SVG provides a foundation for publishing vector maps over the Internet. SVG web maps can have very flexible database linkage and a full range of customization, while still remaining accessible to generic browsers over the Internet. The purpose of this case study is to look at the details of a typical web mapping application using SVG as the presentation of both map data and database query results. Along the way we will have a chance to look at several approaches to manipulating SVG templates on the server.
A number of technologies will be used in this example including several java centric server side techniques:
This presentation is aimed at beginner or intermediate SVG/Java developers interested in applying this technology to Web mapping.
