What is GIS? GIS stands for "geographic information system. GIS is a particular form of Information System applied to geographical data. GIS is a special kind of "information system, to manipulate, summarize, query, edit, visualize - generally, to work with information stored in computer databases. GIS can be seen as a system of hardware, software and procedures designed to support the input, management, analysis and presentation of spatially-referenced data for solving complex planning and management problems.

GIS functionality within a browser is often termed WebGIS

The Potential of WebGIS WebGIS will make it possible to make distributed geographic information available to a very large worldwide audience WebGIS will make it possible to add GIS functionality to a wide range of network-based applications in business, government, and education. Internet users will be able to access GIS applications from their browsers without purchasing proprietary GIS software WebGIS means software systems that are platform independent

WebGIS? for modern WebGIS architecture it is evident: client-server-technology platform independent server-sided data storage and processing power overall access via internet-browser no software or licence costs along with increasing use of open source access to GIS-functions from browsers

WebGIS with Google Maps

de Lange / Plass: WebGIS with Google Maps

Web-GIS? two aspects are still being discussed: free access to digital geodata extent of available GIS-functions within the browser

de Lange / Plass: WebGIS with Google Maps

Web-GIS discussion: extent of available GIS-functions within the browser requires: more than simple GIS-functions (e.g. zooming and browsing) input and editing geodata as well as analysis of geodata

Prototype: Web-GIS with GoogleMaps general: user administration and project management e.g. user registration, e.g. definition of a new project, managing existing projects basic concepts e.g. public geodata > GoogleMaps viewing tools e.g. zooming and panning presentation tools e.g. definition of symbols and colours
