GISi Announces Flex Data Viewer Version 1.1 and Multiple Client Installations BIRMINGHAM, AL - APRIL 15, 2009 - Geographic Information Services, Inc. (GISi) is pleased to announce the release of Data Viewer 1.1, incorporating additional functionality into the initial release of the product. Data Viewer, a Flex application built upon ArcGIS Server 9.3, delivers an easy-to-use, rich Internet application centered on a tabbed view concept. Data Viewer offers organizations the opportunity to deploy one application with multiple tabs (or views) defined by individual departments or other business requirements. Along with the core solution, a powerful administrative manager enables the capability to add/remove tabs (views), store queries, and design a personalized look and feel, literally in minutes!

Data Viewer 1.1 provides additional capabilities over ESRI's Flex Template, including:
  • Tabbed Views - Deploy one application with multiple tabs (views) referencing multiple map services.
  • Web Based Administration - Configure Data Viewer through an easy-to-use Administrator.
  • Print to map layout template - Author print layout templates in ArcMap and print to them in Data Viewer
  • Control Tab Access- Control user access to tabbed views (leverages Active Directory for Intranet deployments only.)
  • Export Results - Export results of a query, identify or a buffer selection to common output formats (.xls, .pdf, jpeg)

Data Viewer in Action: Multiple organizations have already purchased and implemented Data Viewer. One of those organizations is Coastal Georgia Regional Development Center (CGRDC). The CGRDC is comprised of a 10 county region along the Southeastern coast of Georgia. They are using Data Viewer to disseminate multiple build-out scenarios in support of a joint land use (JLUS) study of Fort Stewart and the surrounding communities. Data Viewer's tabbed view concept allows the CGRDC to disseminate multiple development alternatives through one application.

"We needed a product that provided the flexibility to configure and deploy multiple map services through one application. Data Viewer met all of our requirements" said Chris Chalmers, CGRDC's GIS Manager. "With Data Viewer's configuration tools, our Analyst can add, remove, and manage different tabs (views) in Data Viewer without ever writing a piece of code. This is important in the JLUS project as development alternatives happen regularly and we need to be able to communicate these scenarios to our constituents and to the public".

The City of Madison, Alabama is another Data Viewer customer and sees it as an integral part of the City's effort to spread Enterprise GIS across multiple departments. They've defined tabs (views) for the Public Safety, Public Works, Planning, and Utilities Departments.

Keith Conville, the GIS Coordinator for the City of Madison, said "our City's Departments are like others when it comes to web GIS - each wants to see their data and interact with the map differently. Data Viewer allowed us to accomplish this goal through multiple tabs (views) and stored queries per tab. Additionally, Data Viewer provided us with a configurable administrator making it efficient to manage and tailor each tab".
