Territorial Information Systems


Development of a server tool focusing on
atlas mapping and facilitating creating and
viewing complex maps in the distributed
territorial information systems

PURPOSE OF THE WORK


WORK AREA


Atlas mapping, Territorial Information Systems,
Applied
GIS Services,


Atlas Server.



Geographic information technologies in the distributed
systems
.



An architecture of distributed GIS applications
.


KEY CONCEPTS

TASKS OF THE WORK


1.

Defining specific functionality of geographic information
technologies used in

the territorial information systems
.


2.
Analyzing existing technologies providing mapping
functionality in the territorial information systems
.


3.
Development of Applied GIS Services for Atlas mapping
.


4.

Designing an architecture of the Atlas Server
.


5.
Developing the
Atlas Server


and creating examples of
territorial information systems on its base
.


Geographic Information System
is a common
computer
technology designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate,
analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced
information independently of the subject area.


Territorial Information System

(TIS)

is an integrated subject

dependent computer system
, based on the object model of the
subject area and presenting
subject

dependent methods of
presentation
,

input
, processing , analysis and output
of information
,
including
geographically referenced

information
.

Geographic information System

Territorial Information Systems

KEY PROPERTIES OF TIS

1.
TIS integrates various computer technologies, including
geo
-
information technologies
.



2.
TIS is designed for a non
-
professional user in the field
of GIS and mapping
.



3.
TIS provides mapping interface of higher level which is
a thematic atlas level and not the level of separate
cartographic layers or maps
.


MOST COMMON TASKS OF TIS:


displaying current state of the area and all spatially
distributed objects and systems of interest
;



location search
;






data aggregation on the location and spatial distribution
criteria

MORE COMPLICATED TASKS OF TIS:


monitoring changes of the territory or spatially distributed
systems
;



calculating and displaying continuous attributes of the
territory
;




optimal routes search
;



assessing distribution of objects of interest;



zoning a territory on the base of various criteria
.



MAPPING SERVICES HIERACHY

A map is created in the client side

from the layers transferred from

GIS Server

A map is created in a desktop GIS and
is transferred to the client from
Application server

A map is created with an applied GIS
service provided by Application Server

THEMATIC ATLAS MODEL

An applied Atlas

service of the territorial
information system

is a program component
,
providing functionality of a

thematic atlas

and not
including

map presentation.

APPLIED ATLAS
-
SERVICE

Traditional architecture of a distributed GIS
-
application

An architecture of

GIS
-
application

based on Atlas Server


includes Atlas Services instead of base GIS Services



consists of Atlas Services, Starting Atlas Services
Component and Component Forming Map Display



allows connecting new Atlas Services (openness of
Atlas Server )

OUTPUTS


can be applied for a quick development of territorial

information systems


provides a cartographic service of atlas level



provides extensibility and scalability of the created
system


supports a development of GIS applications on the base
of DCOM and WEB protocols


provides independence from base GIS constructors and
visualization means
