Abstract

The aim of this work is to suggest a method to explore relationships between features of chemical-physical variables that are distributed unevenly over space. Given a large number of data one could seek patterns that may not be visible without using advanced techniques of query, selection, analysis and display. For example, to access to the great variety of data available from multidisciplinary surveys on works of art, powerful tools are required to manage them. Exchanging and sharing are necessary to reduce time to be spent on low-end activities and to focus instead in higher-level thinking and problem solving. GIS (Geographical Information System) and MapServer, an OpenSource development environment for building partially enabled Internet applications (free available on http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu) are useful to perform the above task. GIS is a combination of robust hardware, powerful software, special data and thinking explorer. Through GIS one can manipulate hardware and software, work on the data, explore relationships between features and investigate important locations and topics. MapServer, beyond browsing GIS data, allows to create "geographic image maps", i.e. maps that can direct users. The same application serves as a "map engine" for other portions of the site providing spatial context where it is needed. This coupled software has never been applied to strongly multidisciplinary studies. In this work we attempt to fill this gap. Public administrators also have discovered GIS as an important tool for a wide variety of tasks; CAD-based maps of historical building can be maintained during many years. Furthermore by adding an intelligent interface to these maps the planning and analysis for safeguard management can be improved.
