This paper introduces a distributed image processing system based on service oriented architecture (SOA). SOA offers considerable flexibility in aligning IT functions and business processes and goals. Each phase in image processing system is viewed as a Web service operated on the Internet. The Web service provides various functions of pre-processing, noise removal, segmentation and feature extraction. Image processing defines algorithms to process 2D & 3D digital images for meaningful interpretation of image content. Each algorithm is implemented as a Web service. Set of algorithms are implemented for each phase and the phases of image processing are linked dynamically. Hence, depending on user's requirement the Web services are dynamically linked using event condition action [ECA] paradigm. We proposed light reference architecture for exposing the image processing system as a Web service on a public network by granting external consumers to access internal services.
