Research on a 3D Geological Disaster Monitoring Platform Based on REST Service
AbstractRepresentational state transfer (REST) is a resource-based service architectural style. It abstracts data and services as resources and accesses them through a unique Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). Compared with traditional Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) methods, REST is more concise. It takes full advantage of HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and has better scalability and extensibility. Based on REST services, this article integrates geographic information, real-time disaster monitoring data, and warning services in a three-dimensional (3D) digital Earth infrastructure and establishes a three-dimensional geological disaster monitoring GIS platform with good service compatibility and extensibility. The platform visually displays geographical and geological information and real-time monitoring data in a three-dimensional Earth, accesses warning model services to implement disaster warnings, and realizes comprehensive information management, monitoring, and warnings of multiple types of geological disasters. This can provide decision support for disaster prevention and relief and improve the informatization of geological disaster prevention and control. View Full-Text
