In the Digital Forestry area, there is more and more requirements for spatial information connection and processing. From a prototype of geospatial computational grid (GCG), the relationship between the geospatial computational grid and OGC Interoperability protocols is proposed in this paper. A prototype of geospatial information grid is given in this paper. Digital Forestry Grid is proposed as a case of implementing of geospatial computational grid with OGC interoperability at the end of this paper.
