Kort fortalt - GIS Geografiske Informations Systemer A geographic information system (GIS), also known as a geographical information system or geospatial information system, is any system for capturing, storing, analyzing and managing data and associated attributes which are spatially referenced to Earth. In the strictest sense, it is any information system capable of integrating, storing, editing, analyzing, sharing, and displaying geographically referenced information. In a more generic sense, GIS is a tool that allows users to create interactive queries (user created searches), analyze the spatial information, edit data, maps, and present the results of all these operations. Geographic information science is the science underlying the geographic concepts, applications and systems, taught in degree and GIS Certificate programs at many universities. Geographic information system technology can be used for scientific investigations, resource management, asset management, environmental impact assessment, urban planning, cartography, criminology, history, sales, marketing, and logistics. For example, GIS might allow emergency planners to easily calculate emergency response times in the event of a natural disaster, GIS might be used to find wetlands that need protection from pollution, or GIS can be used by a company to site a new business location to take advantage of a previously underserved market.

Job GIS Danmark Esprit Project 22084 - DISGIS Distributed Geographical Information Systems-Models Methods Tools and Frameworks Keywords: RTD Project Technical - distributed systems, OMG, CORBA, object orientation, interoperability, geographical information systems Sector - public administration , IT industry There is an emerging need for Distributed Geographical Information Systems. The possibility for realising such systems is being supported through emerging European-based standards, such as CEN/TC 287 Geographic Information and ISO-DIS 10746 Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (ODP), and new distributed object technology such as OMG CORBA and MS Networked COM/OLE, as enabling technologies for communication and information infrastructures. The objective of the project is to provide models, methods, tools and frameworks for the development of open distributed systems in general and open distributed Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in particular, and apply the methods, tools, and frameworks in two pilot cases, at two Enterprise GIS test sites, to demonstrate and validate the usability and viability of the DISGIS results. The business objective of the DISGIS project is to develop methods and tools that will decrease the cost of geodata management and distribution for European Enterprise GIS' and further increase the return of investments of geodata collection and establishment.The project is user-driven by the requirements in the area of GIS. The distributed system technology (DIS) partners incrementally transfer their technology to the geographic information system partners, and get requirements and user experiences back. The Norwegian Mapping Authority provides the premises in the area of European and international GIS standards and national and European geographic information infrastructure. GIS Danmark as a GIS provider that is responsible for the GIS desktop pilot, DIKAS as a GIS provider that is responsible for the GIS geodata server and services pilot. Taskon will provide ODP extensions and distributed object extensions to the OOram method and tool, and is also in particular responsible for the support of the ODP computational viewpoint support. Iona will provide extensions to CORBA-OLE interoperability and database-access for its Orbix distributed object technology, and is responsible for the ODP technology viewpoint support. INESC will provide its DASCo methodology for OOram extensions and is responsible for the ODP enterprise and engineering viewpoint support. SINTEF will provide its SIMOD methodology for OOram extensions in its role as DIS partner, and have responsibility for the incorporation of the CEN/TC 287-related EXPRESS information modelling language support in the ODP information viewpoint. In its role as a GIS partner, SINTEF will provide a framework for GIS ODP, based on the architecture of SINTEF's geographic information software interoperability platform The approach of the project is to apply the emerging Reference Model of Open Distributed Processing standard in combination with existing distributed object technology in the application domain of Distributed Geographic Information Systems. The project will focus on the total life-cycle of system development and delivers ODP compliant methods and tools that assist in the transformation from models to the implementation of working distributed systems. The results from DISGIS will be a validation and demonstration of Open Distributed Processing, based on Distributed Object Technology, applied to Geographical Information Systems. The two industrial distributed system partners, Taskon and Iona, will enhance and promote their life-cycle-oriented development models, methods, tools and frameworks for distributed object technology, enhanced with support for ODP and adjusted to meet the demands of distributed geographical information systems The two industrial geographic information system partners, GISD and DIKAS, will improve their market position for delivering both desktop-oriented and service oriented distributed geographical information systems, based on the results from the pilot systems and the use of distributed object technology models, methods, tools and frameworks. The mapping agency partner, NMA, will make use of the results for the development of a geographic information infrastructure, and promote the results in European and international standardisation. The two research partners, SINTEF and INESC, will use the results in order to increase their share of research and development projects in the area of distributed systems. In addition to the special exploitation strategy by each partner, the DISGIS consortium will seek to cooperate with each other in promoting the technology, in particular through European and international standard-organisations and user groups, such as CEN, ISO, OMG, OGIS and EUROGI.
