iMaptools - LeadDog Mapping and Geocoding Demo

This demo presents an example of iMaptools integration of LeadDog data into mapping, reverse geocoding and place name geocoding.

The Geocoder runs in a Postgresql database using a full text search engine and queries providing high performance place name geocoding. If you enter just a country it will provide a list of placenames with the capital city as the first entry. If you enter "country, city" then we will locate to that city.

This demo also features the iMaptools Reverse Geocoder. You can click on the map and the lat-lon of the mouse is sent to our reverse geocoder and the results are placed in a popup dialog. The reverse geocoder is designed for high performance application, but this demo is useful for evaluating the it interactively.

For the mapping, iMaptools prepares the raw third party data into layers that can be used by MapServer OpenSource software and creates the mapfile that contains the cartographic styling of the map. We can customize the styling to fit the needs of most clients. We optionally integrate that with a tile generation and management system to serve tiles to the application as this demo does.

With good data like from LeadDog Consulting and our geocoding, maps, reverse geocoding and driving direction products, we are able to deliver near turnkey solutions to our clients. We provide 14+ years of experience and expertise to get you GIS enabled on your servers in days. Our support and expertise lets you focus on your core business strengths rather than get side tracked learning the ins and outs of the GIS software.
