Our Web-GIS solutions show geodata in an easy to use format
Web GIS (Geographic-Information-Services) are applications whose core functions rely on web services (geo services) specialized for displaying and providing geo data. A specialized web application in geodata or a geobrowser can be used as a graphical user interface.
A typical desktop GIS has all GIS functionality and data on a client machine. With modern free Web GIS architectures with geoservices such as deegree, GeoServer or the UMN MapServer in connection with a web browser as a client, the functionality of the client can nearly do the same – visualization to easy GIS functions while the main workload lies with one or more servers. The only thing a user needs to have is a webbrowser.
Web GIS example: Energiemosaik
The Energy Mosaic Austria shows the energy consumption and the associated greenhouse gas emissions of all Austrian cities and communities in detail.
