Architectural databases and architectural works localization in digital maps

Jaromír Srba

SUMMARY

This article focuses on an architecture database management which explores new options and methods for displaying geographic location of documented works by means of map applications. The aim is to improve possibilities of locating architectural works documented in an architecture database and to allow more accurate and specific documentation of such works in particular. The research uses analytical and design methods of software engineering in the following successive steps: analysis of current methods and tools for locating works in an architecture database, analysis of needs, requirements and possibilities, then the design of recommended solutions, and finally, the implementation into the relational database model.
