Sample Spatial Analysis Server
A sample spatial analysis server is shown in Figure 4.2. A set of software libraries performs search and data retrieval operations on a compiled map database. The spatial operations defined earlier require specialized business logic and access the digital map database using the access libraries. An interface is provided to integrate the spatial analysis server into your location server infrastructure. If possible, selecting a standards-based interface for spatial operations, such as GML (see Appendix B for the complete specification), provides maximum extensibility for your system.
