Web Map Viewer & Editor
Browser-based and off-the-shelf applications for corporate use by public and private organisations
Web Map Viewer and Editor meet the needs of organisations which require more control over the display and manipulation of spatial data than is provided by web map publishing solutions. They provide a cost-effective solution to the situation where 80% of corporate GIS users require only 20% of GI functionality to do their job.
Web Map Viewer is the read-only version of the product. It provides a complete, easy-to-use and off-the-shelf application for viewing, querying, measuring and redlining map-based information by means of a web browser.
Web Map Editor extends the functionality of Web Map Viewer to meet the needs of users who occasionally edit spatial data, but don’t need the advanced editing capabilities of desktop products. With Web Map Editor a non-expert user can create, edit and delete both the geometry and attributes of spatial data.
Web Map Viewer & Editor when combined with other products in the Cadcorp SIS family comprise all the components required for an intranet GIS and web mapping solution: a browser-based application, a geospatial web services engine (GeognoSIS), and administrator software (Map Manager).
