Cadcorp is a British software and services company specialising in the development of geographic information systems (GIS) and web mapping software.
Cadcorp is the author and owner of the Cadcorp Spatial Information System® (Cadcorp SIS®).
The Cadcorp SIS product family includes applications for desktop and web environments together with comprehensive tools for GIS developers and systems integrators.
Cadcorp SIS products address all phases of spatial information management and are available worldwide through a network of business partners and through a direct sales team in the UK and Ireland.
Our vision and values
Cadcorp helps organisations in the public and private sectors maximise their return on investment in geographic information by making it easier to share and distribute spatial data between people and between systems. We achieve this by developing GIS and web mapping products that incorporate open and standards-based technologies. Our vision is for Cadcorp SIS to be universally recognised as the most interoperable GIS and web mapping system in the market.
Customers and partners choose Cadcorp for a number of different reasons including the versatility of our technologies, our support for open standards, and the high level of interoperability of our products.
Versatility. Cadcorp SIS is an integrated family of geospatial products comprising desktop, web, and developer applications. Products are available for all phases of spatial data management from creation, through to application development, deployment and data distribution. Compatibility between the various parts of the Cadcorp SIS product suite is guaranteed because all of the products share common core source code.
Support for open standards. Cadcorp has a long-standing reputation in the geospatial industry, both as a consumer and an active promoter of open standards. Users recognise that by deploying Cadcorp products, they will remain at the forefront of developments in GIS and mapping technologies.
Interoperability. Recognising that not all data will be in an open format, we have enabled Cadcorp SIS to read and display over 300 supported GIS, CAD, graphic and database formats, without the need for translation, and without the need to purchase add-on software.
Research and Development (R&D)
Cadcorp specialises in the development of complex geospatial software. Our end users include national and local governments, government agencies, emergency services, port authorities, and housing associations, amongst others, both in our home market of the UK and as far afield as Australia, Japan and North America.
Producing geospatial software for these diverse, sophisticated, and large scale use-cases is a highly challenging area of computer science, requiring considered and sustained R&D without which new capabilities would not be feasible. Our ongoing R&D activity furthers development of our advanced spatial intelligence functionality for all of our partners and end users.
