Decatur, AL, USA: – January 21, 2009 – 3-GIS, a GIS software development and services firm based in North Alabama has introduced its new product, Network Express, which is a browser-based engineering solution that provides fully operational editing and viewing features. Built on the ESRI ArcGIS Server technology, Network Express allows users to plan, design and manage their asset data within a work order environment utilising the internet. It runs in Adobe FlashPlayer and is built with Adobe Flex giving a modern user experience that declutters the working environment and provides a function-driven work flow for faster documentation and design.
“Network Express is the entire reason for the creation of 3-GIS,” says Tom Counts, 3-GIS President. “The desire to edit GIS data from the Internet has been a customer request for years; it is only just now that the technology has matured to a level to make that request a reality. We are excited to be the first to deliver this technology to our core market.”
3-GIS focuses its products on the utility (electric distribution and transmission, gas, water and wastewater), telecommunications and Homeland Security markets. This new addition to the 3-GIS product line will allow each of these markets the ability to design, build, document, and maintain entire networked enterprise models. In conjunction with the 3-GIS mobile product, Field Express Chameleon, the customer will now be able to design a work order in the office, take the design to the field and make as-built adjustments. The user can then post the changes back to the work order for final approval and commitment to the central data repository in a seamlessly integrated GIS environment. Network Express also provides robust functionality for tracing, plotting, reporting and embedded Schematic Generation for accurate analysis and design; as well as quality assurance.
