Project #5

Creation of geographical informative system (GIS).


In order to perform GIS-task we created program module, which secures interface between DB, information-reference system of the project and Google Earth software. In order to use functional options of Google Earth we use KML language – a specialized extension of XML. Queries to Google Earth in KML language are automatically formed by that program module on the basis of users’ queries. In result the users have an option to find in DB with use of information-reference system those plant characteristics they are interested in, including their geographical spread. And the Google Earth visualizes those data on a monitor.
