WEB MAPPING

Web has changed every aspect of our life from our daily activities to our professional activities. Among these changes, GIS has been affected by the evolving web technology leading to Web or Internet GIS.
Today, majority of Internet users are using the web technology whether from desktop or mobile devices e.g. to finding hotels and addresses in an unfamiliar city using online web maps, to locate your location using
your phone GPS system or finding your path.
What is WEB MAPPING?
Web mapping is the process of using maps delivered by geographical information systems (GIS) on the internet through client- server architecture.
Web mapping usually involves a web browser to consume services. These services include serving interactive
maps, GIS data and location based services.
Objectives
Participants will learn how prepare and share geographic information so that it can effectively be used by colleagues, decision-makers, and non-GIS audiences.
This course will focus on Web Mapping Technology, its architecture, application and tools.
The goal of this training course is to introduce users to the concept of  web mapping.

Audience
The expected participants are GIS professionals, cartographers or other
technical personnel who have background in computer applications
and the internet.
