NDSU CS: GeoSpacial Shape Viewer

Project Details

The GeoSpacial Shape Viewer project is designed to convert GIS ESRI shape files into KML files for an industry consortium project undertaken by several local businesses and the NDSU CS department as part of a grant for developing a "Smart Farm". The purpose of this project is to allow for data mining in precision agriculture by using satellite imagery to determine crop yields. Our capstone team worked on developing a web-based view for this data.


  • Upload and convert shape files from GIS programs
  • Provide web view for data
  • Integration with Google Maps
  • Allows creation and combination of user-defined shapes and creation of KML files
  • Search for locations
