Modular Web-based Atlas Information Systems

We co-developed a client-server modular web-based atlas information system using Java Servlets and EJB, Java Applet and SVG. It is an architecture for the rapid implementation of self-adapting atlas systems.The client scales to different applications and Web technologies, and its modular architecture allows for rapid integration of new custom-tailored functionality.
