Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Web has revealed the immense value and broad applicability of GIS, set the bar for today’s user expectations, and introduced flexible architectures for use with modern IT infrastructure. From basic architecture to new frontiers, Web GIS: Principles and Applications presents a thorough overview of the origins and developments in this emerging platform. New Web technologies addressed include: ArcGIS Server, REST services, JavaScript API/Flex API, and ArcGIS Mobile. This book offers a balance of principles, concepts, and techniques to provide you with an understanding of how Web GIS can revolutionize the way your GIS functions.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook and reference on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the Internet presents a conceptual framework for the study of the integration of modern web services and devices with the principles of GIS. This volume explores the basics of GIS over the web, technical specifications for various types of applications, mobile GIS, e-business and e-government applications and further looks ahead at cutting edge research and future trends in Web GIS. Deliberately avoiding pinning their analysis to any specific software application or framework, the work examines universal principles in Web GIS and suggests lab work to accompany the text that can be molded to fit whichever applications are at hand. Fu is lead developer with Esri, a market leading GIS software company and Sun is a professor at the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
