Computerized mapping allows for quick, easy, and accurate analysis of public works asset data and events
Computerized mapping allows for quick, easy, and accurate analysis of public works asset data and events. Links exist between map coordinates and the related asset information. Departmental decision –making can occur at the most informed level. GIS helps to elevate the value place on Public Works departments as computerized maps serve as the communication device between Public Works departments and the constituents they serve. CarteGraph offers a standalone application to graphically display database assets and modules that provide direct links to popular GIS programs.
MAPdirector is a powerful map-viewing tool designed to work independently or dynamically with all CarteGraph software modules. When used in conjunction with a CarteGraph software database, the link with these databases is "live". For example, if MAPdirector and SIGNview are both running and changes are made to your sign assets in SIGNview, you will see those changes immediately in MAPdirector. Use MAPdirector to assign locations of your assets, eliminating the need to manually enter coordinates in the database program. If you have any SQL- or ODBC-style databases that contain location information, MAPdirector also displays this information.
