Development of a Web System-based Geographic Information System Technologies to Mapping Electromagnetic Fields: First Developments


The purpose of this research work is to make decisions about the exposure levels of people to radiation, for which, the Web System based on GIS technology (DECOMAPS) was developed for mapping electromagnetic fields in the city of Riobamba. This system executes analysis, search, creation, automation of processes, and mapping activities of electromagnetic fields. The system was developed on an agile development methodology called SCRUM, which allows to create an optimal and interactive work environment between the product owner and the developers in order to create a quality system. Many technological tools were applied by the developer of this system. Once successfully completed, the system was subjected to tests of functionality and usability of the final product through quality metrics established by ISO 9126-3, where it was determined that the system is 93.64% functional, in addition to a 94.40% in usability. Concluding that the system is functional and can be implemented as a contribution in research to be developed in the future on the effects of electromagnetic fields on the human body.
