Abstract

A software testbed was constructed by reusing components developed for a previous demonstration and by adding new components. These components were constructed using prototypes of software implementing early versions of the OpenGIS® Simple Features Specifications. The demonstration was presented at the Open GIS Consortium booth at GEObit in Leipzig, Germany in May 1998. The original demonstration from October, 1997 and the demonstration of May 1998 are described. Several issues regarding interoperability, data modelling, data scale, and usability are discussed. Data used in the demonstration include 1:1,000,000 scale Digital Chart of the World and 1:1,000 scale cadastral data for the city of Berlin. Technical issues are discussed and user feedback is presented.
