Conclusion & Discussion
• This chapter introduces a variety of cloud-based applications and
services by using ArcGIS suite products as an example.
• Pioneering steps for applying the cloud into GIS domain, empowering
GIS with
•
•
•
•
sufficient computing capabilities,
minimized energy cost,
fast response,
wide accessibility to the public as needed
• How to fully utilize the capabilities and advantages of the cloud is still a
big issue.
• More radical and solid progress would take place toward mature Cloud
GIS systems and architectures.
