AltaMap Server: The Mapping Engine
The foundation of GeoMicro's products and solutions is AltaMap Server. AltaMap Server was designed from the ground up as a highly scalability, high performance mapping engine that provides geometry calculations, and map display.
With its multi threaded architecture, automatic resource pooling, and in-process communications, AltaMap Server's performance stands in stark contrast to other products that offer similar functionality.
AltaMap Server is a stateless server that is highly flexible and modular. A series of components for Geocoding, Routing, Real Time Traffic, and Mobile Clients can be integrated seamlessly. You only license the modules as required. The complete suite of modules forms the AltaMap LBS Platform which allows you to determine current locations on a map, navigate you from one point to another, find what's around you, and enforce business rules. In addition it is available at the point of need in an office, or in the field.
AltaMap Server is much more than Dynamic Mapping which allows you to visualize data. AltaMap server creates actionable information, and allows for smarter decisions throughout the operations of an enterprise. Key business processes provided by AltaMap Server are roughly grouped into four categories:
- Display: View Cartographic quality maps.
- Alerts and Analysis: Enforce Business Rules, Report on Exceptions, and Compare Performance
- GeoSearch - Find assets, businesses, or customers through any search criteria,
- GeoFencing: Create virtual fences of areas or along routes
AltaMap Server interoperates well with other enterprise software such as Web Servers, DBMSs, and Microsoft's enterprise application framework .NET. AltaMap Server is a comprehensive GIS toolkit for enterprise application developers and is used to build distributed enterprise information systems.
A customer once said that many companies can claim a feature or service runs fast under certain circumstances, however, what is more important is how well many services work together as a unit under constantly changing production environment. AltaMap Server has been tested in the field for by multiple billion dollar organizations. Not only does AltaMap pass, but it usually exceeds expectations.
