GIS Platform

GIS is evolving from the traditional desktop and server environments to being a distributed platform for web GIS, mobile apps, location services, spatial analytics, and embedded location knowledge. The core of this new “Web GIS Platform” is GIS expressed as “services” that are open and interoperable. Apps make this platform accessible from any device,supporting many different communities, with an agile architecture for sharing, mapping, analysis and visualization. Spatial content is drawn from cloud-based feature services, basemaps and imagery, combined dynamically with user-supplied information. The presentation will highlight the transformative power of the Web GIS Platform and illustrate how this has been implemented to support Smart cities and more efficient transport management, including at the Port of Rotterdam.
