The research topic of this PhD thesis is the use of a variety of open source and freely available, open Web map technologies, services and tools, in order to create city’s electronic services. In the doctoral dissertation are analyzed the modern Web trends and advanced services for the implementation of the eCity concept, as part of eGovernment, which is based on the use of map technology. The doctoral thesis proposes a model of observance of European directives, declarations and action plans which treat the use of geo-information, services and tools with emphasis on interoperability of the created services and centralized distribution model. Emphasis is placed on the use of freely available and open source services, applications and map resources, where geo-information can be created through the collaboration and crowd sourcing process. To create interoperable systems, it is proposed to follow OGC specifications and standards. Doctoral dissertation presents an analysis of t...he current state of the use of geo-information, GIS tools and free Web map services, as well as trends that treat the creation of geo-information and sharing, especially in the developing countries. The presented eCity concept is based on the integration of information from heterogeneous sources. By analyzing the current situation, the doctoral dissertation recommends the use of Open Source GIS software, as well as the use of OSM resources with exceptional modifying possibilities, based on which they can create interactive map systems and services for the purpose of city’s electronic services. To build eCity concept, a modification of an open platform World Map is proposed, which provides the necessary interoperability of services, tools and resources. The creation of non-specific Web map services is proposed that in many ways enhance the quality of eGovernment towards the citizens and other users at the city level. Based on the proposed model a range of interoperable services can be developed that can be used for the use and distribution of geo-information towards other services, in order to achieve a high degree of rational utilization of resources within the electronic administration, with an increase in the quality of service. This centralization of geo-information and use of freely available services indeed reduces the cost of implementation and use of such systems, which is crucial for e-governance in developing countries.
