At BIS Consulting we try to stay on top of the constantly changing technology world so we can keep you informed. Last week Google announce that they are making some Google Earth changes so we went straight to our GIS director, Aaron Kreag, for some insight on this and to see if it would affect our clients and the way their maps are handled.
While we do not think the change will affect any of our clients we felt it was important to put out some brief news affecting the greater GIS community. Google will soon be ending its Google Earth Enterprise program among a few other internal changes. ESRI has some news related to these changes located here:… http://www.esri.com/landing-pages/products/google-lp
The main news here is that if you or others in your office have parcel data in KML or KMZ format and you use Google Earth to visualize this data, you should consider switching to another product and format to view your data. If you would like to upgrade your GIS program and capabilities, BIS is able to provide you with a dynamic web based mapping application such as:… http://gis.bisconsultants.com/huntcad/
It is our understanding that Google Maps will continue to be used and supported for online usage, satellite imagery, locations and directions. Please give us a call or email if you would like to discuss this new information.”
BIS Consulting is strongly considering holding a Technology Conference in December 2015. However, before we make concrete plans we would like to gauge interest and hopefully get an idea of possible attendance numbers.
