Viewers and Map Servers

Viewers and Map Servers

Many organizations are already taking advantage of the web to do business, both in terms of promotion of products and services as well as operational support.

The introduction of the geographic viewer, or geoportal, fulfils the double objective of linking the client to the products and services offered using geographical proximity and of allowing distribution of information within the organization.

The success factors for this kind of projects deal with:

  • Comprehensive solution that considers the different repositories and sources of geographical information that are available.
  • Interoperability with other corporate systems.
  • Accessibility by different user profiles.

GRUPO TECOPY’s proposal is based on the implementation of a Spatial Data Infrastructure (IDE) through the integration of open source components and/or commercial bundles.

GRUPO TECOPY’s solution guarantees the following:

  • Extensibility: Allowing the augmentation of its functional and contents
  • Distribution: Ensuring response times and quality of the information, as well as accessibility by a large number of users.
  • Integration with other organizations and entities: By means of standard interoperability mechanisms, different sources of information can be integrated and their update guaranteed.
  • Cost optimization: Limiting the cost of software licenses.
  • No affiliation with a software manufacturer: Free to carry out continued maintenance.
  • Sustainability and maintenance: During the change-over, the complete transfer of ownership of the software is guaranteed.

A few examples of projects carried out by GRUPO TECOPY:

  • Street map of Valladolid. Internet Urban Guide oriented both toward civil servants in the town hall as well as toward the citizen and allowing them to locate of specific locations as well as public installations.
  • Carto-Ciudad (Carto-City). A set of services which allow one to access a national street map. It is the result of the integration of information contributed by different public organs which has lead to a Geographical Information System about continuous road networks as well as national censal and postal information.
  • Hydrocarbon Geoportal. It allows one to consult fuel prices and timetables of service stations in real-time by means of a map service provided by the Geographical National Institute accessible on the Internet or from any mobile device such as GPS, PDA's, etc.
