easy access to map data via Web Map Services
Utility companies need access to updated quality map
data. Today, quality map data sources from several National
mapping agencies, private mapping companies and government
organizations throughout the world are made accessible
through WMS (Web Map Services) technology.
As new map data is continuously
being produced, mapping organizations update their WMS
servers without the utility company having to care about
map versions, formats and projections from a large amount
of changing sources with Terabytes of data.
OpenNIS™ WebMap is
another must-have software application
in the OpenNIS suite, built on the OGC WMC specifications.
With OpenNIS™ WebMap
the utility company can get fast and easy access WMS
map data sources of preference. WMS map data can be
used in combination with map data sources stored locally
on company servers or directly on GIS clients.
OpenNIS™ WebMap gives fast
and easy access to large amounts of quality WMS map
data sources from all over the world.
When two or more maps are produced with the same geographic parameters and output size, the results can be accurately overlaid to produce a composite map. Furthermore, individual maps can be requested from different servers. The Web Map Service thus enables the creation of a network of distributed map servers from which clients can build customized maps.
