MapInfo Exponare v5.0

MapInfo ExponareEXPONARE IS THE ULTIMATE INFORMATION PORTAL MAKING CORPORATE DATA MORE MEANINGFUL FOR BETTER ANALYSIS AND IMPROVED DECISION MAKING

OVERVIEW

Greater Access to Location Intelligence Data

MapInfo Exponare is an enterprise offering that provides a means to access data within an organisation, irrespective of its format (spatial or non-spatial), and integrates with relevant corporate applications. It is a fundamental location intelligence application that enables organisations to use intuitive, map based portals that can be configured to channel vast amounts of disparate data to internal and external users and customers. Exponare is architected around a central web server which provides data and functionality to two user deployments, Exponare Enquiry and Exponare Public, to meet the needs of various user types.

Key Benefits of Exponare

Configurable:

The intuitive Configuration Manager provides administrators with a great deal of flexibility, without the need to write code. Administrators can configure user profiles to determine the functionality, data sets, queries, views, print templates and application links that each user or group of users can access. Exponare can be administered by a single administrator or group of administrators, all saving their changes simultaneously.

Scalable:

Exponare can be configured to run in a network load balanced environment. Increase in usage demand can be met effectively by increasing the available capacity in the server farm.

Intuitive:

The intuitive nature of Exponare’s interface means that users of varying skill levels and experience can be made operational very quickly. Data sets, queries, print templates and map views are pre-configured by the administrator to make it quick and easy for users to access and analyse data.

Powerful:

Exponare provides a range of capabilities out of the box such as printing, themes, queries, mail merge, redlining, favourites, views, application level linking, and a range of mapping tools (zooming, selections, measuring distances, etc). The administrator can give users as much or as little functionality as required.

Information Portal:

Exponare provides a map based portal into an organisation’s data, both spatial and non-spatial. Data is accessed where it lives so there’s no need for duplication of data. A user can view all the information associated with a map object, regardless of where the data is stored (MapInfo tables, SQL Server, Oracle, Access, etc). Exponare can also link to third party applications, such as rating systems and document management systems, to provide a seamless interface to all relevant information within an organisation.

The Exponare Architecture

The Exponare Architecture outlines how the Exponare Enquiry and Public modules would interact with a Council’s existing infrastructure. The Exponare environment is contructed around a central server, this server acts as link to the corporate information. Configuration tools enable the administrator to set up the system and manage the user access to the appropriate data stores, queries and functionality. The administrator has the flexibility to provide direct access via data binds, or utilise the application link-out facility to invoke a separate application. Web Services can also be used to embed server-based spatial functionality into other council applications. Whether the clients are within or outside the firewall, Exponare leverages the power of location by incorporating the corporate insfrastructure.

Exponare links information from a range of databases and applications and displays these datasets in a single map interface. Exponare can be configured to suit specific needs, and because Exponare links seamlessly with other IT systems, it can be easily integrated with third party applications, such as property and rating systems and document management systems.

What’s New in Exponare 5.0?

Exponare 5.0 includes significant new capabilities that will boost the productivity of Exponare users and give them more power than ever before, just a few of which are mentioned below.

New Enquiry User Interface

Exponare Enquiry has a new Microsoft Office-like ribbon toolbar which improves usability. End users can customise the Quick Access Toolbar to include their most commonly used tools. The panels have been redesigned to maximise screen real estate and improve work flow.

Metadata Integration

Exponare users can now easily find data and access metadata to determine if it is ‘fit for purpose’. Users can search a CSW catalogue created by MapInfo Manager to find data, view metadata and can now open the layer into Exponare. Users can easily view metadata for a catalogued layer by right clicking on it in the Layer Control.

New Public User Interface

A new interface is now available for public use which dramatically improves the user experience and provides more flexibility for Exponare administrators. Improvements include: Microsoft Bing base maps are included out of the box, layers can be reordered using drag and drop, basic annotations are now included, and users can set transparency for each layer using a slider.

New Mobile Interface

A new interface has been designed which is suitable for use on mobile devices such as iPads and iPhones.

Other Exponare Features:

  • Printing – quickly and easily produce professional look output in seconds using standard templates
  • Mail merge – produce standard letters which can include map images, eg send letters to all residents in a street regarding upcoming roadworks
  • Application linking – Exponare makes it easy to link your maps to other corporate information
  • Powerful querying and data binding – access your data where it lives, retrieve data from multiple formats for a single map object
  • Allow public users to report faults such as a cracked footpath or broken streetlight.
