[MGI41-06] STARS : Spatially and Temporally Acquired Records Synchronizer

*Ken T. Murata1 (1.National Institute of Information and Communications Technology)

Due to a large scale data size in Earth investigations, each dialogue in the web application has become complicated. It is hard to desplay a variety of data sets in one browser frame. I introduce a new concept of GIS (geographic information system)-based environment for Earth sciences and operations named as STARS (Spatially and Temporally Acquired Records Synchronizer). The STARS provides us with synchronized WebGIS applications for 4-D (3-D in space and 1-D in time). The STARS so far has provided two jquery plug-ins for this synchronization; “Timeline” and “TileViewer” ( The Timeline is for time management that is available with various WebGIS tools ( The TileViewer is to provide scalable pyramid tile images. One of the examples to use the TimeViewer is “Himawari real-time web” ( Methods of synchronizing multiple WebGIS or graph applications using Timeline and TileViewer are presented, and examples of these synchronizations are demonstrated in this talk.
