Easily capture geospatial information in Office 365 and SharePoint
Welcome to WebPoint from AskMeWhy
Many objects have a geographical location. To capture them easily is the goal of WebPoint. WebPoint is a streamlined tool that allows to quickly model a new topic in SharePoint Online. WebPoint connects the factual data in SharePoint Online with the geodata of GIS Services.
Benefits of WebPoint
Simple and intuitive
Data collection with WebPoint is intuitive and does not require specialization in the GIS area.
Provision of a theme through configuration
The provision for capturing a new topic is by mere configuration. Data structure and input masks are built using the standard functionality of SharePoint and GeoMapFish and require no programming. Deployment is fast and can be adjusted at any time.
Data collection is done using standard input controls. It can be adapted to the data quality requirements by configuration.
Data import and export
WebPoint factual data can be imported and exported to common data formats (such as CSV, Excel, MS Access, JSON) using SharePoint data interfaces. They have a Global Unique ID that allows them to be assigned to the associated geodata.
Mapping of complex data structures
WebPoint can capture topics with complex, hierarchical data structure. At the same time topics may have different / mixed geometry types.
Granular assignment of rights
Rights to topics / topics can be granular by configuring SharePoint Online Granular.
Data collected with WebPoint can be versioned and data changes associated with a user.
WebPoint geospatial data is stored in GeoMapFish. However, the support of another geodata management (eg ArcGIS) would be easy to implement.
