December 12, 2012 -- Europa Technologies is pleased to announce that its award-winning viaEuropa service is being utilised for marine mapping from SeaZone Solutions.
HydroView Now offers global coverage of depth area features with shaded relief and intuitive depth soundings.
Working closely with SeaZone, Europa Technologies has deployed HydroView Now as a service with attractive cartography and the ability to consume the marine mapping in desktop GIS and web-based applications.
viaEuropa is an online service from Europa Technologies for the delivery of high quality digital maps direct to any application. A strong example of Data-as-a-Service (DaaS), viaEuropa bridges the chasm between raw data delivery and a finished map product ready for deployment, making it ideal for any organisation needing to deliver location intelligent applications whilst saving time and money by using standards-compliant shared services.
The viaEuropa deployment of HydroViewNow has been specifically designed to complement land-based mapping services, such as Google Maps or Microsoft Bing Maps. Available as a simple tile cache or Web Map Tile Service (WMTS), HydroView Now can be consumed by desktop software such as Esri ArcGIS (v10.1+) and MapInfo Professional (v10.5+), or with commercial/open source web mapping APIs.
HydroView Now on the viaEuropa platform is available directly from SeaZone. A Free-to-Use version of the service is also available from SeaZone.
Warren Vick, Founder and Director of Europa Technologies, said: “Using the viaEuropa platform, SeaZone'sHydroView Now can be quickly utilised by any organisation, public or private, seeking to deliver location intelligent marine-based applications via the desktop or web.”
Andrew Iwanoczko, Business Manager at SeaZone, said: “SeaZone engaged Europa Technologies as a result of its proven track record with the UK Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) and its delivery of the viaEuropa service. SeaZone is exceptionally happy with the launch of HydroView Now and looks forward to a long and fruitful collaboration.”
