Geoxphere’s Xmap is a native cloud-based web application that can be accessed from any web-enabled device, without plug-ins, bolt-ons or additional installations.
In addition to a suite of services specifically designed for housing and local government users, Xmap also supports joined-up governance by making it easy for housing providers and local authorities to share GIS data between same-tier organisations for shared-service applications and between tiers for the delivery of powers and duties at a community level.
Chris Mewse, managing director, Geoxphere, said, “Despite significant achievements over the past two years, seamless remote working still has its challenges when it comes to geospatial services and applications. Not limited to broadband speed, these can include slow local hardware, slow support from IT contractors and the use of VPNs. Xmap overcomes those barriers via an easy-to-use, easy-to-consume, GIS service that can be accessed through any web browser.”
As a true cloud-based solution for accessing, manipulating and sharing geospatial data, Xmap already has over 4,000 daily users. Xmap supports remote working by removing barriers including unlimited usage, encrypted and secure data storage, and integration with other services such as EDRM software, planning portals and open-source GIS.
Ashley Crow, GIS officer, North East Derbyshire District Council, said, “Using Xmap Cloud GIS has transformed our use and application of GIS. We now have over 250 users with access to over 500 mapping datasets.
“XMAP has helped us streamline our GIS data management, ensuring our users get the correct, up-to-date information. This shift away from traditional desktop GIS has saved money and increased the usability of GIS data.”
