Abstract. Web applications which are high functioning, efficient, and meet the performance demand of the client are essential in modern cartographic workflows. With more and more complex spatial data being integrated into web applications, such as time related features, it is essential to harmonize the means of data presentation so that the end product is aligned with the needs of the end-user. In this paper we present aWeb GIS application built as a microservice which displays various timeseries visualizations to the user to streamline intuitiveness and functionality. The prototype provides a solution which could help to understand various ways in which current web and spatial analysis methods can be combined to create visualizations that add value to existing spatial data for cartographic workflows.
