Cloud Mapping Revolution Continues...

 

Oct 2, 2014 -- At GIS Cloud, we were always inspired to push online mapping to the next level, beyond its borders. There is a reason why there is the Cloud in GIS Cloud...the Cloud is said to make your life easier, and then...so can GIS Cloud. Benefits that Cloud offers are growing more and more, and Cloud related features that were perhaps uncertain couple of years ago like data volume and format, map performance and control of your data privacy is now pure practice.

When asking yourself what GIS is and how it could help you in your business or a project, one might think of a ‘school definition’ of what GIS represents...but GIS has become so much more. It infiltrates in so many spheres that were impossible before and so there is no simple GIS definition any more. Cloud has enabled a whole new dimension of GIS, continues to do so and from that perspective GIS definition is now versatile and adaptive depending on what you do. So where is GIS Cloud in Cloud GIS and how can it be adapted to you?

Handling the 'Big Data'

Let's start with the fact that GIS Cloud team has developed the fastest mapping technology available today. Besides being able to produce raster map tiles it is able to produce vector tiles as well which means even faster performance. Even if your map has thousands or millions of features, you can experience it with high user experience right in your browsers. But why would you limit yourself to the desktop only, when you can use smartphones, tablets and iPads, making your GIS an effective and interactive solution.

Effective solutions in Real Time

When working with maps and data in a system like GIS, user usually needs to create maps and projects and see results fast. Communication with the application, sending and retrieving data to your projects and maps is done in real time through GIS Cloud's REST API. Real time data handling gives the possibility of immediate response to different departments which means optimization of your work process.

Have hundreds and millions of features in your maps

Control your Data

Many barriers have been broken by moving GIS into the Cloud, making decision making, collaboration and data sharing fast, effective and safe. Exchange and contribution of information as well as data collection between departments is crucial for the goals to be achieved.GIS Cloud platform enables your entire organization to collaborate by using the same apps while having different levels of access. With defining different permissions for users within your organization you have a full control of privacy authoring for your data.
