliance with OGC Standards.

This session will elaborate on how the principles of The Twelve-Factor App can be harmonized with OGC Standards, as well as the various technologies selected for the design and deployment of applications.
