Internet GIS: Distributed Geographic Information Services for the Internet and Wireless Networks, authored by Dr. Zhong-Ren Peng and Dr. Ming-Hsiang Tsou. Published by Wiley. 2003. (PT)
Additional reading will be given during lectures.
The aim of the course is to teach students the fundamental theories and technologies for disseminating and processing geographic information by means of Internet and World Wide Web. For this, two specific distributed GIS architectures are studied: the Web-based and the mobile GIS architectures. It is demonstrated through case studies, laboratory exercises, and group projects that these architectures and related technologies allow 1) the creation of dynamic web maps and Internet-based geographic analysis, and 2) the provision of GIS functionality in the field through mobile GIS solutions and in a commercial setting in the form of Location-Based Services (LBSes). At the end of the course, students should know how to design and implement web maps, Internet-based geographic analysis, and mobile GIS and LBS solutions..
The course is composed of lectures, laboratory exercises, project and student presentations.
Students who did not pass the exams in these (or equivalent) courses may not register for this course.
Students can receive one bonus point for each lab that they finish (submit and get approved) before the deadline. Lab results (reports) can also be submitted after the deadline, but no bonus point is given for such labs. The sum of the bonus points is incorporated in the final grade of students which is based on the project work.
