RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO, CANADA – May 14, 2007 – The latest version of Orion Technology Inc.’s flagship product, OnPoint 6, continues to take Web-GIS solutions to a whole new level. The robust and easy-to-enhance platform has allowed for rapid development and enhancement of OnPoint, resulting in the ability to add functionality rapidly and effectively. OnPoint 6 comes in two flavours, Standard Edition and Enterprise Edition, and can now connect to more spatial data sources including ESRI’s ArcIMS, ArcSDE, and ArcGIS Server, OGC (WMS & WFS), Microsoft MapPoint, Pictometry, and more. It also connects to all non-spatial data in Oracle, SQL Server, and any other ODBC compliant database to allow user interaction.
Highlighting OnPoint 6’s newest enhancements are product extensions for Pictometry and Microsoft Virtual Earth. Pictometry images provide users with a new perspective, offering oblique aerial images from a variety of different angles. The Pictometry extension for OnPoint allows users to view Pictometry imagery over the web within OnPoint, including the tools to change the oblique perspective being displayed. It also allows for the use of standard Pictometry measure tools from within OnPoint to measure distances, areas, elevation, and more. Users can also apply the Pictometry image as an interface, essentially allowing them to identify off the oblique image, retrieving related GIS or business system data using OnPoint’s multi-level join capabilities.
The Microsoft Virtual Earth extension to OnPoint provides users with a wealth of road network, landmark, oblique, and street level imagery that they do not need to build and maintain. A primary advantage is being able to overlay all locally managed GIS database content with Virtual Earth imagery, essentially allowing the user to click on the imagery and receive attributes through OnPoint’s GIS layers and joined business systems. The extension also offers the ability to route throughout road networks – searching with specific parameters in OnPoint and designating the results as Start/End points in routing using Virtual Earth.
The newest release of OnPoint provides enhanced out-of-the-box implementation capabilities, advanced security, powerful administration tools for customizing and managing your web portal, and unparalleled data and application integration features.
