We are excited to announce the availability of the MapProvision web application to the public.

MapProvision is an online tool that allows you to easily share your geo data on your website. In minutes you can enhance your own website, blog or intranet pages to enable your users to perform customized analysis on your data using thematic overlays, animation, and charting.

MapProvision is free to use. It is a 100% cloud-based application and is designed for ease of use with no downloads or coding required.

MapProvision stores your data sets into Google Fusion Tables that are linked to your Google Account. These show up in your Google Docs list and will only allow modification by the Google Account holder or other users that the account holder authorizes. Any data you upload using MapProvision will be owned by you indefinitely regardless of whether you continue to use MapProvision or not.

MapProvision can represent spatial data in a number of unique layers such as multi geometry (points, lines and polygons), interpolation, raster grid, circles, density, and your own customizable image sets. It also includes visualizations to chart trends in your data using scatter plot, histogram, and data tables.

Our aim is to offer a full featured online mapping and analysis solution that does not require developer time to implement.

MapProvsion is foundered by a group of professionals from GIS, hydrological, engineering, and software backgrounds that see emerging cloud technologies as the solution to the data management issues involved with maintaining, sharing, and analyzing modern GIS data sets.

Rather than serving up canned static images as overlays MapProvision provides dynamic, interactive overlays created on the fly that shows the data spread between only the data visible in the map rather than the dataset as a whole. This allows for a greater drill ability to see data spread and to perform detailed data analysis. 
Similarly charting can be performed against the dataset as a whole or dynamically against just the data visible in the current map view.

In our next blog post we will walk you through the steps to take a geo data file, upload the data into your own personal cloud and embed the MapProvision Viewer application in your website.

Give MapProvision a test run and help us democratize spatial data analysis on the web.

Below shows an example of how you can embed the MapProvision viewer in your website.
