We designed and implemented an integration framework of enterprise business information and multi-source heterogeneous geospatial information based on composition of semantic geospatial Web service. It can integrate business information and geospatial information seamlessly and effectively in enterprise workflow. An example of tobacco planting spatial analysis this framework was described to verify the practicability and feasibility of this framework.
