November 11, 2009 -- UK GIS supplier GGP Systems has launched a new version of its web based GIS. Designed to make up to the minute local authority service information readily accessible via the Internet, eGGP 2009 provides access to data held in spatial database formats and supports national initiatives such as t-Government and Communities in Control. The software has a new-look user interface with advanced mapping functionality and a faster more refined online experience underpinned by a reworked map rendering engine. eGGP 2009 also provides improved security with sophisticated user authentification and account management.
“In this digital age we all expect answers in an instant,” commented Tim Maxwell, Managing Director of GGP Systems. “For Councils this can be a mammoth task providing citizens with access to information ranging from ‘where’s my nearest recycling centre’ to ‘am I in a conservation area’. eGGP 2009 enables the online delivery of easy to understand, up to the minute service level information meeting many of the aspirations of the Communities in Control Agenda - primarily by providing easy access to clearly presented information letting people know what has happened and what is being planned in their local area.”
eGGP 2009 includes the ability to access and display data held in a variety of spatial database formats. Supporting a drive towards shared services this builds on the work undertaken by GGP Systems to develop solutions to the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) international standards. eGGP 2009 also offers improved security with user log in and authentification allowing defined control of access to information. With four ‘user levels’ – home, group, department and corporate – this ensure sensitive information is only accessible to authorised users. Advanced map query options including polygon based querying and distance and area measurement tools together with a reworked map rendering engine
