7.1.2 Cookbook workflow

Setting up a geologic data web map service involves the following steps:

  1. Map your source data from its original schema to the GeoSciML-Portrayal schema; this step can be further broken down into the following sub-steps
    1. Map existing content fields to corresponding GeoSciML-Portrayal schema elements
    2. Determine controlled vocabulary terms for lithology and age to assign for each map unit
    3. Load data from the original database format to tables or files required by the server software used to deploy the web service
  2. Establish symbology for lithostratigraphic polygon portrayal that can be used by the map server
  3. Deploy your web service, create metadata for dataset and service.
