Boštjan Kastelic (2010) Impementation of a GIS based on Oracle Technology. EngD thesis.
The purpose of this diploma thesis is to establish geographic information system (GIS), which would enable the presentation of already existing geographic data. Agency of the Republic of Slovenia for Agricultural Markets and Rural Development uses older application, based on Java platform. Due to the growing needs for the improvement of the GIS, which are almost impossible to introduce into the existing one, we decided for the development of a new system with Oracle product called Oracle MapViewer. We were enthusiastic about the speed of the performance examples, located on the official site of the product, and numerous tools, which can help us with building the GIS. The geographic data, saved in the form of Oracle Spatial, and the possibility to place Oracle Map Viewer on the existing Oracle Application Server were the most significant factors for our decision. The new GIS, called AgriMap, met all our requirements. We did not have to carry out the measurements, since the performance with AgriMap looked better already at first sight. We found out that Oracle technologies, for example Oracle MapViewer and Oracle Maps, are efficient enough for the implementation of the existent GIS and for the realization and progress of the emerging requirements.
