CustomersSpatial Search and Filtering
  • FOR CONSUMERS
  • Yesterday Find the address of a nearby
    restaurant
  • Today Show me where nearby restaurants are

    is easy to walk to with no big hills along the
    way, has a nice view of the Golden Gate Bridge,
    and the wait is less than 20 minutes

    tremendous new resources and capabilities that
    complement traditional GIS
  • Expanding user base - Internet geospatial
    connects the work of GIS specialists to the
    broader enterprise and community GIS for the
    masses
  • Leveraged GIS investments - Prior investments in
    GIS tools and data can be used and protected
  • Platform functionality Strong integration to
    workplace tools enhances productivity,
    complements GIS
