Geoxphere and Loose Goat launch tools bringing XMAP Cloud GIS
Geoxphere and Loose Goat launch tools bringing XMAP Cloud GIS and QGIS together for Local Government
September 02, 2019 -- The latest release of XMAP brings functionality that allows Local Government to view and edit map layers stored on their XMAP database directly in QGIS.
This release makes handling GIS data across an organisation much easier, blending the ease-of-use from XMAP with the complex data manipulation tool from QGIS.
XMAP has been a great success in Local Government with many Local Authorities adopting it to share and edit spatial data to everyone within an organisation. Creating this single-source-of-truth has accelerated the fixing of data errors and made departments using the data more efficient and informed. This new functionality gives hardened GIS Professionals access to the advanced tools within QGIS when needed.
The automatically-generated .qlr file in XMAP allows QGIS to create a secure connection to the cloud-based XMAP database, allowing for complex edits to be made. Of course, this is all controlled through the XMAP Admin Panel, giving the account administrator control over what layers can be accessed in this way.
