HOUSTON, Texas, 7 August 2007 – Geodynamic Solutions Inc. (GSI), a wholly owned subsidiary of LandWorks Inc., today introduced Layer Wizard, an ArcGIS extension that enables GIS users to quickly find data layers based on themed categories, workspace locations, or metadata searches. The Layer Wizard extension can replace the Add Data’ button on the ArcGIS® toolbar for users needing more robust access to a variety of data-layer search, preview and access functions.
“Layer Wizard is the solution for anyone who needs a fast and simple approach to retrieving their spatial data,” said Sam Marcello, GSI Business Development Manager. “Geodynamic Solutions designed the Layer Wizard for GIS users who have very large numbers of data layers stored across multiple ArcSDE® instances, personal geodatabases, or shapefiles throughout their enterprise.”
Layer Wizard dramatically improves the efficiency of GIS projects by allowing users to quickly query, find and add any layer and its preferred symbology to ArcGIS. Users are able to logically organize their data layers by one or more categories, retrieving multiple symbologies for the same layer which are easily previewed before adding them to the current ArcGIS session.
“The Layer Wizard is designed to enable GIS users to dig deep down into their spatial databases and quickly find the exact data they need,” said Marcello. “The interface is highly intuitive to accommodate the end user’s unique approach to storing, accessing and working with geospatial data.”
Layer Wizard comes complete with an Administrator application that allows one or more designated users to control the configuration of the main user interface and workspace. The Administrator can establish standardized symbology and file naming conventions across the entire enterprise and can also limit specific database access to various end users.
