YARMOUTH, Maine — DeLorme, a long-time leader in GIS innovation, continues to make deep inroads into the North American energy sector with its XMap GIS Enterprise software. The company today announced it has sold over 10,000 XMap licenses into the oil and gas, electric, solar, and wind energy markets.
“Achieving this milestone reinforces XMap’s reputation as a sensible GIS solution,” said Geoffrey Ives, Director of Professional Sales at DeLorme. “North American energy managers are using DeLorme’s software tools to increase productivity through GPS navigation, to provide controlled access to corporate Geodata, and to enhance safe decision-making in asset management.” Ives went on to say that XMap is rapidly gaining adherents in developing energy markets. “When deployed with a topographic land base map,” he continued, “XMap is perfect for site assessment and community collaboration presentations supporting wind and solar energy proposals.”
With XMap, DeLorme has staked out a position as an affordable, easy-to-use alternative to many of the highly expensive, difficult-to-master GIS packages on the market. The XMap Enterprise GIS suite is a three-tiered solution that puts just the right level of capabilities into its intended users’ hands, from field technicians to GIS administrators to top-level enterprise managers.
Along with DeLorme’s award winning Topographic and street base-map, XMap provides a wide range of GIS capabilities, including:
