Utilizing MySQL GIS to Create an Interactive Atlas of Ireland

By Daniel McAlister

Geographic data manipulation and display is up there with video editing as a resource hog. MySQL now provides types and functions to bring that data to the user quickly and efficiently. Together with open source technologies such as SVG, PHP, and XML, intelligent Spatial Data can now be delivered to the Web to assist in the identification of particular locations and provide solutions to the many spatially related questions that combine to define the area of Geographical Information Systems.

This talk outlines the creation of an interactive Atlas of Ireland that not only uses open source software but also open source data which has been opened up to the public by MySQL's spatial extension.

An Atlas for Ireland's Artists (using MySQL GIS) (2005.09.18)
by Daniel McAlister, CTO, Integrated Spatial Solutions Inc.
Portraits of Ireland Ltd is a web based Irish company aiming to help connect the diaspora to people and places in Ireland through Art. This startup company required an online interactive atlas to assist both artists and those commissioning their work to find not only the island's more well known locations but also its remote and smaller place locations. To this end an Artist Atlas was created. Some of the primary requirements were a cartographically rich, atheistically pleasing vector based system, fully searchable, and with as extensive a database as possible.
