We want to process large area Digital Elevation Model (greater than 2 million square kilometer SRTM 3 DEM with ~90 meter pixel size), we are thinking to use one of DEM processing software (WMS or RiverTools) and we would like to know the capability of WMS to process large DEMs. Also I have some related questions for example:
Does WMS support 64-bit operating systems (i.e. Microsoft Windows XP or vista)?
Do you think using 64-bit operating system will be useful for us if we want to use WMS?
Does WMS support some advanced techniques like multi-threading, multi-tasking, multi-core processors, and multi processors?
Do you think these techniques helpful for us if we want to run WMS with large DEMs?
