  Description     : a Web Processing Service (WPS) framework

ZOO is a WPS (Web Processing Service) open source project. It provides
an Open Gis Consortium (OGC) WPS compliant developer-friendly
framework to create and chain WPS Web services. ZOO is made of three
parts: ZOO Kernel, ZOO Services, ZOO API.

The ZOO Kernel is written in C language, but supports several common
programming languages in order to connect to numerous libraries and
above all to simplify the Web service end-developer's job.

A ZOO service is a link composed of a metadata file (.zcfg) and the
code for the corresponding implementation.  Services contain the
algorithms and functions, and can now be implemented in C/C++,
Fortran, Java, Python, PHP and JavaScript.

The ZOO API is a simple and concise JavaScript library designed to
call and chain the ZOO Services easily, and adds the capability to
define logic in the chaining of your ZOO Services.
