One indicator of this trend is that most of the GIS software providers now offer web-enabling tools allowing their GIS software to be hosted in the cloud. With cloud-based GIS solutions, users and a broad variety of other systems can easily access real-time geographic data anytime, anywhere for analysis and visualisation. “With everything heading toward the Cloud – from documents, images, contacts, calendars, presentations, databases, and even advanced...

WebGIS Performance Tests

Distributed and Centralised Work Models
A WebGIS is usually constructed as a multi-tier architecture basically consisting of the client side, the server side and the database component. From the client side, users send queries or requests to the server via (wireless) internet. Next, the server communicates with the database, where the requested information is compiled by the database server. Finally, the result is sent to the client. With the rapid growth of WebGIS, a number of work models have been developed to increase efficiency and performance. While developing the Boston Water and Sewer WebGIS application in 2010, the authors tested the performance of two models:... (read more)
