This research studies the use of internet as a
means to distribute geographic information which resides on spatial databases. The
research also develops a prototype system that will work as an On-line GIS.
The prototypical on-line GIS is a three-tier
client/server system; WWW-client, Web server and GIS server. The research focuses on
studying the mechanism to connect the Web server to GIS server. The mechanism is
crucial in bringing a user's queries to the database and in carrying the results back to
The developed prototype, though still lacks many
capabilities, demonstrates the possibility of on-line GIS. Further comparative study
needs to be conducted to find the appropriate method to enhance the system's capabilities.
