Geoprocessing services are currently a hot topic in research and industry for enabling the dynamic generation of web-based geoinformation in Spatial Data Infrastructures. An overview and an in-depth analysis of this new approach are missing yet. However, they are necessary to support upcoming projects and to streamline research towards fully web-based geoinformation. Thus, this paper provides a detailed overview about recent publications and projects concerning geoprocessing services. Research commonalities among these works are extracted. Based on this analysis, a research agenda for geoprocessing services is formulated and discussed. The research agenda identifies three major research issues, which are promising for enabling web-based geoinformation: Semantic descriptions of geoprocessing services, orchestration of geoprocessing services and approaches for performance enhancements.
