A Partnership to provide added value to custom online mapping solutions
Ottawa, ON, May 18, 2005 - DM Solutions Group, a leading provider of smart online mapping solutions and developer of MapTools open source technologies and DMTI Spatial?, Canada’s leading provider of comprehensive geospatial products and services, today announced that DM Solutions Group will resell DMTI Spatial data through a partnership agreement. DM Solutions Group will be offering Maps for MapServer, including DMTI Spatial’s CanMap® data preconfigured for use with custom online mapping solutions as a new product.
The preconfigured and styled map data will provide high quality and performance street maps optimized to run with MapServer technology. With this new product, DM Solutions Group customers and partners requiring high quality Canadian maps for their mapping solution will no longer be required to configure and maintain this data on their own for use with MapServer. As the primary developer of MapTools technologies, customers and partners will also be assured of maps that leverage the most advanced cartographic capabilities available in MapServer with each release of the software and DMTI Spatial data.
“Partnering with DMTI allows us to include high quality Canadian maps to our product offerings and solutions for our customers,” said David McIlhagga, DM Solutions Group president. “High quality data is a critical component of any mapping solution, and we believe this is an important step in providing value and choice to our customers and partners.”
The recently launched interactive carpool mapping tool through Ride-Share.com is an excellent example of an organization leveraging the ability to seamlessly integrate DMTI Spatial data with MapServer technology. DM Solutions Group included DMTI Spatial’s data with a solution based on the MapTools MapServer and Chameleon technologies, creating a powerful mapping tool.
“Our partnership with DM Solutions Group provides us the opportunity to gain greater access to markets that we previously lacked a presence in,” said Ted Lennox, DMTI Spatial’s vice president of sales & marketing. “By incorporating CanMap into their MapServer solution, organizations will receive the highest quality Canadian map data available when developing their custom online mapping solution.”
Through this partnership agreement DM Solutions Group will be reselling the majority of DMTI Spatial products. This is a first step of many that the company is taking to enhance its online mapping products and services offerings based on MapTools open source technologies. Watch for additional products and services to come! For more information on Maps for MapServer and a preview of DMTI maps visit http://www.dmsolutions.ca/services/maps.html.
