Basic concepts: using the OGC standards
The main idea behind the MapMint solution is the massive usage of OGC Web Services and making all processing in the solution available as WPS services using the ZOO-Project OpenSource software.
Main software components
MapMint is using numerous OSGeo softwares and bring them all together in a complete Web-GIS platform by using the WPS to make them understandable and usable to and from each other.
