Automatic generation of self contained WebGIS sites using Open Source GIS
In the last couple of decades the amount of digital geospatial data have grown rapidly as a result of the number of satellites and the number of global positioning systems (GPS). To assist in the analysis and visualization of this new data, several Geographic information systems (GIS) as well as WebGIS sites have been developed. A good number of these applications are used to visualize scientific data on the Internet, like oceanographic, weather or climate data. These web sites share common features like being able to download data, obtain information from specific geospatial locations or overlap different layers into one map.
