23 Jan SuperGIS Server 3.3
In the world of GIS, there is no doubt that a lot of information and data is not just stored, but it is also used. In fact, all types and kinds of data sets are fed into systems on a constant, 24 X 7 X 365 basis. But, you may be wondering, just exactly where is all of it stored? Well, a lot depends upon the GIS that is providing these datasets, and also in large part, on the customer who is using it.
In many instances, these gargantuan data sets are stored in what is known as “Central Servers.” Simply put, these are computing devices which can process a huge volume of transactions in just a very short period. In fact, one of the most popular servers used in this regard is that of the SuperGIS Server 3.3. It is manufactured by a GIS Vendor known as Supergeo.
Some of the key advantages that this technology possesses are as follows:
- Much more effective mapping of data sets to a local workstation or even a mobile device;
- Greater network connectivity which means that large datasets can be downloaded in just a matter of a few seconds;
- Spatial information analyses are greatly enhanced;
- Both 2D and 3D mapping environments will be combined into one entity, thus giving a real-life perspective on landmarks and terrains;
- This same, combined mapping feature will also be applied to the various topographic models;
- Cross functionality across all major types of hardware are now available such as those of PCs, Mac systems, mobile phones, and tablet computers;
- A tool called ‘Web Mapper” is also included. This allows for the GIS professional to map their own customized, Web based tools directly to the SuperGIS Server, and have the data sets fed into it automatically.
But here is the best news: It is expected that the next release of the SuperGIS Server will be released in 2017. This will be version 10! Stay tuned!
