ARLAS Exploration Stack structure

The ARLAS Exploration Stack

The stack is composed of a user web interface (ARLAS-WUI), a REST Server (ARLAS Server) and it uses a search/aggregation engine (Elasticsearch).


A third party API Management can be interposed between ARLAS-WUI and ARLAS Server for managing user authentication, authorization and partitionning.

You can use ARLAS Exploration as:

  • a web application for exploring your spatio-temporal BigData (ARLAS-WUI)
  • the building bricks for developping your own web application (ARLAS WUI Components)
  • a service for delivering data and analytics to your own applications (ARLAS Server)


The ARLAS Stack includes ARLAS-WUI and ARLAS Server while the ARLAS WUI Components are the building bricks of ARLAS-WUI.
