The Galveston Bay Wetlands Interactive Mapping System (IMS) was developed as a component of the Galveston Bay Estuary Programs Habitat Database for the Galveston Bay Wetlands Inventory Project.
The IMS is a Web-based geographic information system (GIS) that provides access to spatial data layers.
GIS on the Internet provides a more dynamic tool than a system that displays only a static map or image.
The IMS allows users to view, query, and analyze data. Web users can overlay different data layers, allowing for the user to develop customized views suitable for printing.
Online mapping is data intensive and require frequent communications between client and server computers. Your connection speed and the network traffic both affect system performance.
