Providing navigation system, LBS, Internet Map, and GIS projects for applications in various fields, SMAP has confronted some difficulties such as considerable time in managing and categorizing a large sum of data. With the adoption of SuperGIS Desktop, the enterprise can download the data from the server to SuperGIS Desktop and directly digitize or modify the maps and subsequently improve the accessibility and management of digital maps as well as the competitiveness among its counterparts.
SMAP collects the map data in two ways; one is to collect field data, such as POI files of GIS formats, satellite imagery, digital line layers, etc, and the other is to purchase the latest satellite imagery. However, the traditional workflow not only takes the corporation much money and time to manage and transfer the data, but also decreases the efficiency of making maps.
In the past, when digitalizing the maps, the cartographers needed to store the imagery and various types of data which would be the references in the standalone computer. Then, the cartographers could open the needed data in the standalone computer to draw maps. However, in this way, the enterprise had to repeatedly purchase the same data for multiple cartographers;
In order to solve these problems, SMAP adopts SuperGIS Server as the centralized platform of data storage, management, and distribution. All of the data that would be needed in the mapping process are integrated to the server.
Offering a combination of abundant GIS tools and an efficient environment where cartographers can display, edit, manage, and query the spatial data and related information, SuperGIS Server effectively integrate and manage all of the needed files and data and publish the data through the Internet. In this way, the cartographers can apply the client applications supported by SuperGIS Server, like SuperGIS Desktop, to download the data from the server to the local host to draw the maps. Meanwhile, SMAP can considerably simplify the data management and cut down the costs.
By utilizing SuperGIS Server to be the platform centrally storing, managing, and publishing the map data, the enterprise not only enables cartographers to connect to the server through the web, downloading the data via local machines and uploading digitalized maps to the server, but also manage and control the map data with ease.
With the application of SuperGIS Server, SMAP Technologies substantially improve the accessibility and management of digital maps and is proceeding to be one of the map supplier leaders in Southeast Asia and even the whole Asia.
