Professional Memberships and Affiliations
emapsite founders have been vocal, and at times dissenting,
members of the
GIS community for
three decades and are proud to be considered knowledge leaders in the paradigm
shift to a broader location aware enterprise.
emapsite is a corporate member of the Association of
Geographic Information (AGI) and has presented and exhibited at
AGI events and
taken part in the Environmental and Land and Property Special Interest Groups
In support of a broader public and commercial agenda for the
purveyor of geographic goods and services emapsite is a member of the Locus
As you would expect the emapsite development team are all
subscribed to MSDN.
emapsite sets great store by our partnership Ordnance Survey
and with our other providers.
As a wider context for location information continues to
emerge and expand emapsite is widening its professional affiliations to include
key membership organisations, integrators, suppliers and software vendors.
Our recent alliance with Infotech Enterprises Europe in their
successful submission to the Office of Government Commerce Buying Solutions
selection process for the Catalist GISS Framework (estimated to
be worth some £60m annually) is one example of how emapsite is spreading our net
of niche capability to the wider market.
Membership of the
Association of Alliance Managers (AAM) on the one hand and the
British Wind Energy Association (BWEA) on the other indicate both the nature of
the opportunity and the challenge.
emapsite increasingly sees
its role as an enabler in the adoption of geographic data across a wide swathe
of industries, some of whom have used CAD and
GIS in relatively siloed
disciplines for many years, others for whom it is “new” and yet others who share
a vision for common geographic frameworks.
The need to optimise investments in hardware and software, coupled to
accelerating inter-operability expectations has ironically brought closer
relationships with both suppliers and ISVs.
While emapsite remains
vendor agnostic we have worked very hard to ensure that our products and our
services are suitable for and support both proprietary and open desktop
applications from all the main CAD and
GIS vendors (link to Tools and
GIS and CAD) as well as many
other more specialised software developers (link to Tools and Technologies >
Modelling and Visualisation).
In particular, engineers and others may be pleased
to note that emapsite has formed an excellent relationship with both the
Autodesk channel and Leica GeoSystems in the UK and is pleased to work with you and your supplier
to enhance your use of geographic data and the value to be derived therefrom.
