IIITM-K Launches Active Web GIS Using FOSS
The main objective of Active Web GIS is to make the dynamic geographical information available in a simplified, open Web interface.
The Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management-Kerala (IIITM-K) has rolled out Kerala's first Active Web Geographical Information System (GIS) service in public domain. The GIS has been developed using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) technology.
"The main objective of Active Web GIS is to make the dynamic geographical information available in a simplified, open Web interface," said K.R. Srivathsan, director, IIITM-K.
Logging onto www.edugrid.ac.inwebgis helps the visitor to access statewide dynamic weather information and one-week forecast that is updated every three hours. The site also provides thematic maps of Kerala and fly-through of 3D topography.
"Active Web GIS is very important when the location-specific information is dynamic and decisions have to be made on real-time basis. IIITM-K is actively developing Active Web GIS applications for e-governance applications such as community instrumentation for agrarian prosperity, community-driven cultural heritage portal and trade logistics for farm produce," Srivathsan said.
