This thesis emphasizes current Web GIS technologies with emphasis on architectures, particularly web applications. The goal of the study is based on data sharing and improving the efficiency of students, professionals and researchers utilizing data from the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science (SFRES) geospatial data. This paper is an overview of the MTU geospatial web page and using ArcGIS JavaScript API to develop a web application. The development of the application was based on open source software tools such as Map Server and Feature Server for the GIS functions, HTML, and JavaScript as programming languages and CSS as a markup language.
