OpenCities Map PowerView Computer Software Screen Mockup

What is OpenCities Map PowerView?

OpenCities Map PowerView enables you to view map assets and perform light 2D feature acquisition and editing. It supports GPS and editing capabilities, making it ideal for field-based operations that require feature editing. It is an entry-level product to view and edit 2D geospatial information. OpenCities Map PowerView offers placement methods that convert CAD element creation tools into feature-based element creation tools. CAD users can continue to use familiar MicroStation capabilities to create feature-based map elements without learning a new workflow. You can also create in-house placement methods for more specific needs.

CAPABILITIES

Create Intelligent Geospatial Objects

Enrich CAD-based mapping workflows by expanding MicroStation’s capabilities with feature-based modeling. Customized placement methods could be created to accelerate design and avoid error.

Improved Interoperability

Direct querying of and imports from leading spatial databases (read-only) such as Oracle Spatial, Microsoft SQL Server, Esri File Geodatabase, ArcGIS Server & Online, PostgreSQL (PostGIS) and Web Feature Service (WFS), providing you with seamless and intuitive access to spatial data from a variety of sources. Integrates with the most common spatial databases and data formats.

Geospatial SDK Development Platform

Subject matter experts can create their own custom GIS application to meet their unique needs. OpenCities Map provides base geospatial functionality and database connectivity to build custom GIS solutions.

Better Geospatial Workflows

Easily edit and manage 2D data in a seamless workflow with quick streaming and direct data access.

Intelligent Geospatial Objects

Provides 2D design capabilities for creating and maintaining engineering-quality spatial data.

Unifies Spatial Information

Ensures data integrity and enforces business rules, as well as integrates geospatial information.

OpenCities Map Advanced Computer Software Screen Mockup

What is OpenCities Map Advanced?

OpenCities Map Advanced includes a rich set of capabilities that substantially increase productivity by enabling feature-based modeling workflows through its schema file. It allows you to define a set of features to be captured along with their related properties, symbology, annotation, and behaviors. By extending the MicroStation DGN format with XFM, OpenCities Map Advanced provides an environment that ensures geometric and business property accuracy while still allowing access to powerful MicroStation tools. OpenCities Map Advanced offers placement methods that convert CAD element creation tools into feature-based element creation tools. CAD users can continue to use familiar MicroStation capabilities to create feature-based map elements without learning a new workflow.
