GIS Integration

Available as an add-on module on Pozi Pro or Pozi Enterprise plans.

Pozi’s GIS Integration module enables local users on your organisation’s network to view and interrogate internally maintained GIS map layers within the Pozi web app. Agencies can ensure that staff are viewing the latest information from their local data, without having to publish it out on the open web. As with the Database Integration module, this information will only be visible to internal users.

Map layer formats include Esri SHP, MapInfo TAB, SQL Server Spatial and PostGIS.

Most browsers can display map layers with several hundred individual features. The Chrome browser can display layers with several thousand features.

For larger vector datasets, and also raster layers such as internal aerial imagery and elevation layers, Pozi’s GIS Integration module can also support WMS layers from GeoServer.

Configuration

Email support@groundtruth.com.au with the following information:

File Path

This is the network file path to the dataset. Supported files include Esri SHP, MapInfo TAB, DXF, GeoJSON and VRT. The path must be specified as a UNC path, ie, no drive letters.

  • eg \\10.58.200.28\GIS\Data\Assets\Pipes.TAB
