Browse-A-Map is a rich web mapping application based upon Open Source software that allows your users to share geospatial data using nothing more than a standard web browser. Data can be published from a number of standard spatial data sources, enabling true Cloud computing.

The application includes the facilities to quickly pan, re-centre, zoom, find features and retrieve attribute information from data stored in various file formats. Simple theme files, analogous to workspace or project files used in other systems, define and control the mapping available to users.

Browse-A-Map runs without any plug-ins, cookies or proprietary software - nothing to install on the client PC.

Browse-A-Map is based upon CDR's 10 years experience of building web mapping applications. CDR recognises the need to deliver cost-effective, easy to use and easy to administer applications, enabling you to achieve high levels of efficiency with low capital outlay.

Features and options include:

  • Modern interface
  • Mapping can be Tile Server, vector or a combination of both.
  • Cloud connections to Bing, OS OpenSpace, Google, OpenStreetMap, ViaEuropa, Yahoo or any tile-managed server.
  • Supports your own raster data, including aerial photography.
  • Add your own vector data as layers from a variety of file formats.
  • Supports multiple map projections.
  • A dynamic 'Minimap' facility, allowing users to navigate and keep track of their current position within the theme.
  • Search and find by postcode, road name or place name in Great Britain using Ordnance Survey OpenData.™
  • Easy to use layer management.
  • Real-time co-ordinate readout (WGS and BNG).
  • Optional scale bar.
  • Optional gridlines.
  • Printing to a user-defined template.
  • Copyright and licence watermarking options.
