From analysis of the factors affecting the service quality of Web GIS, the key factor in the efficiency of online vector data interactive editing is to control the size of the relevant data set. This paper puts forward an online vector data editing method based on the multi-scale representation data structure DBLG-tree. It designs WindowingQuery for large geometric features. Combined with SimplifyQuery, it can effectively control the vertex scale of the geometric features. At the same time, the

It provides DownsizeQuery which can directly control the volume of query result from the data set, so as to adapt to the performance of different browsers and mobile devices. Research shows that the execution time of DownsizeQuery under the support of multi-scale representation data structure is stable, and the size of the queried and updated data set is also stable. The upper bounded query time and query results ensure the response time of online interactive visualization and updating of the vector features.
