CartoService: A Web Service Framework for Quality On-Demand Geovisualisation

  1. 1. CartoService – A Web Service Framework for Quality On-Demand Geovisualisation<br />Rita Engemaier & HartmutAsche<br />Geoinformation Research GroupGeography Department, University of Potsdam<br />
  2. 2. Outline <br />Introduction & Objectives<br />Cartographic modelling process<br />CartoService approach<br />Conclusion<br />
  3. 3. 1 Introduction<br />
  4. 4. 1 Introduction Background<br />background<br />steady increase in spatial data, tool availability & accessibility data bases, analysis & processing tools (GIS)<br />based on the fundament of rapid development of information & communication technology (ICT)SOA, Web-GIS, crowd sourcing, cloud & GRID computation<br />visible effects<br />grown demand for mapping applications in and outside the internetGoogleMaps|Earth, GeoCaching, GeoTagging, car navigation ... <br />changing roles in the provider-user relation & data aquisitionOpenStreetMap, Free & Open Source (Web) GIS & processing tools<br />from monolithic software to interoperable software components and services<br />
  5. 5. 1 Introduction Web-based Geovisualisation & Maps<br />the digital environment of recent ICT extends the traditional static 2D map by multidimensional and multivariate representations (views|displays)<br />traditionally the communication of geospatial information is/was the domain of cartography and maps<br />BUT: only a small amount of the long-term proven cartographic methods and expertise is yet utilised or at least visible in internet maps and mapping applications<br />GeoVis<br />Dynamic multidimensional representations (views)<br />DB<br />3D<br />4D<br />VR<br />PCP<br />...<br />Static2D<br />
  6. 6. 1 Introduction Motivation & Objectives<br />in comparison to traditional derived thematic maps (2D-static) follow aspects can be recognised<br />from the number of 10 to 12 traditional, static map types only a few are typically used for web-based representations<br />the cartographic quality (including effectiveness & expressiveness) of web-maps is often poor<br />the lack of graphical quality cannot be bypassed by interaction or dynamic representation<br />Objectives<br />provide cartographic visualisation expertise to web-maps|users<br />integrate cartographic modelling quality in web-mapping systems<br />

  9. 9. 2 Cartographic Modelling Processing functions<br />“The strength of maps is their ability to select from reality and abstract the selection via a well designed symbolization. This results in maps that are characterized by their relative emptiness, by visual hierarchy and have a particular appealing style.”(ICA, 2009. Research Agenda)<br />essential functionsofthemapdesign process<br />Buttenfield and Mark (1991)<br />

  17. 17. 4 Conclusion<br />web mapping is not just distributing and viewing data<br />mechanisms are needed to apply same cartographic quality standards to web maps (geovisualisations) as to traditional 2D-maps<br />applying SOA principles (web services) to web-based cartographic visualisation is a promising concept to improve cartographic quality of web-maps <br />components and key processes of cartographic modelling are available and applicable (some already as web-services)<br />providing cartographic expertise by an interoperable web-service offers possibilities not just for private users, but also to SDIs to improve the communication quality of their web-maps and to direct (transactive) evaluation of these visualisations<br />
