23 April 2008, CALGIS Event, Modesto California, eSpatial, a leading provider of enterprise geospatial software and solutions today announced the availability of its latest Geospatial software product iSMART ® 5.4, the most advanced Web 2.0 GIS platform available in the market today.
iSMART® provides both an out of the box web GIS and application development capability to deliver pure-web based multi-user business applications incorporating GIS functionality and web services in standard Enterprise IT environments. iSMART is the most comprehensive solution to complement Oracle's Spatial technology platform and is fast becoming the first choice for Oracle Spatial. iSMART 5.4 provides enhanced functionality that takes advantage of the new capabilities offered in the latest Oracle database release, Oracle 11g.
With iSMART 5.4, all functions, including editing, are available in a pure web environment (using AJAX) with no active-X control, plug-in, applet or download needed in the browser. The pure web editing includes enhanced features such as the digitizing and editing of multi-geometries and arcs as well as new dynamic snapping, Auto-trace and Union facilities. This provides the ability to deliver browser based, integrated business applications featuring user editing, viewing and analytical capabilities, usually only available in traditional desktop GIS and CAD tools.
The new Web Editing technology is already being used by leading Telecommunications company, Verizon, as a core component of a new network planning application called VEGA (Verizon Enterprise Geospatial Application). This application won the prestigious “GITA 2008 Innovator Award”. Verizon Communications Inc. is one of the largest Telecommunications Companies in the world with revenues of $88 Billion in 2006.
Other major enhancements to iSMART include a new Query Builder including support for spatial queries and retrieval of saved queries, new visualisation capabilities including symbols from custom fonts, mouse-over map tips and enhanced labelling including labels generated via SQL queries and label rotation. iSMART 5.4 now also supports Apache Tomcat.
Philip O’Doherty, eSpatial CEO, “eSpatial is excited with this latest iSMART release as we are leading the way in the delivery of web-based, enterprise grade geospatial solutions. We believe this release is the best Web GIS available today. The web editing functionality in iSMART takes this technology to the next level and integrates powerful and robust editing and management capabilities into standard online business applications. Significant cost savings are possible in terms of reduced client licenses and reduced development, deployment, and maintenance costs with improved productivity and information sharing across the organization”.
