With the development of web based technology and availability of spatial data infrastructure, the demand for accessing geospatial information over web has increased significantly. The data sets are being accessed by standard geospatial web services. However, for complex user queries involving multiple web services, it is required to discover those services and logically compose them to deliver the intended information. In this paper, a geospatial orchestration engine has been proposed for composition geospatial web services. A rule repository has been designed within the orchestration engine by considering the basic geospatial web services. A framework has been presented to develop a complex information service which can be achieved by chaining of already existing services. The efficacy of the framework has been demonstrated through a case study.
