Evolution of open-source web GIS technology in integration with contemporary commercial solutions not only provides an immediate solution at every level of small and medium-sized industry but also attracted students/scholars from a diverse background (Computer Science, Information Technology, Electronics, Civil Engineering, Geography, Geomatics, Earth Sciences, Hydrology etc) who are interested in making their carrier in different government (ISRO, DRDO, NIC, State Disaster Mitigation Centers, State Remote Sensing Centers etc) and private organisations (ESRI, Hexagon, Wipro, TCS etc). Proposed publication Concepts and Application of Web GIS emphasises both the basic principles and practical application of Web GIS technology for estimating the developments and advances about the use of both the commercial and open source Web GIS technology. It starts with describing the evolution of Web GIS technology, depicts its important uses/application in integration with Remote Sensing & GIS, discuss the role of Web GIS technology in current Smart City Services and E-Governance solutions and guide new developer to establish a complete Web GIS solution for their desired problem. Overall the book is a comprehensive solution for academia, commercial and planning community, which fills a long felt gap in the field of Geoinformatics and Web GIS community. Chapters written by active researchers presented in a way accessible to a public beyond those who are specialists in the topic dealt. Beside these, it will prove as a valuable reference book for graduation as well as post-graduation students to cover the syllabi related to technologies for GIS and Web GIS.

Advances in Web-based GIS, Mapping Services and Applications is published as part of ISPRS WG IV/5 effort, and aims at presenting (1) Recent technological advancements, e.g., new developments under Web 2.0, map mashups, neogeography and the like; (2) Balanced theoretical discussions and technical implementations; (3) Commentary on the current stages of development; and (4) Prediction of developments over the next decade. Containing 21 contributions from 60 researchers active within ISPRS communities, most of them from academia and some from governments, the book covers a wide range of topics related to the state-of-the-art in web mapping/GIS and geographic information services. The volume is organized in five sections: 1. Analytical and Geospatial Services; 2. Performance; 3. Augmentation and LBS; 4. Collaboration and Decision Making, and 5. Open Standards for Geospatial Services. Supported by a considerable number of technical details and examples, an overall view of the current achievements and progress made in the field of web-based GIS and mapping services is given. The chapters reflect timely and future developments addressing: constant updating of related web and geospatial technologies as well as the revolution of web mapping caused by mainstream IT vendors such as Google, Yahoo and Microsoft; increased interest from industry on geo-spatial information technologies; and increasing demand from the general public for prompt and effective spatial information services. Advances in Web-based GIS, Mapping Services and Applications will appeal to academia and researchers, application specialists and developers, practitioners, and undergraduate and graduate students interested in distributed and web-based geoinformation systems and applications, geodatabases, and digital mapping.

The Internet needs no introduction, and its significance today can hardly be exaggerated. Today, more people are more connected technologically to one another than at any other time in human existence. For a large share of the world’s people, the Internet, text messaging, and various other forms of digital social media such as Facebook have become thoroughly woven into the routines and rhythms of daily life. The Internet has transformed how we seek information, communicate, entertain ourselves, find partners, and, increasingly, it shapes our notions of identity and community. The SAGE Encyclopedia of the Internet addresses the many related topics pertaining to cyberspace, email, the World Wide Web, and social media. Entries will range from popular topics such as Alibaba and YouTube to important current controversies such as Net neutrality and cyberterrorism. The goal of the encyclopedia is to provide the most comprehensive collection of authoritative entries on the Internet available, written in a style accessible to academic and non-academic audiences alike.

The only reference on the use of GIS and related technologies in terrain analysis In this landmark publication, reflecting the collaborative effort of thirteen research groups based in four countries, leading experts detail how GIS and related technologies, such as GPS and remote sensing, are now being used, with the aid of computer modeling, in terrain analysis. Continuing the innovative work of Professor Ian Moore, a visionary who saw terrain analysis as a robust method for modeling the large areas and complex spatial patterns of environmental systems, Terrain Analysis puts into action TAPES, or Terrain Analysis Programs for Environmental Sciences, Dr. Moore's innovative tool for terrain analysis. The book's contributors describe how TAPES are applied to specific geomorphologic problems, explain the algorithms used in current terrain analysis software, and examine the interpretation and use of terrain attributes in predictive models. With expert coverage of terrain analysis in the digital age, Terrain Analysis will be welcomed by ecologists, environmental engineers, geographers, and hydrologists who increasingly depend on GIS, GPS, and remote sensing.
