Partnership brings web deployment to desktop GIS

September 7th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Blue Marble Geographics’s partnership with web map service company, MangoMap will enable its users to upload map data directly from the software to an online Mango-hosted map site, which can be easily shared with customers, colleagues, or constituents. The integration of the desktop GIS data processing and analysis functionality with Mango’s web deployment capability provides a seamless one-stop GIS data management, visualisation and sharing tool. The addition of MangoMap as an embedded component of Global Mapper allows users to initially set up their Mango account by purchasing one of three subscription options, and with a couple of clicks, upload the relevant GIS layers into an online map. For Global Mapper users, this workflow increases the flexibility of the software’s workspaces by providing a means to share maps with anyone, on any device, quickly and easily. The web map platform has attracted mapping professionals from all over the world because of the simplicity of the map creation process. Without the need for web development expertise, anyone can create a map and immediately make it accessible to the public at an affordable price. Support for MangoMap publishing will be introduced with the release of Global Mapper version 21, scheduled for mid-September.
