Hitachi Software Global Technology, Ltd. (HSGT) has announced the release of Any*GIS Version 2.0, the GIS platform enabling any spatial data to anyone, anywhere.
Any*GIS Version 2.0 offers several new functions to its Open GIS framework, including new Market Management and Facility Management modules. Both modules significantly extend the existing functionality of Any*GIS, allowing users to leverage the power of spatial analysis for critical business activities.
The Market Management module provides support for sales and marketing activities through spatial filtering, buffer analysis, and geocoding. This tool is especially helpful in leveraging the power of spatial information for marketing analysis and sales forecasting. The Facility Management module offers support for network topology and tracing, project management functions and drawing management functions. These functions allow users to create, manage and maintain spatial features of any network-based data environment (i.e. electric and gas utilities).
In addition, Any*GIS Version 2.0 presents considerable improvements to core functionality, including new data transmission routines and symbology enhancements. These improvements provide better client performance and enhance the user’s ability to visualize custom mapping functions.
