Infomix Universal Server (IUS) is a tool that permits the description of persistent geographic objects. The geographic objects were designed by using the OMT methodology.

A web user interface was developed to show the geographic data. Data modeling was done by using points, lines, polylines and polygons. The data stored in the database could be exported and used by a client who runs a web user interface. Our representation gives the description to have an homogeneous geographic data representation to be used in a geographic database server. The user can then access and use the data stored in the database.The web user interf
