In the last years, the distribution of spatial and non-spatial data on the internet plays a crucial role in national development. It facilitates communication between administration, decision-makers and citizens for urban management. In order to encourage the sharing and disseminating of data, the present study aims to develop and implement WebGIS framework for urban management, which offer possibilities to access the right data in the right time to make the right decisions. In this paper web based WebGIS architecture is described and implemented using open source tools such as Geoserver, Tomcat apache and OpenLayers. The work also utilized Web client technologies such as HyperText Markup Language (HTML) for providing the flexibility and more interactivity. An area of Batna city in eastern of Algeria has been chosen. The study demonstrates that web GIS in combination with an urban geographic information system (GIS) is very useful and vital tools for visualizing and improving the decision-making processes.

Abstract


In the last years, the distribution of spatial and non-spatial data on the internet plays a crucial role in national development. It facilitates communication between administration, decision-makers and citizens for urban management. In order to encourage the sharing and disseminating of data, the present study aims to develop and implement WebGIS framework for urban management, which offer possibilities to access the right data in the right time to make the right decisions. In this paper web based WebGIS architecture is described and implemented using open source tools such as Geoserver, Tomcat apache and OpenLayers. The work also utilized Web client technologies such as HyperText Markup Language (HTML) for providing the flexibility and more interactivity. An area of Batna city in eastern of Algeria has been chosen. The study demonstrates that web GIS in combination with an urban geographic information system (GIS) is very useful and vital tools for visualizing and improving the decision-making processes.
