Creative web applications, in cooperation with lecturer Markos Avlonitis of the Ionian University, Dept. of Informatics prepared the research publication titled “WebGIS Design & Implementation for Pest Life-cycle & Control Simulation: The Case of Olive-fruit Fly”. Therein, the design and implementation issues of a Web Geographical Information System aiming at the simulation of Pest Life-cycle & Control are discussed.
The research focused on the Olive-fruit Fly that greately affects the olive tree fruits. The results were submitted at the International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies in Agriculture, Food and Environment (HAICTA 2013), where, after peer reviewing were accepted for publication and presentation.

Abstract: This work presents an integrated web geographical information system aiming at managing the simulation of the pests’ lifecycle and control in a “Software as a Service” fashion. The approach adopted herein assumes that simulation processes take place in black-box functions and focuses on the management of all related information through thin clients such as common Internet browsers. In addition, in the proposed service a small framework is designed and implemented aiming at inherently handling the associated geographical data of the service in a visual manner.
