This unit is an overview of how GIS are being developed to run within the Internet and Worldwide Web, as well as within private intranets. Included is a discussion of strategies for developing GIS functionality within client-server networks. The overview discusses the rationale behind these strategies, but does not provide programming solutions. Nor does it address the details of designing a user interface for a Web GIS application.
