Latitude Geographics Group Ltd.


Geocortex from Latitude Geographics Group Ltd. encompasses a suite of products and services designed to help organizations communicate and visualize geographic information over the Internet. The Geocortex Internet Mapping Framework (IMF) uses a centralized Java code base to give ArcIMS sites a consistent look across an organization. Latitude has also developed software that provides comprehensive ArcIMS site performance and map usage statistics that administrators can use to optimize their sites and make more informed decisions. Using Latitude's Geocortex Perspective service, users can add 3D viewer functionality to ArcIMS sites and can rotate the 3D scene, zoom in and out, and change the viewing angle. Last summer, forest firefighters in Alberta, Canada, used this system in conjunction with near real-time imagery to strategize in the hilly terrain.
