IntelData Inc. and PlanGraphics Inc. launched NIMA-wide the latest version of the web- enabled Graphical GeoSearch tool for the Voyager Integrated Library System. The enhanced version provides users with access to map and chart data on the NIMA’s internal secret network and provides features for accelerated performance across low bandwidth connections and a revolutionary user-messaging facility.
The Graphical GeoSearch Application, developed by PlanGraphics and IntelData, currently provides web-based geographical search methods for various mapping, charting, geodetics and intelligence-related products. With version 2.1, developers at PlanGraphics have incorporated a function that allows users to register to be automatically advised by email if any of their regions of geographic interest have been updated or modified in the library database system. The user can then choose to request a new data set of the updated maps and charts located in their specific area of interests or to re-query the database using different metadata parameters.
