Has anybody used Automated Testing tools with GIS or Geographical Maps and if so which tool did you use. Also has anybody used Testing Tools with Navigation Systems like Air Traffic Control sysrem or Marine Navigation Systems and again what tool did you use
Hi 3 years back i also had the same question when i wasinto GIS. You see ina GIS tool where ever we see objects like line, polygon, points etc are itself displayed in a object and testing tools are limited to work upto that object only, where as if you are using WinRunner then to some extent it will be able to work in the display object also but will record things in terms of clicks only, which might be not useful when the zoom level of your map changes or if you are trying to drag a line it might get hard to do it.
I dont know to what extent of testing you want to but Yeah you can go for Winrunner evaluation.
I have never seen a satisfactory tool for automaticcaly test pictures/streaming/video. I think eventually you'll have to settle for some unit-testing (code-testing) with stubs/drivers and keep the actual visual checks in manual tests.
