Cadcorp offers two hosted geospatial services, which can be procured independently or together. These are Software as a Service (SaaS), and Data as a Service (DaaS).
Both services have been accepted by the UK government as GIS Services supplied under G-Cloud 7.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
Cadcorp’s SaaS proposition is based around the provision of Web Map Layers, its flagship web mapping product, as a fully hosted service on an instance of the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform.
Web Map Layers is a sophisticated off-the-shelf application for Internet and Intranet mapping designed specifically for organisations wishing to share map-based information with a large community of non-expert users via a browser. It is often deployed with an Add-in called ‘Local Knowledge™’ which provides answers to questions about particular localities. You can find a description of Web Map Layers and Local Knowledge here.
Cadcorp will install, set up and manage an instance of Web Map Layers (and optionally Local Knowledge) on behalf of the customer. The customer will be able to load updates to existing map overlays via a secure FTP area of the server. These updates will be automatically applied by a Cadcorp data management application. All changes and configuration to the application and server will be carried out by Cadcorp staff.
Cadcorp will work closely with the customer in order to set up the application. Following set up, Cadcorp will assume full responsibility for ongoing maintenance. The allocation of responsibilities between Cadcorp and the customer is defined in a Service Agreement.
Data as a Service (DaaS)
The hosted data service offered by Cadcorp is based around the provision of OS map data hosted on an instance of the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform.
Cadcorp will load and manage Ordnance Survey data for use with the Cadcorp Web Map Layers application. All changes and configuration to the application and server will be carried out by Cadcorp staff.
Cadcorp currently provide two options for hosted Ordnance Survey data for use with Web Map Layers: an Open Data Map Service, and a Premium Data Map Service
Cadcorp Open Data Map Service includes provision of the full Great Britain extents of the following data products:
- OS Street View
- OS Vector Map District
Based on a customer’s PSMA data licence Cadcorp Premium Data Map Service includes provision of the following data products:
- OS Mastermap Topographic Layer
- OS Vectormap Local Raster
- Vectormap District Raster
Extents of the data to be provided are defined by the customer, up to a limit of 10,000km2 (larger extents can be provided on request).
