GGP Systems has linked its geographic information system (GIS) to web mapping portals such as Google Maps and Bing Maps with a simple click-to-view tool. Designed to improve integration between GGP’s professional GIS and popular internet mapping services, it automatically links the current working window of the GGP GIS to the same location on the selected mapping services, opening up access to the additional intelligence offered by the different map layers available online.
Jeremy Thomas, business development manager, GGP Systems, said, “Imagine, for example, a council call centre dealing with hundreds of queries every day, each one relating to a specific location. By giving staff the ability to access additional intelligence, valuable time can be saved, improving resolution rates and raising customer satisfaction levels.”
Following a suggestion from Wyre Forest District Council, one of GGP’s customers, the link to web mapping script gives other GGP users easy access to an array of additional visual information on their work in progress locations including aerial photomaps, 3-D imagery and street-level 360-degree videos using Google StreetView.
