Geoinfotech Web Mapping Applications

Geoinfotech Web Mapping Applications


This is an interactive phase that includes a web browser on the client’s end and possibly programs capable of creating interaction.

At Geoinfotech web mapping applications are interactive user-friendly maps. It can be seen in our maps how map data layers or features are viewed, the extent to which it can be zoomed based on user preference, either for inspection purposes, editing of existing contents, or updating content, the list is endless.

Nevertheless with the evolution of web mapping, its usability, service benefits, quality, and innovation challenges are still developing.

Essential features in Web Mapping

  • Clients can easily find URL on the web from a server.
  • Clients’ ability to send requests to the server solely depends on the HTTP specifications.
  • 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).


Geoinfotech Web Map enables users to accomplish the following:

  1. In selecting a base map and zooming into the geographic area of interest.
  2. To add data layers, specify how each will be symbolized and displayed.
  3. Create pop-ups that enable users to explore the clicked-on features.
  4. Save your map, then document it with an eye-catching thumbnail, a good description, and a thoughtful name. Every map, especially a map that you will share, needs a good item description, thumbnail, and name.
  5. Share your map by using it to configure a whole range of apps.


Benefits of viewing our web maps include:

  • It basically requires only a web-accessible device
  • Formal knowledge of GIS isn’t required
  • Our data and maps are always accessible at any given time and across the world
  • Geoinfotech Web maps also support hyperlinking to other information on the web


The components necessary to build your web mapping site includes:

  • A reliable computer
  • An internet connection
  • A webserver
  • A mapping data
  • A web mapping server
  • Mapping metadata


The thought that comes to the mind of our cartographers, during web map creation has to be its purpose. Whether they are usable or applicable for a continuum from exploratory and highly interactive to thematic and less interactive or static, the constraints of desktop and/or mobile web contexts, and accessibility for disabled, elderly, and poorly connected users.

Introduction to WebMapping.

Introduction to WebMapping.

Web mapping Gis

Web mapping or online mapping is the process of using the maps delivered by geographic information systems (GIS) on the Internet, more specifically in the World Wide Web (www). Web GIS as a fully-fledged GIS that takes advantage of web technology for communicating among its components (data, functionality, and interface).

A web map or online map is both served and consumed, thus web mapping is more than just web cartography. Web GIS uses web maps, and end-users who are web mapping are gaining analytical capabilities.

Web mapping has brought many geographical datasets, including free ones generated by OpenStreetMap and proprietary datasets owned by HERE, Google, Tencent, TomTom, and others Web maps are online maps created with ArcGIS that provide a way to work and interact with geographic content organized as layers.

Each map contains a reference base map along with a set of additional data layers, plus tools that work on these layers. Web maps are windows into a wealth of information.

Almost every mobile phone now has location services and every event and object on the earth has a location. The use of this geospatial location data has expanded rapidly, thanks to the development of the Internet.

Huge volumes of geospatial data are available and daily being captured online, and are used in web applications and maps for viewing, analysis, modelling and simulation. “Web mapping is the process of using maps delivered by geographical information systems (GIS).

Three basic elements are implied in web mapping: geodata/geoinformation and their visualization (maps), geospatial software and the World Wide Web, or the Web (web hereafter).

Depending on the emphasis put on maps or on the technology and the processing of geodata to produce maps, people tend to consider the concept of web mapping as different from that of Web GIS (even if they admit that the boundary is blurry) or, on the other hand, they use the two terms as synonyms.

The concept of web mapping is more general and focuses on providing and supporting mapping functions at different levels of complexity, for applications and users.
