The spread of the Internet throughout society has sparked a revolution in the way many areas of knowledge are promoted. Geographic information systems (GIS) are, potentially, such an area. By distributing geospatial information and ways to manipulate it across the Web, a universal broadcast service is achieved, allowing users to access data anywhere. Geographic information (GI) is usually the realm of specialized companies, and the client's role is often limited to consuming such information. This project aims to conceive a prototype of an architecture that allows the visualization of the geographic information system of University of Tras-os-Montes and Alto Douro. This prototype will also be used to feed other systems, also being developed, like navigation systems based on GPS to help people with disabilities, namely, blind users.
