In order to improve accessibility of a user to up-to-date geo-spatial data (‘feature data’) or information (‘processed data’ or ‘map products’) on district databases of NRDMS, potential of web/ communication technologies has been put to use. With the ever-increasing use of Internet and mobile devices, organisations are now capable of providing spatial data/ information to users through Geo-web Services. Wide user accessibility to such services is dependent on adoption of Geospatial Interoperability standards by the data/ information providing agencies. A prototype based on Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC’s) Web Feature Service (WFS) and Web Map Service (WMS) specifications has been developed to demonstrate the concept of standards-based Geo-Web Service. Capable of storing the data sets in a Relational Database, the Prototype serves the feature data on the web using Geography Mark up Language (GML) format of OGC and a map product in JPEG/ GIFF formats displayable in a standard browser like MS IE or Mozilla Firefox. Efficiency in delivery of feature data or map products could be significantly improved by providing web-based feature or map service. [Research Agency: IIT, Kharagpur]
