GIS now more User Friendly
How do you manage your data geographically? Let’s imagine for a moment that we are a Wind Farm Company that is trying to allocate a spot for the next few wind turbines, which we have just purchased. Rather than looking at all the following pieces of information on spreadsheets, tables and charts they can be incorporated and managed geographically on Geographic Information Systems (GIS);
- size of the turbine and how it can be broken up to be transported
- length of the lorries that transport the turbine
- corner angles of the road that the lorries will be travelling up to get to the summit of the hill
- petrol used in relation to the duration of the journey
- correct side of the hill to position the turbine
- slope and aspect of the hill
- size of the turbine sites
All of these can be interpreted and managed much more easily within GI Software.
Another side of managing the data geographically is figuring out where to store the data. Formally there was a need to store all the OSi map data on your server. This was costly and timely as you had to purchase the server and time was also spent organising and updating the data.
With the Recession these resources are precious and both time and money are needed to be spent in other aspects of your work environment.
MapGenie is a new way to supply data to our customer. By choosing this option both time and money would be saved. There would be no more need for managing and organising or even storing the OSi data. This OSi map data is stored on OSi servers, which MapGenie customers have access to. Also once the data is updated on the OSi server, your OSi map data is automatically updated.
The benefits of how your geographic data can be managed are endless.
