UniBwMap

UniBwMap

UniBwMap will be a modular web map server supporting Open GIS Consortium specifications. It is designed to dynamically integrate geospatial data from different sources and deliver this map to desktop and handheld computers.

Standards

UniBwMap will be built on specifications from the Open GIS Consortium in order to interoperate with other OGC compliant severs (for example a map could be generated from data collected from several WFS/WCS). The implementation will also support the Styled Layer Description from OGC that allows users to control the visual portrayal of the data with which they work.

Architecture

The modular architecture will allow the system to either act as a general web map server taking data from WFS/WCS and delivering content to clients or as a scalable client. The client could range from a thin software that only displays graphics to a heavy weight client that connects directly to WFS/WCS and internally renders data, allowing fast zooming operations and other operations that can only be performed on vector data (i.e. measuring distances).

Implementation

The system will be entirely developed in Java. This would allow it to run on various devices and operating systems and take advantages from other Java 2 features such as dynamically loading classes. The implementation should result in a number of well-documented, reusable modules. Furthermore, the system would be based on as many as possible third party, open-source components (i.e. SVG parsers & generators, GML libraries, etc).
