Pitney Bowes has started 2015 off with a hiss and a roar. Not only have they unveiled a global launch of their brand and identity they have been busy rolling out a strong update to MapInfo Stratus – the easiest way to publish and share and visualise data from MapInfo Pro. This update to MapInfo Stratus contains some significant new functionality and updates to existing functionality that will be of significant benefit to all users.
So, here’s what new and shiny in the latest release of MapInfo Stratus
Last week the latest release (R38) of MapInfo Stratus has seen (among other improvements) an implementation of WMS client support. A WMS is a standard protocol for serving map images over the Internet. It is a standard developed by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and adopted by the International Standards Organization (ISO). A wide variety of data can be accessed by WMS services made available by Government and other organisations. The Stratus Admin Console supports adding WMS layers as base maps or overlays from both public and secured WMS services. In MapInfo Stratus WMS legends and WMS feature information in call outs will be available.
South Waikato District Council have implemented MapInfo Stratus to provide a simple online mapping tool for public access to Council information for services like water supply, wastewater and the like.
