Geospatial analysis is fundamental to all industries having to manage information that has location importance. Yet some sectors remain underserved. The current marketplace offers basic one-size-fits–all subscription maps where users are expected to make their own maps or sophisticated map software requiring an in-house GIS specialist. MapPort fills the gap. Using our platform, the operator can create custom on-line maps, tailored to the unique needs of the client, affordably, effectively, and remotely. Our maps are so intuitive, user know-how is immediate.

Key Features, Capabilities and Components
MapPort allows rapid construction and deployment of tailored map experiences drawing on a rich stock of in-house data and functionalities, with the flexibility to seamlessly incorporate customized content configured by a GIS technician. A powerful feature of the platform is the unique data model which defines and serves maps and layers as classes, not singular objects. MapPort houses multiple consumer map products without replicating core data sources or components, avoiding repetitive and costly individual map, layer, and tool configuration, without relying on a cookie-cutter approach. This capability underlies a highly efficient ecommerce engine that can bootstrap all data, functionality, and content on the platform. At the same time, MapPort components can be fully configured, customized, and extended to serve client needs in specially designed Custom Maps, including enterprise grade systems. A robust account management feature set gives organizations intuitive internal control and makes customer support simple and flexible.
The versatility of the platform owes to its powerful, reliable and evolvable architecture, leveraging industry-leading open-source technologies. Combining high value datasets and high impact user-friendly features, MapPort is a full-service web map solution that unlocks geospatial intelligence for market sectors underserved by legacy solutions.
MapPort utilizes a strict front end/back-end setup, powered by Angular and Django respectively, to cleanly separate data and map operations from the user experience which can vary widely based on configurations stored on the back end. App logic and state is stored in a Postgres database managed through Django.
The map and data stack extends this with PostGIS in a separate geospatial Postgres database instance, visualized via open-source components GeoServer and OpenLayers. Elastic provides out-of-the-box smart search capability for parcels and other data layers.
MapPort supports a range of map-based user activities: environmental conditions investigation, management of distributed resources, site analysis, use viability assessment, risk assessment, disaster preparedness engineering, infill and ADU opportunity identification and development, educational facilities administration, land assembly, municipal infrastructure maintenance and so on. Dedicated maps for industry sectors or organizations are easily spun up and access sold via subscription or otherwise.
