As a company that focuses on acquiring, processing and managing geospatial data, CompassData is faced with the challenge of data sharing internally with our employees as well as externally with our clients. As an Esri Silver Business Partner, we can provide data sharing solutions. ArcGIS Server (from Esri) provides a platform for sharing GIS resources, such as maps, imagery or ground control data with our clients anywhere there is internet service.
ArcGIS Server allows CompassData’s data sharing to share GIS resources across an enterprise, or distributed computing environment, and across the web. We share these resources by first hosting them on our internal ArcGIS Server system, then allowing clients to use and interact with the resources through a secure login. The main advantages of sharing GIS resources through an ArcGIS Server system are the same as sharing any data through any kind of server technology: the server supports multiple users, provides clients with the most up-to-date information, and the data is centrally managed.
