"ÖROK Atlas Online" - Atlas Information System Austria (AIS-Austria) - is a research and development project of The Austrian Conference on Spatial Planning (ÖROK) for the construction of a prototype for an interactive, multi-media thematic atlas in cooperation with the Department of Geography and Regional Sciences (IFGR) - University Vienna, the Department of Geoinformation and Cartography (IGK) - University of Technology Vienna and the Austrian Institute of Regional Planning (ÖIR) - Information Services GmbH (I: D). The project started in September 2004. The project duration is 1.5 years.
In the prototype of the web atlas, on the basis of the topographical basic geo-data, predefined and prepared for several scales (the basic scale for Austria is 1:1,000.000), thematic contents will be visualized and made accessible over the interactive map based graphical user interface as a communication portal.
AIS-Austria is a hybrid system which should be able to ensure also the printed map in a high graphic resolution (the dual atlas principle).
The user navigation and system functionalities, which provide the geo-communication, will be presented.
