We focus here on the access to multiple, distributed, heterogeneous and autonomous information sources storing geospatial data and we study alternatives to integrate them. Common solutions to data integration in the database area nowadays are the data warehouse approach and the wrapper/mediator approach. None of them is really satisfactory to handle a large range of geospatial applications. In this paper we present a novel hybrid approach to data integration based on the two popular paradigms. We believe that such architectures will be of major importance in the geospatial applications of the near future.
