Web mapping is the process of designing, implementing, generating and delivering maps on the World Wide Web. This module essentially covers two areas (i) a review basic web development and (ii) the aspects of web development specific to GIS. We also look at the architecture and implementation of the web infrastructure to support Web Mapping such as Geoserver, PostGIS and associated technologies.
This page provides access to notes and other material that we'll be using in class. The module content is built around the idea of "topics". These correspond roughly but not exactly to weeks. In other words, we may not finish a topic in any given week or we may cover more than one topic in any given week.
This list will be expanded as the semester progresses.
