Cloud computing is a model for empowering organizations by providing them ondemand access to computing resources through the internet. These resources (network,servers, storage, and services) can be quickly set up and deployed with minimal interaction from the service provider. Cloud services are an emerging technology that allows organizations access to on-demand computing. Organizations control the amount of services consumed, paying only for what they use.
This technology is well suited for small organizations that cannot afford expensive hardware, software, and the IT staff needed to support Web GIS applications. Smaller organizations can leverage economies of scale and only pay for what they consume. The organizations have the ability to increase or decrease services on demand. This allows the organization to spend less time, on managing IT resources and more time focusing on their core mission.
The primary reason for implementing a Web GIS for any project is to reach multiple users at the lowest possible cost, integrate the spatial component, help manage the data (view, modify, edit, and export), reduce data entry error, provide an intuitive and easy-to-use graphical user interface, and facilitate the updating and deployment of the application.
