Connecting People with Data on a Portal

Web GIS is a type of distributed information system, comprising at least one server and a client, where the server is a GIS server and the client is a web browser, desktop application, or a mobile application. In its simplest form, web GIS can be defined as any GIS that uses web technology to communicate between a server and a client.

By utilising the Internet to access information over the web without regard to how far apart the server and client might be from each other, web GIS enables distinct advantages over traditional desktop GIS, including the following:

  • Low cost considering by the large number of users
  • Easy to use and a flat learning curve
  • Single source of truth with near real time updates
  • Diverse applications in every field of human life
