Background and Manifesto

  • A government development collaboration at state and federal level
  • Combination of official german survey data with other open geospatial data sources
  • Technical platform for agile development, continuous integration, deployment and operation of SDI systems based on cloud technologies
  • Use of Free and Open Source Software
  • Simple user oriented data model for geospaial data
  • Creation of new AdV standard products. Phase 1: Vector Tile based Web Map API

Implementation

Smart Mapping develops new processes, software and services at all levels of geospatial data processing for the deployment and integration of survey data with other sources. The project team members are state and federal government domain experts and software developers working in a distributed agile environment with the support of an external Scrum Master. The projet follows a phased approach. In the first phase a proof of concept was developed as a live prototype server which derives vector tiles from official geospatial data. It was presented at the Intergeo 2019 congress and trade fair.

The development is coordinated by the AdV working team SmartMapping with participants from the German state surveying offices, the Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (BKG), the German Federal Armed Forces (Bundeswehr ZGeoBW) and third parties from research and education.

Highlights of the new system

  • New mobile web maps
  • Maps on demand
  • New application options for users
  • Simple and flexible integration with own data
  • Individual styling
  • Simple and user friendly data model
  • Shared generalization processes
