Geographic information systems (GIS) are all around us in this day and age, but most people, even developers, are not aware of the internals. Many of us use GIS through webbased systems such as Google Maps or Bing Maps; as GPS data that drives maps and address searches; and even when tracking where your latest parcel from Amazon is.
The world of GIS uses a complex mix of cartography, statistical analysis, and database technology to power the internals that drive all the popular external applications we all use and enjoy. In this guide I’ll be showing you the internals of this world and also how it applies to .NET developers who may be interested in using some GIS features in their latest application.
