The dominant solution of GIS in the early 1990s was a solution whose program could run on an independent workstation or personal computer. In this paper the investigation of previous solutions in which a database was kept on a large host computer and end users worked on data at ambiguous network terminals has been removed. In this paper, the author attempts to present general lines of the influence and impact of the GIS technology on the level of local and global networks.
Owing to the widespread advancements that have emerged over the years in hardware and software, today the network architecture of the GIS technology from a central data bank with a GIS server which is capable of maintaining, managing and efficient delivery of data, has been realized. Therefore, networking, communications and the ability to work in various environments are among central issues. For successful use of the GIS technology on the Internet, web users need to know and understand its principal characteristics.
