Upload, View and Manage your GIS Based Spatial Infrastructure

OpenNRM powerful mapping tools allow users to develop and manage key GIS data layers from varying sources (personal libraries, consultants, government agencies, community, web services).   Combine GIS layers with a variety of base map options (including Google, Open Street Maps, Mapquest, Bing Maps etc.), datasets, feature data or anything from the geo-coded document library.  The data layers will be combined in an open architecture interactive map API to produce rich, editable and accessible maps, data layers and library assets.

The live map also allows users to view and interact with live services which stream the data directly from outside publishers web servers.  These services can include SOS or RESTFUL access to the USGS, USEPA, NOAA and other data provider live sensor networks for time series analysis of real time environmental conditions.

Other Important Map Tools Features Include:

  • GIS Uploader for shapefile management and styling.
  • Add and Manage GIS Web Services.
  • Manage, organize and display map layers.
  • Time series visualization tools. Create, view and share point models and interpolations over gridded networks.
  • Display multiple layers of map information in a single window.
  • Layers can be added and removed without having to regenerate the display.
  • Transparency of each layer can be adjusted to make layers below more visible through layers above.
  • Layers can be image based (GIF, JPG, PNG) or vector based (VML)
  • Layers can be sourced from a spatial database (Oracle Spatial, PostgreSQL, MySQL , ArcServer etc) via the spatial server.
  • Layers can be sourced from servers supporting the OGC- Web Map Service (WMS) or Web Feature Service (WFS) or through Web Service calls (OWS).
  • Layers can be sourced from existing GIS systems (ESRI, MapInfo) and map tiles from (Shape, TAB, MID/MIF etc).
  • Intuitive control of zoom, pan, draw, query, reset, save.
  • Feedback of coordinates and scale while interacting with the map.
  • Create, edit and store vector features (points, lines and polygons). Use extensive icon library for assigning feature data.
  • Add attributes to vector features and store to a spatial database.
  • Create map based articles and stories using your GIS library.

You will ultimately need “more than a map”.  Once created, maps are easily portable and associated to custom dashboards, projects, documents, wiki or map series.
