Web GIS is a pattern, or architectural approach, for implementing a modern GIS. It’s powered by web services—standard services that deliver data and capabilities, and connect components. It is s a type of distributed information system, comprising at least a server and a client, where the server is a GIS server and the client is a web browser, desktop application, or mobile application.

Why it is useful?

Web GIS applications are used to make your services available to others within and outside your organization. You will design and create these web GIS applications using a wide variety of resources, and your end users will use these applications to address any number of questions, missions, and problems. Some advantages are as follows:

  • A global reach
  • A large number of users
  • Better cross-platform capability (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, and so on)
  • Low cost as averaged by the number of users (vast majority of Internet content is free of charge to end users)
  • Easy to use (including public users who may know nothing about GIS)
  • Unified updates (one update works for all clients)
  • Cloud hosting possible for publishing maps, data and services on the internet
  • Diverse applications

Key Elements

  • The server has a URL so that clients can find it on the web.
  • The client relies on HTTP specifications to send requests to the server.
  • The server performs the requested GIS operations and sends responses to the client via HTTP.
  • The format of the response sent to the client can be in many formats, such as HTML, binary image, XML (Extensible Markup Language), or JSON (JavaScript Object Notation).
