Geographic and cartographic information plays a strategic role in industrial, administrative and public areas such as urban planning and the planning of public telecommunication networks or tourist information services. This type of information is very complex to handle and consult because it mixes various layers of graphic data and non-graphic databases containing the relevant commercial, technical or legal information.
The full-scale INCH project aimed at the design of workstations for cartographic information systems with a high level of usability. This remains a challenge for information technology R&D. The following activities were undertaken in the exploratory action phase:
This one-year exploratory action has formed a sound commercial and technical basis for a full-scale project on intelligent charts.
The work has been extended to include various cities and is now continuing in the ESPRIT III project 6339, GEOWORKS, in the Software and Advanced Information Processing (SAIP) area of the programme.
