Cadcorp announces OS MasterMap® Address Layer 2 Manager


Stevenage, UK. 18 January 2008. – Digital mapping and geographic information systems (GIS) software developer Cadcorp has announced that its Cadcorp SIS – Spatial Information System product suite now includes a dedicated manager application for Ordnance Survey (OS) MasterMap Address Layer 2.

Delivered with Cadcorp SIS Map Modeller at no extra cost, the Cadcorp SIS OS MasterMap Address Layer 2 Manager is a standalone wizard-driven application that takes OS Address Layer 2 gzip and/or gml files and loads the Address Layer features into either an industry-standard database (spatial or non-spatial), or a Cadcorp data format. Support is provided for Oracle, PostGIS, Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Access. The capability complements support already provided by Cadcorp for the OS MasterMap Topography and Integrated Transport Network™(ITN) Layers.

“The new Cadcorp SIS OS MasterMap Address Layer 2 Manager extends our support for the OS MasterMap product range so that users of the data, irrespective of the scale of their GIS implementation, can cost-effectively import, manage and make available OS MasterMap data within desktop, intranet/Internet and mobile GIS environments, and ease the integration of OS MasterMap into existing back office systems,” said Martin Daly, technical director, Cadcorp. “Managing OS MasterMap Address Layer 2 data within Cadcorp SIS is now as easy as managing any of the other 160 plus geographic and CAD data sources that Cadcorp SIS supports”, he added.

Paula Langford-Smith, Ordnance Survey marketing manager said, “This is a great addition to the Cadcorp SIS portfolio and will enable customers to access Ordnance Survey’s world-class OS MasterMap Address Layer 2 product. Cadcorp has created a powerful tool for a variety of customers who need to integrate Address Layer 2 quickly and efficiently into their business processes – supporting the expanding number of Address Layer 2 users in government, the emergency services, land and property, insurance and utilities sectors.”
