Web GIS is a vital part of modern mapping. Since it is based on an architecture that is very different from the traditional client-server model, some basic concepts need to be understood to improve the user experience and to better understand the platform’s capabilities. This webinar will cover the basics of Web GIS, such as the geo-information model, the clients, and the web maps and apps, as well as entity and mapping services. Special attention will be placed on the REST API, the driving force behind Web GIS that can help you automate your organization’s GIS processes. Finally, this three-way communication among clients, services and information products will be explored for a complete understanding of the functionalities of Web GIS.
