Cartography has played an intregal part of the human story for centuries. From the cave paintings of Western Europe and the acient maps of Babylon and Greece to the maps used by explorers during the Age of Exploration, maps have long served as essential tools to help people navigate through the world. Although traditionally created using pen and paper, many maps today are generated through the use of advanced technology.
Axes Systems is revolutionalizing the map-making process with our state-of-the-art GIS-based cartography system axpand. Recently selected as a Red Herring Global 100 Company for innovation, management and global strategy, our software as a service (SaaS) application allows commercial map publishers, governmental mapping agencies and the general public to create and use high-quality maps using existing geo-data. Maps that are created using axpand's web services can be shared through e-mail, mobile devices, links to web pages, print publications or as images.
"axpand is the only software of its kind on the market", says Mary Lou von Wyl of Axes Systems. Users can configure, visualize, generalize, interact with and publish maps in one integrated process without sacrificing visual and data quality. There is no need to export data to external tools and no need to use additional software for printing preparation or web publishing. This automated Circular Process enables significant time and cost savings.
The five minute segment will educate viewers on the increasingly visible role that technology and software solutions are playing in the map-making industry.
