Maporama, a provider of location-centric applications, has announced the compatibility of its applications with Microsoft MapPoint 2002 software. This functionality was developed within the framework of Maporama GIS Initiative.
With this new interface, Maporama’s customers using MS MapPoint 2002 avoid recurrent and fastidious tasks of collecting and geocoding of their address data by importing it directly from Maporama Partner Base, the central element of Maporama’s applications. Using this centralised database, companies treat, fine-tune, and extract their data, thereby overcoming any possible hassle with data updates and maintenance.
This data is then available to the MS MapPoint 2002 software, for example while carrying out geomarketing, logistics, and/or resource optimisation studies.
“This new outcome of the collaboration within Maporama GIS Partner Initiative provides companies with access to our state-of-the-art technology to complement the functionality of their MS MapPoint application. It is a revolutionary concept that allies the best of ASP-based location-centric applications and ‘classical’ GIS software, offering an excellent return on investment,” says Laurent Vermot-Gauchy, Maporama’s CEO.
Maporama’s location-centric engines handle the largest cartographic database available on the market and provide an excellent flexibility by offering the possibility to associate over 3200 attributes to each address entry. This capability allows for developing multiple expert applications directly from MS MapPoint and its development kit Visual Basic for Applications.
