Maps and GIS Services
Geographic information and geolocation-based services are becoming pervasive in many applications. Web or mobile applications are a great way to provide map and GIS functionality to a large user base, either internally to expand access to geographic information or externally to share information with customers, partners and the public. Well-designed web mapping applications that operate on a wide range of devices and screen sizes can be delivered quickly using configurable application templates. Application and map data can be delivered internally using GIS server technology or can be hosted in the cloud, eliminating the need for costly IT infrastructure and server software. Whether it’s a simple web application with built-in maps or a more complex GIS web application, we have gained many years of experience in designing, configuring and developing web-based mapping solutions for small and large users. In addition to helping in the design and development of web mapping applications, we can contribute by providing support over server technology, including proven corporate GIS platform solutions from vendors like Google and Bing or open source alternatives. We can also fully host the solution in the cloud or provide a hybrid strategy adding cloud technology to your infrastructure.
PostgreSQL is a powerful open source object relational database system with over 15 years of active development, available with an open source license. One of the main advantages of PostgreSQL is that it is highly customizable. PostgreSQL executes stored procedures in more than a dozen programming languages, including Java, Node.js and Python or its PL / pgSQL, which is similar to Oracle’s PL / SQL. It can be run on all major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX and Windows. PostgreSQL has been designed and created to have much lower maintenance and optimization requirements, while maintaining high standards of reliability, stability and performance. PostgreSQL is extremely responsive in environments with high volumes of traffic and data, thanks to a proven architecture that has earned it a solid reputation for reliability, data integrity and correctness. We have gained great familiarity with this tool and use PostgreSQL (and its extension for geographic data PostgreGIS) as a valid alternative to proprietary relational database management solutions in a wide range of application domains, especially when it comes to processing information of geometric or geographical nature.
