Demystifying Web GIS

what is webgis

GIS is evolving. That is a fact, but equally true is how quickly this is happening. Sometimes just keeping up with it all seems overwhelming. So how can we simplify some of these new concepts such as “Web GIS” and the “Web AppBuilder”? And once you know the potential of modern Web GIS, how can you be successful in leveraging that within your organisation? Esri South Africa hosted a seminar on 28 July to unpack these topics and show some examples of how Portal for ArcGIS can be used and configured to suit the way your company operates.

In summary, Web GIS is very much the GIS we already know and love. It is now just much more accessible using web technologies and is greatly simplified/configurable to suit the wider audience it now caters to. Look through a copy of the presentation from the seminar to get an idea of what was discussed and feel free to leave a note, comment, thought or problem in the comments below.
