Paper Abstract

The capabilities of the Georgia Tech Virtual Geographic Information System (GTVGIS) have been extended recently to fake full advantage of the internal client-server internal structure that we have used in our stand-alone visualization capabilities. Research is underway in the creation of 2 additional client-server modes that will allow GTVGIS capabilities to be accessed by laptop client systems with high quality rendering capability and by very inexpensive lightweight client laptop and possibly hand held computing platforms that need only to support standard web browsers. Interface to large, remote, databases is over IP protocols is necessary for these new GTVGIS modes. This paper describes each mode of GTVGIS and the capabilities and requirements for hardware and software for each of the modes.
