This chapter attempts to show the conceptual design a Web-based GIS Residential Property Marketing Information System (WGRPMIS). This system is intended to be integrated with the virtual GIS technology enabling the consumer to virtually explore the potential property based upon the multi criteria selection through assisted geo-processing query. The proposed system is built using Adobe Flex on ArcGIS Server framework to enable geo-processing and geometric network capabilities. Through the pilot system, the success of 3D and virtual reality integration was revealed. Due to limitations of the query functions and 3D feature complexity taking its toll on the system’s performance, an improved geo-processing scheme is presented in this paper and the conceptual design of this system is revised. The improved query function which includes road network and accessibility were taken into consideration in solving buffer and radius query is developed. The revised conceptual design will further be used in designing the simplified 3D visualization viewer to the Virtual panoramic display.
