GO Publisher Agent is a bulk file publishing system, capable of delivering large volumes (gigabytes) of XML/GML data to large numbers of data consumers. Designed to integrate into a data ordering system, GO Publisher Agent has a comprehensive command line and SQL interface to support numerous commonly used supply patterns.


GO Publisher Agent currently supports three order types: complete database, geographic selection and free-form query. If the resulting order is too large to supply as a single file, the order can be divided up into multiple parts – ‘chunks’. GO Publisher Agent currently supports geographic chunking, file size chunking and property chunking all of which can be delivered compressed or uncompressed.
