eMapSite Provides New Hosted and Managed Mapping Service

July 29, 2005 -- eMapSite, a leading UK digital mapping provider, has launched a new hosted and managed mapping service called eMapXpress aimed at customers who purchase a corporate license for OS national datasets.

eMapXpress is a unique service that delivers OS mapping to all licensed users via the Web, enabling companies to gain better value and maximise usage of their mapping as an asset and resource as opposed to a consumable cost per project. The service extends the power of mapping beyond the traditional GIS and CAD community to decision makers, managers, technicians or general users who simply require a backdrop map to insert into a document or report.

eMapXpress provides an efficient data management tool and a central source for all mapping data purchased by a company in a searchable data library that can be listed by both project and location. The service also automates all maintenance, updates and copyright licensing. When a data set is updated it becomes immediately available to all users, ensuring they are all using the latest information. The data is hosted on eMapSite’s servers at their London data centre that users access from their desktop by logging onto www.emapsite.com using a secure username and password.

One company that has recently signed up is Scott Wilson, who have chosen to receive the OS 1:50,000 scale Landranger mapping as a hosted service. “eMapXpress outsources the management and costs of what is a large data set (90GB uncompressed) and opens up the data to all GIS and CAD users as well as all staff that simply want a map. “ said Katrina Haase from Scott Wilson’s Information Systems department, “The service will reduce the duplication of mapping data across the Group, making the purchase and availability of the data more cost effective”.

Other companies that have already signed up for the service include RPS, Atkins, WSP and Faber Maunsell.
