Mapping and Markup, Part 2

 

Resource Desc:

In Part 1 of this "XML Tourist" feature, I discussed some basic ingredients of a Geographic Information System (GIS) and introduced you to an XML-based, web-delivered application for representing GIS data: the Geography Markup Language, or GML. This month, we'll delve deeper into GML itself--starting with a brief further look into what distinguishes a true GIS from other tools for rendering two- or three-dimensional spaces on a computer monitor.
