Technology Expertise and IP
emapsite personnel have an extensive track record and
expertise in a wide array of
CAD, image processing and modelling applications, allowing us to understand,
support and advise our customers in their selection and exploitation of location
content. This expertise also informs
our consultancy activities and supports customers when working with them to
define the most appropriate choice of technology solution.
Since our inception emapsite has been innovating and deploying
products and solutions in the geospatial arena. Today emapsite is renowned for
its range of products and solutions for the land and property, renewables,
engineering, insurance, education and emergency services markets. These applications reflect emapsite’s
dual identity as geographic data provider, bringing together the highly complex
demands of managing ever-changing core data sets, and geographic data
provisioning platforms that enable users to access and exploit that data for or
within their own processes.
Our early adoption of the principles of a service
oriented architecture, as reflected in our range of loosely coupled geospatial
web services components (see emapsite inside - link), when combined with our
established track record in the geodata management sphere, represents a wealth
of near market intellectual property.
The benefit for clients and partners is a rapid deployment cycle to a
proven methodology in which extensive configuration and customisation to meet
demanding requirements feature strongly, reducing time to market and total cost
of deployment, maintenance and support.
emapsite continues to invest in research, develop and
innovate in support of our own online services and those for our customers,
always looking to harness emerging and best of breed tools and technologies that
satisfy our hunger for converged information systems solutions. This pays
dividends for the customer in the form of flexible tool sets that are easily
adapted to meet their needs.
emapsite’s use and in-depth knowledge of web services allows us to support
customers as they seek to open up their solutions in a similar way in order to
leverage the business value of location tools and content.
As alluded to ours is a componentised architecture,
built for swift deployment across multiple platforms with little or no
modification. We describe this as a
series of “stacks”: the content stack (the data), the applications stack (the
functionality) and the services stack (the transport mechanism).
It is the variety and flexibility of the various
stacks in this intellectual property portfolio that provide the integrator and
application builder with the fundamentals for delivering location enabled
decision support solutions:
- Flexible, extensible multi-Terabyte geospatial data
- OGC compliant Web Map Service (WMS)
- Coordinate transformation
- Multi-format data processing engine
- Multiple area definition tools
- Address search
- Point of interest search
- Street search
- National gazetteer search
- Feature search
- Feature selection
- Proximity search suite
- Near market OGC compliant Web Coverage Service (WCS)
and Web Feature Service (WFS)
emapsite sets great store by this pre-existing
intellectual property portfolio and the benefits that it provides to clients. Individual applications may require
customisation, integration with third party components or development of new
functionality; our team and our platform are both capable and scalable to
accommodate such requirements.
To assist in defining user requirements we have
grouped these capabilities together in a way that reflects generic or typical
workflows and business processes that utilise geographic content. These
“modules” are presented at emapsite inside and can also be seen in the context
of our case studies.
