Development of SILKS

The SILKS spatial modules has inbuilt webGIS tools for displaying and querying of spatial data. It is developed using open source software packages. The UMN Mapserver is used as a GIS engine, PostgreSQL/PostGIS as an object oriented relational database management system (ORDBMS), GeoServer for creating OGC web services. An open source web application tool built on top of MapScript using the PHP programming language has been used for development of interactive user interface. The SILKS will allow for effective dissemination, sharing and management of spatial information, which can be used as an effective decision making tool for Sericulture Planning and development. The non-spatial modules were created using Web Tools such as HTML, CSS, JavaScripts etc.
