JeoViewer: Object-Oriented GIS Framework

JeoViewer: Object-Oriented GIS Framework

JeoViewer is an intelligent, object-oriented geographical information system (GIS) framework written in Java. It can provide links to any object's data and behaviors, and is optimized for spatial geometry representation. Unlike traditional "static" GIS systems, JeoViewer is dynamic and can be dynamically linked to objects, models and other live data streams.

JeoViewer's object-oriented approach provides a more natural representation of spatial data. It can used as a stand-alone module or embedded in another framework. It is intended for web use and its Java programming makes it more practical, functional, and useful for Java programmers.
