Geospatial Content Management System

Geospatial Content Management System

A Geospatial Content Management System (GeoCMS) is a Content Management System where objects (users, images, articles, blogs..) can have a Latitude, Longitude position to be displayed on an online interactive map. In addition the online maps link to informational pages (wiki pages essentially) on the data represented.

A GeoCMS can have a map of registered users allowing to build communities geographically, by looking at users location. The help of wiki for describing geographical layers present a simple way to solve the problem of geographical metadata.

Since the advent of [ Google Maps] and the publication of its API, numerous users have used online maps to illustrate their web pages. Google Maps is in itself not a GeoCMS but is a powerful building block.

Similarly [ Mapserver] is also a powerful building block for creating GeoCMS.

TikiWiki was the first CMS to become a GeoCMS in early 2003, it is now becoming popular on various other CMS especially since the publication of the Mapserver API in 2002 to many scripting languages: PHP, Python, Perl, Java,...
