The geographical knowledge-informed digital gazetteer service (KIDGS) is a standard web service that provides unified XML-based access interfaces for various applications. In order to solve the problem of the raising data storage crabbed from millions of web pages and increasing query efficiency requirements for different levels of requests, we analyze the characteristics of cloud computing application and former architecture of KIDGS, and then design resources-oriented architecture of Cloud KIDGS in the RESTful style. Some key techniques in the process of MapReduce and design of RESTful services are also discussed. At last, a number of future development and their potentials for both commercial applications and scientific research are assessed.
