Abstract [en]

This is a survey of different techniques that may be used for embedding geographicdata into web pages. Different models of GIS communication are examined and a testsubject in the form of an application is implemented and evaluated.The test application (‘StudentKarta’ eng. ‘Student Map’) lets students submit theirresidential data and shows their position as pins on an embedded Map.An expire date is used to let the pins fade away and disappear.The application uses the popular Google map engines to display the geographicalpresentations. Both 2D (Google Maps) and 3D (Google Earth) are used and the pinsare rendered by using bitmaps and 3-models.

Abstract [sv]

Detta arbete undersöker de faktorer som kan vara avgörande vid val av teknik för attbädda in geografisk information i webbsidor varefter verktyg väljs och en pilotapplikationimplementeras och utvärderas.Som leverantör av geografiska data valdes den populära leverantören Google, förutveckling av applikationen ’StudentKarta’.Applikationen låter studenter mata in sina uppgifter varefter deras bostadsortpresenteras på en inbäddad karta. Uppgifterna är försedda med ett bäst-före-datumoch studentmarkörerna ”tonar bort” ju närmre detta datum kommer, för att slutligenförsvinna.Den resulterande applikationen presenterar en inbäddad lösning med två olikapresentationstekniker:- En tvådimensionell kartrepresentation med markörer som renderas medrastergrafik.- En tredimensionell ”Glob” (Google Earth) där positionerna märks ut medtredimensionella markörer.
