Biodof-Map:A Web-based GIS Application for Mapping of Management and Monitoring of Fisheries Biosecurity Activities in Malaysia
Background: A web-based system provides access to a software system using a computer, tablet, the smartphone with aninternet connection. A Web-based GIS is based on a type of spatially distributed information. This set of technological services is part of a communication structure between the GIS server and the client. Their relationship is penetrated over a network, expressed through URLs (created by the server) and HTTP, rather than being within a device's memory.
Objective: This study is to design, develop, produce, emplace, test and deliver, together with proper attestation, user manual and training for web-based GIS application including User Acceptance Testing (UAT) in increasing the use of remote sensing technology and other related technologies such as Geographic Information System (GIS) and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) ("remote sensing and related technology") on the management and monitoring of fisheries biosecurity activities more efficient and effective under Department of Fisheries Malaysia DOF. The system developed was based on the DOF-Malaysian Space Agency (MYSA) Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed on November 27, 2018.
Methods: The bioDOF-Map system is web-based mapping and navigation can be used with the Internet such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, with best viewed with 1280 x 1024 resolution. The development of web-mapping system was programmed by using Arc GIS Server. The widgets, tools and GIS software functions were simplified to allow the search and analysis process can be done smoothly.
