We have witnessed the accumulation of petabyes of geospatial data in the past decades, and, currently, terabytes of data are collected every day. These geospatial data are crucial in supporting decision making and emergency response. It becomes increasingly important to deliver these datasets in a timely fashion to the decision support or emergency response systems. Network GIS provides a vehicle to facilitate this delivering process. But to deliver efficiently such large volume of data and to handle large number of concurrent users, the performance of Network GIS needs to be improved to a level that different types of applications, especially near real time applications, can be satisfied. In this circumstance, we 1) review selected research on improving the performance of Network GIs; 2) provide insides on implementing the techniques; and 3) illustrate how to adopt the techniques in Network GIs. We expect the research and development reported here can be easily adopted by different users to accelerate the performance of various Network GIS software and applications, as well as to support the building of spatial data infrastructure to support the sharing of heterogeneous geospatial information.
