Abstract [en]

This thesis describes the process of identifying key requirements for a map-based interface for a document management software. Existing software platforms suitable for implementation of such a system were identified, evaluated and tested.

The purpose of this thesis was to provide Aconex, a document management company, a recommendation for the implementation of a map-based interface to its software for its customer Bechtel.

Requirements gathering was done in stages: identifying stakeholders, understanding context, defining requirements and finally creating software specifications.

Suitable platforms were identified by literature study and consultation. They were selectedbased on a few critical criteria. Selected platforms were used in implementation of a prototype showcasing the platforms’ abilities to satisfy the technical requirements.

It turned out that Google Maps provided the best platform for Aconex's needs. OpenLayers was a great alternative and came with the ability of using unlimited numbers of KML-layers, but at the disadvantage of requiring more code.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport beskriver processen att identifiera krav för ett kartbaserat gränsnitt till ett dokumenthanteringssystem. Tillgängliga mjukvaruplattformar som kan användas i detta syfte har identifierats, testats och utvärderats.

Målet med detta arbete var att ge råd till Aconex, ett företag som arbetar med dokumenthantering, om hur de borde implementera ett kartbaserat gränsnitt till sitt dokumenthanteringssystem för deras kund Bechtel.

Kravinsamling gjordes i olika steg: hitta intressenter, definiera systemkontext, samla in krav och utveckla programvaruspecifikationer utifrån kraven. Tillgängligamjukvarulösningar hittades genom en kombination av litteraturstudier och goda råd, och blev sedan prioriterade utifrån kritiska krav. Prototyper skapades i de mest lovande plattformarna, där varje prototyp visar hur plattformen uppfyller de krav som ställts.

Resultatet blev att Google Maps var den platform som fungerade bäst för Aconex. OpenLayers var också ett bra alternativ då man där kan visa obegränsat antal KML-lager, men för att OpenLayers ska klara av lika mycket som Google Maps krävs betydligt mer kod.
