Thursday, July 11, 2013

SeaZone and Snowflake Software have joined forces to create “HydroView Now: Features,” a ready to consume Web Feature Service for the marine community.

Consisting of key marine and nautical feature types from vector charting supplied by official International Hydrographic Organisation (IHO) chart producers, HydroView Now: Features is an ideal complement to the Free-to-Use HydroView Now: Basemap.

Delivered through an authenticated geography mark-up language (GML) web feature service, organizations can utilize the service via an application programming interface (API) and securely display, select and query HydroView Now: Features within their company’s internally facing intranet, desktop mapping software or externally facing website.

SeaZone and Snowflake can deliver marine data as GML for direct consumption and access. This ease of using HydroView Now: Features allows SeaZone’s Licensees the most up-to-date content available for reuse, without the long term data management costs associated traditional data delivery, management, retrieval and/or web hosting and serving. The GML we deliver complies with the S-100 standard for hydrographic data as well as meeting the requirements for INSPIRE download services.

Offering a Data as a Service (DaaS) platform provides data publishers and consumers with the ability to publish, deliver and consume adaptable cloud services ‘off the shelf’ and at minimal cost.

HydroView Now: Features appeals to organizations with varying coastal, marine and maritime mapping requirements including: oil, gas and renewable energy asset management, environmental monitoring applications; maritime route planning; situational awareness; defense and vessel tracking for anti-piracy and logistical planning.
