WebAssembly - a new technology and its potential for geospatial application

Pirmin Kalberer

WebAssembly is a binary runtime format designed for efficiency, speed and safety. Version 1.0, standardized in a W3C Working Group, is now supported by all major browsers. It opens up a whole new way to create performant web applications and gives new possibilities to share (geospatial!) libraries between desktop and web applications.
