DeLorme has announced the release of XMap OpenSpace Database Integration Kit, which allows users to substantially boost efficiency by automatically updating the geographic data they are managing within DeLorme's OpenSpace database.

OpenSpace is DeLorme's physical data model that enables geodata storage in Microsoft SQL Server. XMap OpenSpace Database Integration Kit is for use with XMap/GIS Editor, DeLorme's advanced, yet affordable, Geographic Information System (GIS). The kit provides a DLL library that lets users link collected geodata directly to an OpenSpace GIS layer within XMap/GIS Editor. The OpenSpace Database Integration Kit is .NET enabled.

With XMap/GIS Editor, which is required to access the DeLorme OpenSpace database, GIS Managers can pre-classify and symbolize their layers prior to data collection. Then, using their own development environment, they can simply build a bridge between their database system and XMap/GIS Editor using XMap OpenSpace Database Integration Kit. 

Collected spatial data, linked to XMap/GIS Editor through the integration kit, will automatically display the new, pre-classified data against DeLorme map data or imagery (including DOQQ or satellite views). In addition, users can add new geographic objects to OpenSpace as they collect data.

XMap/GIS Editor provides full control over graphical representation based on OpenSpace data attribution rules. For example, users can set up the symbology of a layer with XMap/GIS Editor and vary map icon or polygon colors and size in relation to data changes. Object locations can also be automatically adjusted as data is presented to XMap/GIS Editor.

XMap OpenSpace Database Integration Kit promises significant potential for increased productivity in any type of operation where geodata is collected in the field-agriculture, aerial survey, energy, public safety, transportation, and public utilities, to name just a few. With the ability to automatically update and display crucial enterprise data, users can keep current with critical changes, thereby ensuring that vital decisions and planning are based upon the most recent information available.

Typical kinds of constantly changing data might include:

  • Aerial spraying activity
  • Cellular and broadband cellular coverage areas
  • Demographic statistics
  • High Consequence Area impact status
  • Readings from remote valves and sensors
  • Vehicle activity at key street and highway locations
