Bentley Systems Incorporated released Bentley Geo Web Publisher 2004 Edition, a high-performance Internet server that enables local or regional governments, utilities, communication providers and other organizations to develop and deploy customized Internet sites offering public access to spatially indexed content. To speed implementation, an intelligent website design wizard guides choices for layout, colors, display controls, tools and other interface elements. In addition, the wizard gives site administrators a tool to help them manage content to be published. Possible applications include municipal information systems, image or drawing archives, map-based navigational sites, project sites and public information portals. Because it publishes hybrid vector/raster data sets and more than 30 formats, Bentley Geo Web Publisher lets the developers of these sites easily add drawings, maps, models, aerial photography and images-providing user-targeted browser presentations. Additional features of Bentley Geo Web Publisher include: robust tools for viewing, printing, plotting, and redlining raster and vector data; and the ability to query database information. Client and server-side applications can be developed with standard web programming tools such as Java, HTML and ASP, or can be customized with MicroStation Development Language (MDL) or Picture Script Scene (PSS).
