December 07, 2011 -- Dotted Eyes has taken another step closer to offering complete desk-based GIS functionality through its web mapping platform, RMX4, with the launch of its new web-based attribute editing feature.
At the click of a mouse, this innovative new feature allows RMX4 users to easily edit attributes within the online map and instantly share this information with others. This will help make online mapping even more accessible to individuals across all roles. Instead of relying on GIS professionals to update attributes through a desktop client, it allows individuals to easily do this from an Intranet browser.
Built on top of a single, open source technology stack, RMX4 is the latest web mapping solution to be offered by Dotted Eyes, the UK’s leading GIS development house. By providing individuals with a user-friendly interface to self-serve data securely online, it is helping simplify web mapping and make it a cost effective solution for all.
Dotted Eyes has created different versions of RMX4, such as Local Government Portal, that are designed for the specific needs of individual sectors. Within the Local Government sector, in particular, it is proving to be extremely popular due to the cost savings and efficiencies it is helping these organisations to generate.
Ben Allan, CEO of Dotted Eyes, commented: “Our brand new web-based attribute editing feature is just the first step to us delivering the sophisticated and complete functionality of desk-based GIS functionality from the web. This truly innovative feature is one of many new exciting features we will be adding to RMX4 over the coming year.”
Examples of how organisations will now use the web-based attribute editing feature include call centre staff using it to highlight streets where snow clearance or gritting has been completed or specific locations where fly-tipping have been reported.
Ben added: “This feature will be of a real benefit to organisations with remote workers, especially as we plan to further develop it to enable status or task updating via tablets. For example, street cleaners would be able to use it to instantly update council staff on their progress in dealing with items like fly tipping, graffiti or even dog mess.”
