I felt "show and tell" school day amazement when I learned that several clients of InteractiveGIS offer guest access to portions of their InteractiveGIS-created Web-based GIS systems. ("GIS" stands for Geographic Information System or Geospatial Information System.)
I've written that when I tell the story of InteractiveGIS making what we believe is the world’s first GIS sale on eBay, I'm asked, “What’s GIS?”
For a way to answer that question, you're invited to put on your own "GIS Show and Tell."
The Web-GIS InteractiveGIS created for New Market, Virginia was featured in the March 2010 issue of Virginia Town & City. For more information about the article with links and images, feel free to visit InteractiveGIS on Facebook.
I like the Map Layers tab (top left in red below) with the Details radio button selected (in red below tabs) so I can see differentiated features by color. If I click the Zoom In tool button on the tool bar (far right in red), I can then draw a box around an area of interest and it will zoom in to the extents of the box I drew.
As we've discussed in many of our posts about GIS on Handshake 2.0, GIS is about way more than maps. It's about unimagined ways to synergistically relate data. We're particularly interested in business data. And killer apps. Our latest formulation looks like this:
Game Mechanics + Social Networking + GIS + Business Data
+ Algorithm, Formula and/or Idea + Mobile = Killer App
We're hoping your "show and tell" experience with this GIS from InteractiveGIS will show and tell you new ideas about your own business data – maybe even a killer app!
InteractiveGIS, a custom, Web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions provider, is a client of Handshake Media, Incorporated, of which Handshake 2.0 is an enterprise.
