Implementation of developer workshops for the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR), Bonn, Germany
The Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR) is a higher federal authority within the portfolio of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Homeland Affairs (BMI). Fichtner IT Consulting successfully supported the BBR with developer workshops on integration of the Oracle APEX and browser-based geoinformation systems (WebGIS) technology areas. The developer workshops held covered in particular options for implementing (geographical) visualizations of Oracle APEX-based factual data by means of the OGC-compliant open source components OpenLayers, OpenStreetMap and GeoServer. In addition to an initial briefing in the context of the developer workshops, exemplary adaptations of the components were realized and contents about optimized layer / symbol definitions and geometry representations as well as their integration in the frontend were imparted.
