Internet GIS for the Water Industry
The Internet is the fastest growing and most efficient technology for distributing GIS data to the public. The Internet and the Web are simplifying how maps are created and maintained. The Internet is facilitating GIS data sharing between different organizations. Intranets are making it easy to share the GIS data between the different co-workers of the same organization. Until recently, spatial information was distributed via the Internet as static map images. Today, dynamic GIS web pages allow the public to interactively display and query GIS databases. Internet-based mapping applications are also changing the way that people use and manage geographic information for their water, wastewater, and stormwater systems. This chapter provides information for serving water resources data on the Internet using GIS. The major topics discussed in this chapter include: Internet GIS data, Internet GIS software, and Internet GIS case studies.
