Web GIS Solution for Monitoring the Forest-Cover in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam
Abstract: In recent years, Web GIS has been widely applied in mapping and sharing spatial data. This paper introduces a Web GIS solution has been applied to establishing “The Mekong Delta Geographic Information Systems—MGIS”. The development and implementation of a web-based MGIS are a suitable technology for monitoring and managing the natural resources and environment that aims to achieve sustainable development in the Mekong Delta region. The proposed solution shows that Web GIS can be applied effective to for integrating and sharing data among administration agencies in order to provide fully integrated information of updated on the status of land cover changes and analyzing the trend of forest-cover changes in this region. Results of this study illustrate the MGIS’s applications in sharing of regional data that allows multiple users to use tools for displaying spatial distribution of forest-cover in the period from the year 1990 to 2015 and analyzing the trend of changes.
