Geospatial analysis is an approach to applying statistical analysis and other analytic techniques to data which has a geographical or spatial aspect (Hemakumara, 2015). The geo-spatial analysis would employ software capable of rendering/visualizing maps, processing spatial data, and applying analytical methods to geospatial datasets (Geospatial, 2012). It provides many advantages to users, for instance, easy to recordkeeping of geographical changes, improvement of communications between organizations as the visualized format is easily understood by all, and easy of managing geographically with knowing what is and will be occurring.
During the 1st phase of the WG3 from 2016 to 2019, members of WG3 developed the JAVA-based Geo-Analytic libraries (hereafter "Processing Toolbox") for GeoServer WPS, uDig and GeoTools which can be downloaded at SourceForge. From the 2nd phase of WG3 in 2020, QGIS embeded GeoAnalytic functions are under development.

How to use WG3 library "Processing Toolbox" in your desktop?
1. Install uDig* for Windows 64bit >> Download
* uDig is a java-based open source SW for Desktop like QGIS or ArcMap.
2. Copy WG3 library "Processing Toolbox"* plugin under uDigplugins directory.
3. Click uDig >> Window >> Show View >> Others >> Processing >> Processing Toolbox.
1. Migration open geo-analytic functions in the WG3 library to QGIS.
2. Web-interactive open geo-analytic functions through integrating with WG1- GeoPortal
Demo. Web-interactice geo-analysis expected in the future.
