TerraView is a Geographic
Information System (GIS) that provides a
friendly interface allowing you to view and manipulate both vector and
raster data. This application was developed on top of TerraLib 5 geographic library which have been completely reengineered.
In this new version of TerraView some concepts previously used have
changed and some new concepts were adopted.
A short explanation of these
concepts is presented here. To know about the GUI TerraView visit this link.
It also presents new (or
enhanced versions of) functions for data conversion and data exchanging;
access to different data sources; map display; explanatory spatial data
analysis; spatial and non-spatial queries; vector and raster processing
and spatio-temporal analysis functionalities.
Some frequently asked questions from users who are starting to work
with this application are:
to manipulate data?
to change the visual
presentation of points, lines, polygons, raster data?
