It’s about time I came up with a product description (or a teaser) for Sweeping Plains. Here it is:
For municipalities who can’t afford to develop and maintain their own web-based Geographic Information System, Sweeping Plains is an externally hosted and managed website that provides the public with an easy-to-use map interface for accessing valuable council information.
Unlike MapInfo Exponare Public or ESRI EView, Sweeping Plains combines advanced mapping software, web hosting, data maintenance and professional map design in a pre-configured package.
(Thanks to the book Crossing The Chasm for helping trim down what would have been a long and boring list of features and benefits.)
If that sounds useful to your organisation, contact Groundtruth Mapping Systems. Or stay tuned as I provide further updates and working samples.
