(March 3, 2011/Harrisburg, Pa.) GeoDecisions, an award-winning leader in the information technology industry specializing in geospatial solutions, has released version 7 of its patented IRRIS technology. IRRIS 7 has transformed the way users perform their daily missions by simplifying workflows and providing powerful spatial analysis capabilities while significantly improving performance.
IRRIS 7 has dramatically improved the user experience. Built on the ArcGIS® 10 platform and utilizing Flex API, improvements include simplified data queries and faster map creations. The enhanced performance of IRRIS 7 is the result of improved cache generation and management, as well as optimized web graphics. These caching and web graphic upgrades translate into more responsive drawing performance, including smooth, continuous panning of data.
One of the most significant improvements to IRRIS 7 is that the application does not require loading a new page each time the user makes significant changes to a view. Users can add and remove layers very quickly without a page refresh. In addition, mapping drilldowns have been eliminated with the inclusion of a tile-based layer search feature. Workflows are greatly improved with simplified query capabilities, an integrated routing interface, and more options to save maps, layers, and locations.
IRRIS was originally developed for the U.S. Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, a component command of U.S. Transportation Command, to track, manage, and document the movement of surface cargo transported throughout the world. Today, the portal serves a number of federal and state agencies. For more information, visit www.irris.com.
