HTML5 Canvas: An Open Standard for High Performing GIS Map Visualization in Web Browsers - Directions Magazine | Spatial Technology | Scoop.it
The evolution of GIS on the Web has, until recently, been limited by traditional Web mapping technologies. The increase in GIS requirements in the Web and mobile world has necessitated the development of a new breed of map engine. This article, by Dino Ravnić, the co-founder and CEO of GIS Cloud, Ltd., provides an overview of existing mapping technologies and the reasons why he decided to build a unique vector mapping engine in an effort to give the Web a full featured GIS.

Linked Data: A Geographic Perspective - Free eBook Share

Linked Data: A Geographic Perspective - Free eBook Share | Spatial Technology | Scoop.it
eBook Free Download: Linked Data: A Geographic Perspective | PDF, EPUB | ISBN: 1439869952 | 2013-01-28 | English | PutLocker

 

Geographic Information has an important role to play in linking and combining datasets through shared location, but the potential is still far from fully realized because the data is not well organized and the technology to aid this process has not been available. Developments in the Semantic Web and Linked Data, however, are making it possible to integrate data based on GeographicInformation in a way that is more accessible to users. Drawing on the industry experience of a geographer and a computer scientist, Linked Data: A Geographic Perspective is a practical guide to implementing Geographic Information as Linked Data.
