Product update

What’s coming in X-Info Connect and X-Info WebConnect v6.0?

X-Info Connect and WebConnect v6.0 development is nearing completion which includes the much anticipated Map Activity component.

The map component provides a simplified approach to viewing and updating data, by displaying the data relevant to Users in a map.

A map enables you to communicate tasks and outcomes clearly in an engaging way

What is a Map in X-Info Connect?

A Map is made up of Layers which are shown in a Map Display. These layers include:

  • Internal Data – stored as geometry fields in X-Info Connect
  • External Data – spatial data from external data connections
  • Geocoder – Open Street Maps or other licenced datasets enabling street address searching.

What can a Map provide?

Searches including:

  • Street Address search – search for any street address
  • Layer searches – search for data on any of the layers in a map.

Functions including:

  • Displaying spatial data and different layers in a map
  • Querying data to find more information about features in a map, including measuring distance and area
  • Searching data and displaying features in a map
  • Updating data – this includes adding and editing spatial data and data associated to the features in a map.

Where is a Map used?

In X-Info WebConnect 6.0, a Map is used for Activities. These work the same as Activities in the current release version but data is displayed in a Map.
