This demo shows the automatic generation of different web-based geographic information systems using a tool based on software product lines engineering. These systems are variant regarding the data domain they can manage and the functionalities they provide. Although the products are different, the set of assets that implement the GIS-related functionalities is the same. These assets are assembled together by our tool depending on the particular requirements of each products. In the demo, we show the behaviour of both the tool generating the products and the products themselves.
