Nowadays, GIS software is entering a new era of Grid GIS. Represented by Grid GIS, the next generation GIS has become the frontline and hot issue in both the academic community and the industrial sector. However, implementing Grid GIS is confronted with a great deal of challenges, among which Grid-based geospatial computational task processing is the key issue. This paper proposes a new conceptual framework for Grid-based geospatial computational task processing, i.e., a mechanism that efficiently processes the Grid-based geospatial computational task submitted by users and obtains reliable results so as to improve the geospatial information sharing and cooperative computation capability. Design issues for the proposed framework are discussed, and then some concluding remarks are presented.
