Paper Abstract

Spatial data sharing among multiple GIS (Geographic Information System) platforms is a fundamental requirement of many GIS applications, yet conventional methods of spatial data interoperability don't adequately consider practical application circumstance, which now becomes a primary barrier to more efficient spatial data sharing among multiple GIS platforms. In this paper, after analyzing the disadvantages of conventional methods and the causation of the disadvantages, and analyzing the principle of spatial data access of ArcGIS, MapInfo and GeoStar based on Oracle Spatial storage, the authors propose a new spatial data interoperability method called Different meta information and Same spatial data Method. This method is based on Oracle Spatial, through which spatial data interoperability for multi-platform of GIS is available. The results of experiments demonstrate that this method is a new simple practical approach adapted for current application circumstance, and it provides us a new idea for spatial data interoperability.
