Web GIS - 7.5 ECTS
Web GIS is essential for the emerging Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI). But for creating an SDI it is essential to use appropriate standards in the field. In this course you will learn about the main standards in Web GIS (from Open Geospatial Consortium, OGC) and how they can be used for e.g. creating a geoportal.
Web GIS is a broad topic that includes more than only technology. In this course you will e.g. study web cartography, including design rules for creating nice and useful maps on the web. You will also have a seminar about legal and ethical aspects of handling geographic information on the web.
The course ends with a project work where you create your own web map service.
