1 gvsig: Open Source for handling Geospatial Information Mario Carrera Rodríguez

2 Generalitat Valenciana (GV) is the government of the Valencian Community (Castellón, Valencia, Alicante) Conselleria de Infraestructuras y Transporte (CIT) or Regional Government of Infrastructures and Transport, is the maximum authority in the Generalitat Valenciana for Public Works, Transport, Architecture, Ports and Coasts, and Energy.

3 Project Origin The administrations need computer applications to develop their functions Office automation Databases Signing registration Management of files, etc.

4 Project Origin There are two options to obtain computer applications: Proprietary Software Open Source Software

5 Project Origin Proprietary Software (I) High cost of license and maintenance. Tendency to skimp on installations. Promotion of illegal software. License Annual maintenance Version updates

6 Project Origin Proprietary Software (II) Technological dependence of the provider. The provider choose the new functionalities and when they will be available.

7 Project Origin Proprietary Software (III) Bad use/quality relationship. You pay for the product. Bad use of the INVESTMENT.

8 Project Origin Open Source Software (I) There isn't a cost for the license. Installation in an unlimited number of computers.

9 Project Origin Open Source Software (II) Technological independence Freedom to give solutions to our problems Capacity to develop new functionalities

10 Project Origin Open Source Software (III) Implemented functionalities = required functionalities You pay for service Total use of the INVESTMENT

11 Project Origin Open Source Software: The freedoms freedoms Four freedoms of the Open Source Software: To run the program, for any purpose. run To study how the program has been built, and adapt it to your needs (access to the source code is a precondition for this). To redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor. redistribute To improve the program, and release your improvements (and modified versions in general) to the public. Objective: Maximize the rights of the client (who has the : product).

12 Project Origin Open Source Software: The licenses Software license = Legal instrument that governs the usage or redistribution of copyright protected software. It differentiates the Open Source Software from the other kinds of software. GNU/GPL License: It guarantees that the improvements : and redistributions will be always free.

13 Project Origin Why Open Source Software Why Open Source Software? Technological independence. Optimization of the investment. Quality industrial structure.

14 Project Origin gvpontis: migration of IT to free software solutions gvpontis Conselleria de Infraestructuras y Transporte Optimization of the I. S. Technological independence Migration to information systems under LINUX (end of 2002) Areas of action: Office Suites Operating systems and communications databases Corporate systems within Conselleria GIS y CAD Development of GIS client: gvsig Sustainable development

42 Spatial Data Infrastructures Actual situation Old model (corporate GIS) Old model A lot of map servers. Every server is optimized for its users using its software... at the expense of possible users with another software, another brand of GIS, another formats of data. Creation of multiuser GIS information islands.

43 Spatial Data Infrastructures

44 Spatial Data Infrastructures New model Spatial Data Infrastructures (distributed GIS): Spatial Data Infrastructures Objective: Making easy the access to the G. I. The system is the network (internet/intranet). Communication through standars (web services). Extended client server model. Decentralized network of servers. Evolution: Evolution Desktop GIS client > Desktop GIS SDI client

45 Spatial Data Infrastructures SDI projects GSDI: Global Spatial Data Infrastructure. GSDI Promote the international collaboration to create SDI Antecedents: Clinton Clinton Order (EEUU, 1994) Order Building of a National Spatial Data Infrastructures (NSDI) European Union: INSPIRE (2004) INSPIRE INfrastructure for SPatial InfoRmation in Europe. Laws to guide the creation of SDI for every country.

46 SDI Arquitecture (with gvsig as a client) User applications Access to transformed data, pictures, maps, reports, multi media content Metadata search and retrieval for data and services Catalogs Clients gvsig Service chaining: search, display, access, e commerce,. Middleware Geo processing Direct and catalog Servicesdata Metadata update access Other data Content Repositories e.g., administrative, statistical, env. reporting Coverages Features Distributed Geographic reference data Servers

47 SDI components Data: Data: reference system, transport network, pollution, vegetation, traffic, etc. Metadata: datas that describe another datas. Services: offer a group of funcionalities that are useful and interesting for a community of users.

48 SDI services Services The user isn't interested on the download of the data, but obtaining the needed answers directly, that are offered by a service. The SDI services offer functionalities accessible on line through a simple navigator or browser: Web Map Service (WMS) Web Feature Service (WFS) Web Coverage Service (WCS) Nomenclator Service (Gazetteer) Catalog Service (CSW) Catalog Service (CSW)

49 Open Geospatial Consortium Protocols (OGC): Visualization and query of G.I.: Web Map Service (WMS) Advanced access to raster data: Web Coverage Service (WCS) Advanced access to vectorial data: Web Feature Service (WFS) Bases de Datos Geoespaciales (JDBC) Access to metadata catalogs: Web Catalog Service (WCatS) Localization by place name: Nomenclator Service

50 SDI services WFS WCS WMS Terrain server

51 SDI services Outline

52 SDI services Visualization and query of G.I. Web Map Service (WMS) Simple and fast visualization of vectorial and raster data. Allows to handle several layers from one or more servers. Allows transparency (by the administrator of the server). Allows simple information. Allows legend set up (using SLD => Styled Layer Descriptor) (by the administrator of the server).

53 SDI services WMS (Web Map Service)

54 SDI services WMS (Web Map Service)

55 SDI services Advanced access to raster data Web Coverage Service (WCS) Full access to attributes of each pixel. Work with data as it were local. Spatial Analysis. Etc.

56 SDI services WCS (Web Coverage Service)

57 SDI services Advanced access to vectorial data Web Feature Service (WFS) Geoespatial Database (JDBC) Full access to attributes. Use of same legend as for local layers. Work with data as it were local. Advanced queries. Spatial Analysis. Etc.

58 SDI services WFS (Web Feature Service)

59 SDI services Geoespatial Database (JDBC)

60 SDI services Access to metadata catalogs Web Catalog Service (WCatS) Fundamental part of SDI. Allows discovering G.I. Query by Theme, scale, location, etc. You get layers list found by catalog.

61 SDI services Web Catalog Service

62 SDI services Localization by place name: Nomenclator Service Georeferenced place names list. Place names index in an atlas: Place name Page Grid Nomenclator: Place name Geographic coordinates

63 SDI services Localization by place name

64 Conclusions Great power and versatility of the web services. Great added value given by a Desktop GIS client like gvsig. Easy extension and improvement of the application. The community is growing.
