Continuing our theme around how Getmapping’s solutions can support our customers in safely returning to work, we’re showcasing Getmapping’s ultra-fast Web Mapping Service (WMS). WMS is an ideal tool to allow remote workers to continue to access geospatial data away from the office.
WMS provides a fast and reliable service that ensures that your teams are all accessing the same data, wherever they are. The ability to host all your static non-proprietal geospatial datasets in the cloud enables you to work remotely over mobile and Wi-Fi networks, accessing the latest aerial imagery and PSMA (now PSGA) data.
“There are a number of key benefits to Getmapping’s Web Mapping Services” explains Gavin Sullivan, Getmapping Technical Manager. “Getmapping’s WMS is widely recognised as the fastest streaming service available for geospatial data in the UK. Users can chose between the best available layer (i.e. the most recent data) and our entire archive of historical data from 1999 to date. There is no need to be physically in your office or at a specific location to interact with the data. As long as you have internet connectivity you can access the data wherever you are, supporting the safe return to work of your teams by enabling remote working.”
Getmapping have an unrivalled archive of aerial photography – we currently host and serve over 1.2 million km² of imagery of Great Britain.
Getmapping also host and serve all of the PSGA datasets as well, taking the burden of managing updates and serving these datasets off of your IT services and GIS departments. A further benefit of having the data in a centralised location for everyone in your organisation to use and not having data silos spread out throughout your organisation, this saves time when updates are available and provides a cost saving by having a single version of data remotely accessible to all.
“Getmapping ensure that the data that you access is always up to date, letting you focus on your business whilst we provide the data service” advises Helen Wattie, Getmapping’s European Sales Manager. "By remotely maintaining the data for your organisation, WMS provides a key support tool for remote working, and we are proud to have a strong track record of serving imagery and PSGA data to both the Commercial and Public Sectors for the last fifteen years."
