Nowadays, many Web-based geographic applications have been developed in various domains, such as tourism, education, surveillance and military. However, developing such applications is a cumbersome task because it necessitates several types of components (e.g., maps, multimedia contents, indexation services, databases) that have to be assembled together. Hence, developers have to deal with different technologies and application behavior models. In order to create Web-based geographic applications and overcome design problems, we propose a framework composed of three steps: identifying some desired data, building the graphical layout organization and defining potential user interactions. According to this framework, we have specified an unified model and encode this one using Semantic Web technologies, such as RDF. Through a prototype named WINDMash, we have also implemented some tools that instantiate our proposed model and generate concrete Internet geographic applications that can be executed into Web browsers.
