Oracle Fusion Middleware MapViewer (or simply, MapViewer) provides powerful geospatial data visualization and reporting services. Written purely in Java and run in a J2EE environment, MapViewer provides web application developers a versatile means to integrate and visualize business data with maps. MapViewer uses the basic capability included with Oracle10g (delivered via either Oracle Spatial or Locator) to manage geographic mapping data. MapViewer hides the complexity of spatial data queries and the cartographic rendering process from application developers. The services provided by MapViewer are accessed through a flexible and powerful XML-based API over HTTP protocol, or the new AJAX based JavaScript API included in version 10.1.3.
