Abstract:

Geographical database management is a crucial component of spatial data infrastructures (SDIs) and is used by government organizations in provinces, regions, and countries. It plays an important role, especially during the 4.0 technology revolution and digital transformation to build e-government and digital government. A complete and scientific management of geographical databases is the most crucial core foundation of a system. The article applies open-source WebGIS technologies such as Geoserver map server, PostGIS data management software, Python programming language, Vue, and Openlayers map library to build spatial data management software. Spatial data is mainly in vector form, built according to national geographic database standards (QCVN 42: 2020/BTNMT). The system has main functional groups such as user account authorization and user groups; and geographic database management, including seven groups: borders, geodesy, population, topography, traffic, surface cover, and hydrology. In addition, the administration of some thematic classes such as drafting plans, managing equipment and units, etc., are performed. The software system is built in a service-oriented manner, serving as the core foundation to facilitate the development of many geo-portal applications.
