Open Source Web Software Architectures for Geo-graphic Information Systems: A Systematic Mapping Study
Abstract. A geographic information system is an organized integration of hardware, software and geographic data designed to collect, store, manipulate, analyze and present geographically referenced information. In the development of applications web the software architecture are very important aspect when developing complex software efficiently. This research shows a mapping study which objective is know the state of the art of the software architectures of the geographic information systems for open source web environments. The results show that 74.19% of contributions are integrations of existing open source components, 16.13% add tools to the software architecture, and 9.68% integrate new methods to solve or improve algorithms that are part of the architecture. This indicates that further research is needed to experience new tools and/or new algorithms to solve or improve existing ones.
