Simple GIS for CPS
Cartographic maps are extremely useful tools for analyzing and summarizing information with a spatial component, and many CPS documents have a spatial component: events happen at places, and reports are often concerned with places.
With the addition of a few simple properties, CPS documents can be promoted to GIS (Geographic Information System) features. The CPSGeo product provides a new geolocation schema for documents, and a lightweight web GIS application for locating and displaying document features cartographically.
CPSGeo builds upon open standards for GIS interoperability such as GML, the Geography Markup Language, and WMS, the Web Map Service specification. The body which oversees these standards is the Open Geospatial Consortium (http://www.opengeospatial.org
