Encanvas maps data sheet

  1. 1. APPLICATION DATA SHEET THROW AWAY MAPS PUT YOUR BUSINESS DATA ON A MAP Capturing, analysing and presenting information on maps (Geospatial Intelligence)  is extremely useful to accurately associate customers, assets and activities with  geographic locations. Encanvas Maps™ is a versatile mapping application that  everyone can use. It integrates closely with most data sources and digital map  resources including and other popular mapping services. Enterprise geo­spatial mapping just as you  imagined it should be Geospatial mapping applications have always required specialist software and tools. Why are these applications so complicated that they demand specialist skills in IT teams to use them? As the business value of location data has been realised ‐ achieving productivity gains, removing inefficiencies, improving coordination etc. – the number of processes requiring geospatial technology has grown substantially. No longer is it affordable or sensible to purchase dedicated and prescriptive geospatial solutions for each specific process across an organization that could benefit from it. View your business world on one map Encanvas Maps makes geospatial mapping technology available to everyone in the enterprise. It employs a point‐and‐click environment to create new views of data. Acquire data from back‐office systems and legacy GIS platforms to build modern portal and mobile mapping solutions. Encanvas Maps is built on the Encanvas platform and includes integration tools that mean different sources of data can be mashed together to form new federated views. Coherent data architecture Encanvas Maps treats every plotted data item as a pin associated with data held in a database record. This means collections of ‘pins’ can be filtered in a flexible way to make it easy to present users with only the information they’re interested in. It also means that Encanvas can store geospatial data assets in any form of relational database. Unrivalled performance Whether you’re using Encanvas Maps™ on a web‐ browser or a mobile device, you’ll be surprised how quickly maps are presented. This is due to the clever way that maps are presented in tiles (so the entire image doesn’t need to build all at once) and the underlying data architecture that means data queries can be rapidly composed. Scalability that knows no bounds Encanvas Maps is used for some of the most demanding geo‐coding applications. Use it to support millions of data items and still experience blistering response speeds. Business intelligence Encanvas Maps benefits from its role as a component of the Encanvas information management architecture which means rich features such as dynamic forms, email notifications, table views, charting and traffic lights and dials may be customized to service mapping applications. Unparalleled usability Encanvas Maps is really easy to use. Interfaces are clean and designed to work in a coherent way with common desktop applications to minimize user‐ training overheads. Why Use Encanvas for MAPS? Add Web browser‐based mapping  engine Maps to existing applications Mobile mapping applications Simple integration with existing  applications 24x7 access to maps via pc,  tablet or mobile Support for legacy mapping  resources including shape‐files Grow Use and access to mapping  applications across the  enterprise. Input data directly onto maps Mapping options with the choice  of simple web 2.0 styled pop‐up  mapping details or mass‐data  views Reduce Time to market on map‐based  applications developments Remove Inflated GIS software license and  support costs
