.NET Web Mapping
Adopting a "pure" .NET principle, CDR has written a simple
browser based interface, allowing users to view maps. The application
has the facility to quickly pan, re-centre, zoom by marquee, find features
and retrieve attribute information from data stored in various file formats
(including ESRI shape, MapInfo TAB, TIFF/JPG/ECW Raster and even CDR's
STC25 sewer network files). Simple project files, analogous to workspaces
or projects used in other systems, co-ordinate the mapping available to
Think of the possibilities - cost effective, centrally administered,
web-based GIS data distribution - available to anyone who needs it, using
nothing more than a standard web browser.
Features and options include:
- A dynamic 'bird's eye view' facility, allowing users to navigate
and keep track of their current position within the project
- Comprehensive layer management
- Real-time co-ordinate and OS sheet references
- Optional cross-hairs
- Optional scale bar
- Optional gridlines
- Dynamic plot template placement
- OS copyright and licence watermarking
- Previous view
- Zoom extents
- Password protected access
- User settings stored between sessions
- An effective 'Help' system
- End users only require Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher
- Interactive reporting function
- "Find the Nearest" function
- Fuzzy searching capabilities on data
- ECW raster imagery support
- No additional plug-ins
- No 3rd party toolboxes
- No downloads
- No cookies
- No special server requirements, other than the .NET framework
The whole application will fit, uncompressed, on
a single floppy disc!!
The system is infinitely scaleable as it only makes .NET framework
It can be deployed on free ISP servers.
Simple remote FTP administration provides easy installation and
maintenance - no end user downloads or updates are necessary.
Alternatively, mapping and data can be "served" from individual
text records with a link or button using our sister product Serve-A-Map.
A modified version is available for Pocket Internet Explorer, bringing
web based mapping to PDA devices.
