The server-side, service-oriented rendering of massive 3D geovirtual environments (3DGeoVEs) has the potential to enable users with lightweight clients to access high quality, image-based visual representations of the environments without having to download massive amounts of geodata. Image post-processing (IPP) is a well-known concept that allows for decoupling the process of generating an image from applying enhancement processes to already generated images. Moreover, several visual effects are implemented most efficiently and effectively as image post-processes. However, so far no proposals exist for providing image post-processing of 2D images of projective views of visual representations of 3DGeoVE in a SOA and based on standards. In this paper, we investigate how IPP functionality and the functionality of styling of visual representations of 3DGeoVE based on IPP can be provided in a SOA based on standards. First, we introduce the concepts of IPP and styling. Then, we present an analysis of different characteristics of styling and IPP and design dimensions relevant when building a system for styling and IPP. From the analysis, we derive a set of requirements for a concept and system providing IPP and styling functionality based on IPP. We present a preliminary concept for a system meeting the identified requirements and report on initial implementation and evaluation results.
