Adaptive proxy map server for efficient vector spatial data rendering

Abstract. The rapid transmission of vector map data over the Internet is becoming a bottleneck of spatial data delivery and visualization in web-based environment because of increasing data amount and limited network bandwidth. In order to improve both the transmission and rendering performances of vector spatial data over the Internet, we propose a proxy map … Read more Adaptive proxy map server for efficient vector spatial data rendering

Developing a Web Service-Compatible Map Server for Geophysical Applications

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) defines a number of standards (both for data models and for online services) that have been widely adopted in the Geographical Information System (GIS) community. In this paper we will describe our group’s efforts to implement GIS services according to OGC standard specifications in accordance with the Web Services approach. … Read more Developing a Web Service-Compatible Map Server for Geophysical Applications
