Gaia brings multiple spatial sources on single platform

Burlington, US: The Carbon Project, a software company, developed ‘Gaia’. It is a platform for advanced geospatial network and spatial data infrastructure (SDI) needs. Based-on the CarbonTools PRO open-geospatial development toolkit, this viewer can access an array of geospatial sources such as the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Web Mapping Service (WMS), Web Map Tile Service (WMTS), Web Coverage Service (WCS), Web Feature Service (WFS), and Filter Encoding (FE), services such as Microsoft Bing Maps, Yahoo! Maps and OpenStreetMap (OSM), as well as file formats such as ESRI Shapefiles, Google Earth KML/KMZ, DXF, MIF, Geography Markup Language (GML) and GML Simple Features (GMLsf). 
With Gaia, users can use geospatial content from different sources and overlay them into a single map view, with each layer individually configured and styled. The Gaia multi-layer view allows seamless use of multiple layers of different types. Panning, zooming and other mapping tools provide a fast and convenient tool for browsing the map. Gaia uses dynamic caching of content to memory, providing enhanced mapping performance.
