Геодемографическая информационная система России: архитектура и информационное обеспечение
The article presents the author’s approach to the design and implementation of the geodemographic information system of Russia (GDIS of Russia) developing at the Institute of Demography, Higher School of Economics. Advantages and disadvantages of the implemented architectures of the geographic information systems of social and demographic contents are revealed on the basis of comparative analysis of Russian and foreign systems. Thus we justified the choice of technical solutions, based on own resources without a dedicated GIS server with own mechanism for working with spatial data based on extended relational database management system data. We defined the system functionality (a set of tools for downloading, storing, displaying and analyzing of geodemographic data) in a form of services. The system of primary and derivative geodemographic indicators for GDIS of Russia is discussed. The logical and physical database models are developed.
