ABSTRACT

In this study we propose the future direction of Korean Online National Atlas by analyzing the research papers and the sites related to the foreign online national atlases. This study is comprised of three folds: First, we investigate the preceding researches related to the online atlases. Second, we derive the implications through the analyses of the foreign online national atlases. Last, we propose the future direction of Online National Atlas of Korea by implementing a online population a map as a prototype based on the future implications above. There are four important things in implementing the online national atlas; reinforce the interaction with users, reflect social interests of a nation, apply the data which is being revised periodically, and be utilized in various platforms by applying the standard of spatial and attribute data. We recognized that these kinds of functions could be implemented in the same environment with the prototype proposed in this study.
