Web-based Geographic Information System (WebGIS) provides information management and publishing geographic databases through the Internet. It can be developed using the so called “open sourse” technologies (MapServer, Geoserver, PostGIS and PostgreSQL), a modular and scalar architecture, as stated in the European Directive INSPIRE. WebGIS system allows using any Internet browser to be connected with defined geographic database, allowing the user to navigate through geographic and thematic information and provides citizens with services such as the ability to monitor the development of administrative procedures , reporting events, locating object and occurrences.

GIS technology can be applied in various studies CHARACTERISTICS spatial objects in regional and spatial planning, and all aspects of the life of man.
