Major Technology Release Steps Smart Mapping Into New Dimension

Esri Singapore CEO Thomas Pramotedham said the new software from global mapping giant Esri would redefine the way more than 300 organisations in Singapore do business.

 “In recent years we’ve seen significant growth in the number of Singaporean organisations embracing smart mapping and 3D technologies to support decision-making,” Mr Pramotedham said.

“ArcGIS 10.3 will meet this demand by enabling users to more easily make, share, and analyse 2D, 3D and real-time smart maps.

“Organisations can now quickly create and distribute live information on smart maps, and perform advanced analysis of current situations, as well as predict future scenarios.

“Ultimately, this new technology will empower users to significantly improve their understanding of their organisation – and the broader world.”

ArcGIS 10.3 will also simplify the way traditional users of the technology create and share maps online.

“Previously, publishing a map online required multiple applications and the migration of data through the platform to produce a final product for the web,” Mr Pramotedham said.

“Now, the platform allows for a seamless environment to create and publish maps on the web – enabling everyone within an organisation to leverage data more quickly.

“As such, we expect the use of smart mapping technology within organisations to become even more widespread.”

Market forecasts predict the Asia Pacific GIS market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of near eight per cent from 2012 to 2016.
