(Submission #79)


GGIS CLOUD project was born with the objective of developing a web application that allows the publication and management of data, metadata, services and applications according to OGC and INSPIRE standards by an user without technological knowledge.

GGIS CLOUD is an integrator of technologies that, under a single and simple interface, abstracts the user from the set of applications that support an SDI or a geoportal (map servers, catalog, search engines, printing services, mashup technologies, download services, etc...).

The architecture that supports this solution is based on the integration (through native APIs) of the main components that provide standard services such as PostGIS, geoserver or geonetwork. This makes GGIS CLOUD highly sustainable and modular. The project has been fully developed with open source software technologies. It is important to highlight that GGIS CLOUD doesn't re-invent the wheel but combines all existing technologies to ease and simplify the creation and maintenance of a SDI node implementing INSPIRE.

In this way, from GGIS CLOUD, a NON EXPERT user will be able to publish, from a local file or database:

All these elements can be managed and published from a geoportal, as well as being shared through Mashup technologies and social networks.

The main improvements developed are the management of Vector tiles or the generation of MBTiles for mobile devices.

The project's expectations are very important from the perspective of incorporating numerous national, regional and local spatial data producers under the INSPIRE Directive, by overcoming the technology gap for the data producers in their path to the INSPIRE compliant services publication.

Currently this solution has been adopted by several European and American public administrations for the management of spatial data sets of different INSPIRE themes (Addresses, Administrative units, Hydrography, Land cover or Agricultural and aquaculture facilities, among others).
