sub GIS Integration Feet Tracking Custom Web Mapping Consulting

Web mapping is the process of designing, implementing, generating and delivering maps using web technologies vs. “GIS”, or Geographic Information Systems, which is similar but focuses more on desktop and client server architectures.

Governments and business IT departments traditionally have GIS systems, where organizations who want less complicated systems for internal and external applications are using web mapping technologies. Examples of web mapping include:

  o Store locators.
  o Real estate finders.
  o Data visualization apps, showing business information, Etc.
  o Fleet and asset tracking applications.

Web mapping technologies like Bing Maps, MapQuest and Google Maps have evolved very rapidly over the past couple of years. This began with web services based mapping (static maps), today is AJAX/Silverlight/Flash, and in the not too distant future will be HTML5. These technologies have well-defined usability and user interaction, and thousands of organizations are leveraging them for internal and external mapping applications. We can help you choose the right technology, and then implement it successfully. A couple of questions for you:

Are you finding it difficult to choose the right web mapping approach/technology?

  o There are many options and platforms available.

  o APIs are confusing.
