GE Smallworld Network Viewer was enhanced by Globema with a number of features, in order to better suit needs of customers who were previously using Smallworld Internet Application Server (SIAS) and SIAS-based tailored applications. Network Viewer provides an intuitive, web browser interface, easily understandable also by non-GIS-professionals. Asset information and customer locations can be easily explored through the user interface thanks to responsive look and feel, familiar web maps technology combined with visualization of network assets and the ability to search Smallworld GIS data. Developed enhancements are pretty universal and Globema can apply them – on request of other Smallworld customers – to practically any Network Viewer implementations.
The recent enhancements include:
- Scale bar in the bottom-left corner of the map.
- The search mode can be selected with Asset Search button or Address Search button, instead of a drop down list (faster access). In the address mode it is possible to configure a “prefix text” which is useful for OpenStreetMap users (OSM search is not contextual).
- The Find View was redesigned. Input field looks the same for all search types (text, enumerator etc.). The color indicates that the user specified a value for the given query parameter. Joined tables can be used as enumerators. It is possible to predefine more complex, programmable queries, apart from the ones based on xml.
- Search queries can be restricted to area drawn with the sketching tool.
- The search results are shown in an enhanced view:
- the grey bar displays class name and key object information
- the white bar displays defined fields and is horizontally scrollable
- long texts can be unfolded with a triangle icon
- double click opens Object Details view.
Additionally, a number of enhancements were introduced to deal with large sets of query results (including performance improvements).
- Possibility to export all results of the query. All fields visible in the Object Details view are exported. The export feature works on the server side, similar to plotting, and does not affect user interface.
