DynamicMaps Web Mapping/GIS is a software tool from CADline for organisations that want to improve relationships with their local community. It allows employees and contractors (and can allow the public) to contribute to the quality of the data and feel part of the service process delivered to the community. It allows users to report incidents or events quickly and easily without the need for expensive face to face meetings or complex form filling procedures.
We have taken advantage of the dramatic improvements in Web Mapping in recent years to build a comprehensive set of Mapping and GIS applications which interact with most existing back office systems. CRM, planning, environmental services and housing are just some examples of the type of data that can be viewed, used and reported on quickly and easily.
The DynamicMaps Web GIS products have been developed to use either Google Maps or Microsoft’s Virtual Earth (Bing Maps).Together with an easy to use yet powerful interface the DynamicMaps mapping applications allow many and varied datasets to be published over the internet quickly and clearly.
Multiple layers of data can be viewed concurrently so it’s easy to find the points of interest nearest to any given location, e.g. schools, libraries, doctors etc. with detailed information about these points of interest available at a click of the mouse. Information can be in many (and multiple) forms from words and pictures to video (multimedia). You can even add links to other web sites or applications.
There are some powerful search facilities to help locate the area of interest as quickly and accurately as possible. Address and location searches can be based on any dataset including the British Standard National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) which is updated by all local authorities in the UK.
The tools are so intuitive that the majority of people will need no training or guidance at all. Online help together with video tutorials are on hand to provide assistance where necessary.
Much of the DynamicMaps Web interface is configurable so the site administrator can decide which data subjects are viewable and what terminology and labels should be used. This ability is a seriously powerful function which allows organisations to manage their own published data without having to pay consultants every time a web page needs changing.
