Track: New Technology and Technology Integration
Author(s): Frank Schreiner, Kevin McNinch, Dave Bouwman
As access to the Internet is more prevalent in all forms of business, the storage and dissemination of similar data for noncontiguous geographic areas is becoming an issue that most government agencies and large private businesses are wrestling with. Recent developments in Web-based technology using the Internet are creating opportunities to have spatial data held at a local site and also be part of a large consistent delivery framework for external resource management and analysis tools.
Pacific Meridian Resources has designed and delivered projects that are at the heart of these Spatial Data Repository (DER) initiatives. This initiative affords integrated spatial query and mapping capabilities with state-of-the-art database management utilizing ArcSDE and ArcIMS technologies. One such project, the DER, is a networked repository of natural resource data. The data comes from a variety of sources and is generally in a state of flux, as new data sets are collected and existing data is updated. A multitude of participants, users, software, hardware, locations and needs are the norm. The DER provides a central framework for data collection, archiving and access efforts. This paper will review the requirements and opportunities for developing an Internet-based DER that provides storage and mapping capabilities. In particular, this paper will review the issues involved in integrating ArcIMS and ColdFusion/Active Server Pages as application development platforms, with Oracle or SQL 7.0 and ArcSDE for database development.
