Toolkit Enables Rich Client Functionality in a Browser
MINNEAPOLIS–ObjectFX® Corporation, a leader in delivering dynamic geospatial solutions, today announced availability of SpatialFX® 4.2, an upgrade to its flagship geospatial software platform. The release follows successful beta testing by customers and partners in defense, geospatial intelligence, transportation logistics and other industries.
New features available with SpatialFX 4.2 include:
“Drag to pan” map panning which allows users to drag the map image in any direction.
Ability to fuse large amounts of data and large numbers of dynamic objects into the map view while maintaining optimum performance in a Web environment.
Ability to display multiple map views simultaneously in a single HTML page. Map views can be connected, as with “overview” maps that track panning actions in a different map view, or disconnected, showing different geographic regions.
An open architecture that allows easy use of custom data access and rendering extensions, as well as custom mapping operations.
The new Web Mapping Tools capability is especially well-suited for browser-based applications that make use of large amounts of dynamic data. In fields such as national defense, government intelligence and transportation, applications often have to display large numbers of dynamic objects from a variety of different data sources, including feeds from the Global Positioning System (GPS), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), sensor networks and other systems. This data can change rapidly and must be updated in near real time. Direct benefits of rich Internet mapping applications include: improved end user experience, increased productivity, easier integration with service oriented architectures and lower total cost of ownership.
“SpatialFX 4.2 addresses the growing demand in the market for highly responsive Web-based applications,” said ObjectFX president Nick Thomey. “Combined with our SpatialRules™ product, we have the ability to address the full range of requirements for customers who need to manage dynamic spatial and temporal data on a full range of client platforms.”
The new SpatialFX Web Mapping Tools capability allows developers to work with the full range of data sources and image formats supported by the SpatialFX platform, including an extensive list of 3rd party geospatial data management systems and raster and vector data formats.
SpatialFX 4.2 is available immediately. Contact ObjectFX for pricing and additional information.
