Performance evaluation and work-load estimation for geographic information systems

Abstract

Agencies acquiring GIS hardware and software are faced with uncertainty at two levels: over the degree to which the proposed system will perform the function required, and over the degree to which it is capable of doing so within proposed production schedules. As the field matures the second is becoming more significant. A formal model of the process of acquiring a GIS is presented, based on the conceptual level of defining GIS sub-tasks. The appropriateness of the approach is illustrated using performance data from the Canada Land Data System. -from Authors
