Tools and Technologies

emapsite has adopted best of breed tools, techniques and technologies to underpin both our services architecture and our operational approach.  This includes:

  • PRINCE2 for project management in which “a management environment is created for the purpose of delivering one or more business products according to a specified Business Case."
  • Dynamic Systems and Development Methodology (DSDM) for our application development process embracing workshops, iterative development, MoSCoW prioritisation, timeboxing and prototyping
  • Mapping service delivery approach to the ITILv3 standard; recognising that not every aspect of ITIL is applicable to every project, and by benchmarking the requirements against a pre-existing system we are able to create a cost-effective service delivery framework without unnecessary overheads

We have adopted a hybrid of project management, software development and service delivery methodologies, which we believe is necessary to meet the challenges posed by many application development undertakings.

Utilising this hybrid of techniques is only possible because of the high-level of pre-existing software components and service architecture that the team has at its disposal. An enabling feature of emapsite’s ability to deliver to the functional and timeframe demands of many projects is that a significant number of presumed “High Level Requirements” are already in place. These elements include:

  • a pre-existing multi-layer solution for OGC-compliant WMS map backdrop delivery into any browser based application
  • components for the licence management and administration of that data
  • access control
  • map display and overlay controls
  • geocoding and address search
  • “report” generation to PDF
  • spatial queries and analyses
