Mapscape is a high performance mapping system providing GPS maps in the palm of your hand. Our latest edition, Mapscape Edition 10 is now available. Released yearly using the latest authoritative data, Mapscape delivers high cartographic quality mapping, pre-tiled at multiple scales. Edition 10 boasts new dataset layers and improved cartography as well as full coverage for NSW and SA at small scales.
Mapscape is designed for the emergency services but is generally available and suitable for a range of purposes. Mapscape is available in two versions, an Enterprise corporate product for desktop use and an iPad version for mobile use.
The Enterprise version is produced in a variety of file formats. This enables Mapscape to be incorporated into desktop platforms as a seamless base map that users can overlay their own data for spatial analysis and mapping. Organisations can also host Mapscape for use through their own web mapping sites and apps. For example, Mapscape is the base map on Emergency Management Victoria’s VicEmergency product which is freely available to the public online or via both Apple and Android as a free app.
The iPad version of the Mapscape Datapack is designed to operate standalone on iPads, it does not need cellular or internet connection to run. The App combined with in-built GPS capabilities provides a moving map display whilst travelling. There is also street search functionality. Given cellular or wifi connection the app shows live locations of fires and other incident across the state. It is also ‘socially aware’, allowing users to select and view the location of geo-located tweets such as the location of road incidents and warnings published by VicRoads.
Mapscape is designed to ensure that the Emergency Services have access to the latest, authoritative topographic mapping across Victoria with state-wide seamless coverage and 12 levels of mapping. It is a companion product to the Spatial Vision VicMap book.
The Mapscape Edition 10 datapack for iPad can be purchased here and you can download the app here.
