OrbisGIS - A GIS Application Dedicated to Scientific Spatial Simulation
Entry ID: OrbisGIS
Abstract: OrbisGIS is a Geographical Information System (GIS) dedicate to the scientific modeling and simulation. OrbisGIS is develop at IRSTV (Research Institute on Urban Sciences and Technics, CNRS/FR-2488), in the context of the Urban Data Federative Research Project. This project has to do with Urban GIS : tools and methods for the spatial analysis of the urban environment.
Three main axes ... structure this scientific framework :
-data acquisition techniques (remote sensing, modeling and simulation, site enquiries&),
-spatial data processing and representation (storage, modeling, multiscale 3D+t simulations),
-geographic data sharing.
OrbisGIS is a part of a more global Spatial Data Infrastructure. It is a mandatory component to anyone who needs to process spatial datas (create, update, process and model) or visualize them. Based on robust and well known libraries of the public domain such as JTS (Java Topologie Suite) or ImageJ, it provide the ability to join or visualize 2D vector and/or raster data. Those both data types may be stored in a local or remote DataBase Management System or a flat file.
