Spatially Querying Data in Two Dimensional Media

One of the aspects that distinguish this project is how it delivers information. Through the maps you may search spatially—by querying elements in the study area. These objects include buildings, roads, dams, railroads, bridges, and various landscape areas like gardens and districts of the city. As you move your cursor over the objects and areas of interest, pop up text windows identify them. Clicking an object prompts a search engine to retrieve the object's specific record, which also offers entry to related searches.
