WebGIS Platform for Ancient Maps

April 13, 2010 -- National Museum of Taiwan History established a WebGIS platform, Ancient Map Geographic Information System, to manage more than 2,000 ancient Taiwan maps, and integrate the research results with present base map. The ancient and present maps can be queried and viewed easily via Internet browser.

By using the Ancient Map Geographic Information System, scholars can have an in-depth reference of geographic data while researching in Taiwan history, academic education and culture. Users are also able to compare the differences of human geography from ancient times to nowadays via the WebGIS platform.

Ancient Map Geographic Information System can also add other kinds of GIS file formats, such as digital terrain model (DTM), remote sensing image, and all kinds of vector data, to expand its system function. The developing of other relevant advanced functions, such as advanced query, 3D demonstration culture, and travel guidance, is also emphasized in this system.

The system adopts SuperWebGIS, the Internet Map Server developed by SuperGeo Technologies, as the platform for demonstrating geographic information. Microsoft SQL 2005, on the other hand, is the database platform.

Ancient Map Geographic Information System can provide the reference of map management for management personnel by integrating GIS technology with mass GIS data and the metadata. Furthermore, it is convenient for general users to view the difference between ancient and present maps, and to apply the data to study and analyze historical research via the Internet browser.

This function shows users an integrated interface to query the ancient maps along with the present administration maps and road maps. Thus, users can compare and conduct the research from the differences between maps of all eras. Regarding the structure, the system contains the functions of Map Manipulation, Map Locating, Ancient Map Query, Transparent Management and Map Printing, the commonly-used GIS functions for users to well utilize the maps.
