A good map application depends on up-to-date and high quality geodata.
A lot of data has an implicit or explicit spatial context. Geographically referenced data provides additional value and allows numerous questions to be asked of your data.
We can do a number of things for you:
- Support with procurement of available geodata from appropriate providers
- Use of georeferenced sensors to transfer data in real-time into your application (SensorGIS)
- Digitisation of objects on the basis of aerial photographs or other base data
- Use of a variety of libraries to refine your existing geodata
- Implementation of a flexible, manageable, standardised and high-performance Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI)
OpenStreetMap is a free world map in whose compilation anybody can participate. The project was started in 2004 and is enjoying steadily increasing number of users. How it works is simple: Geographic data (streets, buildings, points-of-interest, etc.) gets mapped with GPS-devices and is uploaded to the OSM-servers. Due to the increasing numbers of users the map has steadily grown over the past years, too. OSM-data is available under the Creative-Commons-Attribution-ShareAlike-2.0-license and it can be used in a number of ways. terrestris is operating a Web Mapping Service (WMS) on the basis of OSM data that gets updated once a week. For more information regarding this service visit our OWS Server. Are you interested in a standardised service with individual themes and an individual style based on OSM data?
