DeLorme Launches XMap® 7 GIS with Form-Based Data Collection and Automatic Two-Way Synchronization

XMap Forms module streamlines data collection in the field and enables effortless, cost-effective data sharing enterprise-wide. Includes data collection support for Earthmate PN-Series handheld GPS receivers.

YARMOUTH, Maine — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 10, 2009 — DeLorme, the innovation leader in mapping, geographic data, GIS, and GPS technology, today announced the release of XMap 7. This latest edition includes XMap Forms, a versatile new form-based GIS data collection and editing feature, with automatic two-way data synchronization between administrators and field personnel.

XMap is a three-tiered GIS and GPS platform that addresses key functional levels within an organization’s GIS infrastructure. XMap 7 GIS Enterprise was developed for GIS and IT administrators; XMap 7 GIS Editor offers easy-to-use standalone GIS management and analysis tools, and XMap 7 Professional provides mobile field forces with versatile data viewing and, with an optional XMap Forms license, data collection capabilities.

XMap Forms is an add-on module that enables efficient field GIS data editing and collection in any of the three XMap tiers and on an Earthmate® PN-Series GPS receiver. One copy of XMap 7 GIS Enterprise and the appropriate XMap Forms license is required to create an XMap Form and to transfer the form to other XMap users through network database synchronization.

XMap Forms provide user-friendly, HTML-based access to GIS layers for editing or adding new data and include an API toolkit for building custom forms. Two-way remote synchronization ensures that field data is efficiently integrated into corporate GIS databases.

All three XMap 7 tiers now provide direct transfer of GIS layers and XMap Forms to a DeLorme Earthmate PN-Series handheld GPS receiver. On the device, drop-down lists, check boxes, and simple text entry can be used to populate the attribute table for new or updated GIS records.

A Wealth of Additional New Features and Capabilities

XMap 7 also offers the following upgrades:

  • Advanced document embedding and editing
  • Polygon edge-matching tool
  • Support for GPX files on the PN-Series GPS receiver
  • KML support − export GIS layers in KML format for display in Google Earth or Google Maps
  • Updated symbol set (e.g. wind turbine, oil derrick)
  • Direct exchange of data between XMap‘s GIS tab and a PN-Series GPS receiver
  • Improved GIS layer data management and control when transferring to a PN-Series receiver
  • Optional World Base Map at 1:250,000, with consistent, seamless detail worldwide

Support for ArcMap, MrSID, GeoTIFF, and DeLorme Map Library Files

Both XMap software and Earthmate PN-Series receivers enable visualization of a variety of geographic data formats including third-party GIS layers, ArcMap raster views, and DeLorme topographic and street data. Users can also display DeLorme Map Library data layers including USGS quad maps, Canadian government topographic maps, and multiple aerial imagery options, as well as freely available imagery in MrSID and GeoTIFF formats.
