I am currently evaluating different OGC Services(WFS,WMS and WPS) for driving zone computation. As I am new to WPS services, I would like some suggestions regarding which OGC services to implement.
I am thinking through these issues right now:
If I use WPS to calculate driving zones, is it better to integrate this computation as Web Processing Service or to directly compute it in the App Server? Would the client be overwhelmed or exhausted with delays in computation?
Is there any way to deal with driving zone computations that exceed some predefined computation time limit, like couple of seconds?
Also is there any issue if my background map layer is in different road network than the road network where driving zone computation is being performed?
Please correct me if my concept is misleading.
