Integrated 2D Visualizations

All web GIS applications come with fully integrated 2D and 3D map views. 2D provides a top-down user experience and expands on traditional hard copy maps by offering map interactivity and a suite of tools.

Tools Currently Available in 2D:

  • Basemap Gallery
  • Bookmarks
  • Coordinate Conversion
  • Editor
  • Layer List & Filters
  • Legend
  • Measure
  • Popups
  • Print
  • Scalebar
  • Search
  • Sketch
  • Statistical Query
  • Time Slider
  • Track Location (Mobile Only)
  • Attribute Table

The Coordinate Conversion tool provides cursor/point location coordinates in a variety of formats

Measuring tools are available in both 2D and 3D

Integrated 3D Visualizations

3D extends the benefits of web GIS even more by providing a new perspective of GIS data. It features full horizontal and vertical rotational control of the map as well as basemap elevation, allowing visualization of data in a complete spatial context. Subsurface data can be displayed to show its depth underground.

Tools Currently Available in 3D:

  • Basemap Gallery
  • Coordinate Conversion
  • Legend
  • Measure
  • Popups
  • Attribute Table
  • Screenshot
  • Search
  • Sketch
  • Statistical Query
  • Track Location (Mobile Only)

Mobile Compatibility

All web GIS applications are operating system and device agnostic. They are compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux and most modern mobile devices that run iOS, Android, or Windows Mobile. They are also optimized to run on modern browsers including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge, and Apple Safari.

The application will dynamically adjust to a mobile layout & enable the ability to track user location

3D is available on compatible mobile devices

Mobile GIS Functionality

  • Add Photos & Videos As Layer Attachments
  • Data Editing
  • Full Compatibility With ESRI Collector For ArcGIS Mobile App
  • Location Tracking Via Device GPS
  • Offline Editing & Syncing Capabilities

Client-Side Statistical Spatial Querying

The Statistical Query tool gives deep insight into spatial analytical data by allowing the user to select features on the map. The application will then calculate aggregate statistics such as mean or standard deviation and plot the results on a graph and table. Project-specific calculations are also possible. The interactive table has common spreadsheet functionality including sorting and filtering and can be exported to the desktop as a formatted spreadsheet.

The interactive table provides common spreadsheet functionality and can be used to quickly zoom to selected features

Statistically-driven spatial queries are available in both 2D & 3D

Charts/Graphs Currently Available

  • Area
  • Bar (Horizontal and Vertical)
  • Box and Whiskers
  • Bubble
  • Donut & Pie
  • Line
  • Mixed
  • Polar Area
  • Radar
  • Scatter

Current Table Functionality

  • Column Aggregate Statistics
  • Download As Formatted .xlxs/.csv Spreadsheet
  • Filter Single Column
  • Filter Entire Table
  • Group Results By Attribute
  • Pagination
  • Row Hover Feature Highlight & Zoom
  • Sort

Client-Side Data Editing

Modify GIS data easily and securely directly from the application with the Editor tool. Editable layers can be prepared with any number of predefined fields with standard data types including string, integer, double, and date. The intuitive user interface allows for the creation of new features as well as the ability to modify and/or delete existing features. The layer is housed in a secure ArcSDE database.

Raster Data Support

GIS data isn’t limited to only points, lines, and polygons. Raster data consists of a matrix of cells where each cell contains a discrete value representing real-world phenomena, such as land-use or soils data. Advanced geospatial analysis frequently produces raster data sets and SynTerra’s web GIS platform provides support for visualizing raster data.

Advanced Data Visualizations

GIS data can be visualized in several ways with advanced symbology. For example, a weighted heat map can be created to illustrate statistically significant clustering. Symbol size can be varied by a numerical attribute, displaying larger symbols for larger values and smaller symbols for smaller values.

Heat maps can be weighted by a numerical attribute to show statistically significant data clustering

Time-enabled layers animate change over time

Time-enabled GIS

Time-enabled GIS layers can be animated to visualize change over time with the Time Slider tool. It can also be manually controlled to give focus to one specific point in time.

Custom Branded Print Layouts

The Print tool allows the user to create high-quality hardcopy maps directly from the application. The layout can be customized to match organization branding and supports both portrait and landscape orientations of various paper sizes. There are dynamic title, author, and date fields as well..

Export File Formats:

  • EPS
  • GIF
  • JPG
  • PDF
  • PNG8
  • PNG32
  • SVG
  • SVGZ

Operations Dashboard

Operations Dashboard is a configurable web app that provides location-aware data visualization and analytics for a real-time view of people, assets, and events. View the activities and key data most vital to your organization from a dynamic dashboard.
