The emapsite Result

emapsite’s web services have been specifically designed for businesses who recognise that location information affords them an opportunity to create value, mitigate risk or access new markets. The integration of location content and associated location centric functionality into existing business applications makes business sense:

  • easy to use: emapsite web services are fully compliant with XML and SOAP , the standard protocol of web communication. As such these web services are not tied to one operating system or programming language and are published using Web Services Directory Language (WSDL)
  • standards based: emapsite’s web services are fully compliant with the relevant OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) standards, including Web Map Service (WMS) providing inter-operability and facilitating integration
  • secure: emapsite inside controls access to your own and licensed data using the full range of security authentication and authorisation protocols to fit with both client security and application specific requirements; our expertise includes use of Shibboleth (a standards based, open source software package for web single sign-on across or within organizational boundaries). emapsite inside uses configuration files to administer and control functional and content access. We offer users the desired levels of access flexibility at all transaction points while retaining over-arching security requirements.
  • powerful: the full suite of content and functionality available through emapsite web services provides a compelling catalogue of responsive, accurate, non-proprietary routines for embedding in client applications; this “GIS-lite” model brings the power associated with proprietary software tools to the integration environment in a flexible, re-usable, process-specific way.
  • up to date: emapsite works with its suppliers to ensure that the content of our location databases are as up to date as possible, including our multiple installations of OS MasterMap®, Ordnance Survey’s state of the art map database which is subject to 5000 changes or more a day and an ever expanding library of aerial photography, planning applications, historic mapping and environmental data
  • open: our open web services architecture integrates easily with other web services and open architectures using standard communication protocols to empower user applications
  • scalable: as the adoption of outsourced or hosted applications and services grows, so users need to be sure that those services can continue to provide the required service level; emapsite maintains our service level agreement with our customers through continued improvement to our technology and infrastructure to meet the most demanding solutions and transaction volumes
  • transparent: emapsite is proud of its fully transparent and auditable back end systems to both customers and suppliers
  • resilient: emapsite maintains a hosted environment with no single point of failure, full business continuity plan, robust backup and recovery solutions and 24*7 support
  • modular: see emapsite inside for details
  • “whole product”: emapsite’s service layer wrap-around support model means end to end support from initial requirement to application maintenance and update from a single tangible entity
