GeoMixer Web-GIS: Theory and Practical Experience
As part of the course, students will gain the skills to create and design their own mapping projects on the Internet, as well as master the algorithms for publishing geodata on the Web-cartographic portal.The course is based on the Scanex Web GeoMixer® software package.
A brief theoretical course will familiarise students with the contemporary forms of storage of spatial data on the Internet, web-based geographic information systems and the solutions based on them, as well as with the GeoMixer platform capabilities intended for the design of web-GIS.
- Web-GIS: terms and definitions, advantages over the GIS desktop;
- Types of web-based geographic information solutions: interactive maps, geo-portals and services, as well as a full-featured GIS;
- Forms of presenting spatial data in the web-GIS;
- Overview of modern technological platforms for the design of web-GIS;
- GeoMixer: functionality overview;
- Corporate solutions and GeoMixerCloud;
- Case studies based on the GeoMixer platform.
As part of the practical session, participants will learn the basic skills for developing and editing web-GIS projects on the GeoMixer platform based on the training data set.
