MapCenter is a technology enabling the use of digital maps and city plans in any IT system.

In addition to providing access to the maps themselves (customers have a detailed map of the whole of Europe at their disposal, from which they can select the cartographic data they are interested in), MapCenter makes it possible to perform a number of operations on them, such as

  • searching for objects on the map
  • searching for information on objects
  • marking out routes to selected points
  • searching for the nearest objects

Owing to these functions, MapCenter is a fully-functional GIS server offering numerous options, the use of which depends only on your needs and imagination.

MapCenter is divided internally into modules - thematically related sets of functions. At present, 6 basic modules are available:

Location module

The base module of the MapCenter system, consisting of sub-modules: basic (essential for the operation of the entire system, consisting of functions logging into the system, managing users, sessions and providing information on the system), map (containing geo-coding functions, enabling a map image to be displayed on the user's screen with specific parameters, managing zoom levels and browsing maps), searching (enabling you to search for objects visible on the map: cities, streets, addresses, etc.), location (enabling you to place objects on the map, e.g. streets, objects, etc.). ), localisation (allowing you to place your own points on the map, mark them with icons, captions, and connect them with lines).

Routing module

Provides functions for finding a route between map points, generating a route description, as well as auxiliary functions allowing for management of driver and vehicle categories.

Optimisation module - basic

The basic optimisation module is a solution to the so-called ‘travelling salesman problem’. This module allows optimisation of route points for three algorithms of route calculation: the fastest, the shortest or the cheapest. The result may be presented in a graphic or text form (a report with an option of saving route points in a session with the possibly calculated route and its parameters).

Optimisation and scheduling module

The optimisation and scheduling module is an advanced development of the basic optimisation module, complementing it with a number of new important variables and parameters. Thus, it enables to perform much more complex and comprehensive operations related to management of the transport fleet and planning of transport orders.

Traffic problems and e-toll module

The traffic problems module allows for taking into account information about traffic problems during route calculation. This module is particularly important for the transport industry. In combination with the routing module, it enables the calculation of routes for delivery vehicles and the generally known as ‘heavy fleet’, taking into account, for example, the register of objects that hinder transport (bridges, overpasses with width, height, and permitted tonnage), restrictions in truck traffic (prohibition of entry during hours, etc.), permitted tonnage on road sections, and current traffic problems.

Objects module

The objects module (MapBase) of the MapCenter server enables its cooperation with databases in order to present on maps spatial data saved permanently in these databases. It is an alternative to the location module, which also enables the presentation on maps of data placed on demand in a server session, but as data that is automatically deleted when the session ends.

The most accurate maps

  • Depending on your needs, you can choose the set of map data you are interested in: a detailed map of Poland (MapSet Polska),
  • a detailed map of Poland + a detailed map of Europe + a detailed map of Asia (MapSet Polska, MapSet Europa, MapSet Azja),
  • detailed map of Poland + detailed map of Europe + transit map of Asia (MapSet Polska, MultiNet Europa, MapSet Azja).
