Plainsboro, New Jersey, USA, 16 May 2006 – MapText, Inc. announced that South Carolina Department of Transportation (DOT) has successfully integrated its Label-EZ and Label-Web text placement solutions for desktop and web mapping applications. The GIS and mapping group within South Carolina DOT is responsible for developing, implementing, and maintaining a comprehensive and integrated GIS, and incorporating the department’s Linear Referencing System (LRS).
The mapping group used to generate the maps using a system based around MGE / Microstation. The department is currently in the process of migrating all mapping activity to a GeoMedia-based solution and is using Label-EZ in that workflow. Label-EZ has already been used for generating functional class maps and other projects are in the pipeline. The Integrated Transportation Management System (ITMS) web application had a need for a solution that provided paper-map quality labeling in a dynamic web environment.
Label-Web offered the solution that SC-DOT was looking for. With its seamless and quick integration into GeoMedia WebMap applications, Label-Web demonstrated the aesthetic, high-quality label placement that is critical for the success of the application. In addition to being integrated into the ITMS application, the Label-Web solution is also used in the Resurfacing Project web application, which provides the public with the most up-to-date information about the various projects being undertaken by the DOT.
