Customer GeoPortal: Business Edition


With Customer GeoPortal: Business Edition integrate your municipal data to develop a common operating picture across your municipality. Municipal documents, tabular databases, and web applications/services are integrated and made easily accessible.

Like the Map Edition, the Business Edition provides GeoViewer for map visualization and discovery, and DataViewer for your business data query and reporting. In addition, the Business Edition provides DocumentViewer for document / content access and management. And all your data can stay in their existing databases. DataViewer and DocumentViewer can work with most commercial content database/systems available.

Migrating from the Map Edition to Business Edition is easy. Start small or large; with a few map layers to hundreds of layers and dozens of related business content sources and databases. Regardless of the complexity and amount of data in the service, the system remains the same.

What's more, the Business Edition subscription fees are the same as Map Edition. Your base subscription costs stay the same.

GeoPortal provides key functionality to access, visualize, search and query your spatial, tabular and document data, including:

  • Integrate map features to data set records. For example, find properties within a kilometer, and link to a spreadsheet with the property ownership details so that the owners can be identified.
  • Integrate the data set records to related map layer features. Query data and map the result. 
  • Integrate both map features and data set records to their related documents/reports in DocumentViewer.  For example, identify a property on the map and access its related development plan, plan of survey, photos of the site, etc. 
  • Integrate map features and data set records with related web services.
  • Create and save queries and reports to run any time, enabling you to quickly ask common questions.
  • Export query / report results to Excel for further statistical analysis and charting.
  • Create a document content structure for direct access from DataViewer and GeoViewer.
  • Maintain, add, rename documents and other unstructured content within an easily navigable structure for all users.
  • Organize content in different views (Topics) for different departments or programs – so, for example, have separate topics for facilities staff, program delivery, and policy development - and control who sees what information.
