GeoCollaborate®, a patented collaborative software, achieves total and true commonality and permits collaboration across all stakeholders accessing data using interactive web maps, GIS platforms, or Common Operating Pictures (COPs). In the same way that map services bring real-time map information to maps, GeoCollaborate® is a network service that permits real-time data sharing and collaboration across an unlimited number of disparate web maps. The concept behind GeoCollaborate® is simple: it lets anyone securely author the content of a lead web map, share content, and collaborate in real time or offline with other follower web maps with nothing more than a browser and a network connection.
Our Collaboration-as-a-Service (CaaS) model is a variation of the typical Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. GeoCollaborate® is available on demand to share GIS data on 2D and 3D digital maps. It can be added to virtually any web map hosted on line or on private networks, and is compatible with native mapping applications on desktop and mobile devices.
The flagship platform, GeoCollaborate® Live, includes hosted state-of-the-art web maps and allows users to create interactive maps and share the data with nothing more than a browser and an Internet connection. Live geocollaborations may happen at any time. Additionally, there is a Dashboard web map included that can be visited for data visualization on maps at any time outside of Live collaborations.
In the same way that map services on the cloud bring real-time map information to web maps, GeoCollaborate® is a cloud service that brings real-time geospatial data sharing and collaboration across an unlimited number of disparate web maps.
The concept behind GeoCollaborate® is simple: allow anyone to author the content of a lead web map, share that content, and collaborate with others in real time on follower web maps. GeoCollaborate® is available on the cloud as a hosted web map and a data sharing and collaborative service. The web maps can be hosted on StormCenter’s GeoCollaborate® servers or on any customer web server.
StormCenter Communications, Inc. has substantial experience in the GIS and geospatial, Earth and environmental observation, broadcast, and emergency management industries combined with long and trusted relationships and partnerships in industry, academia, and government. This unique environment has nurtured the development of tools that accelerate the transition of data products from research into operations and communications.
Through NASA and NOAA Small Business Innovation Research – SBIR contracts the company completed R&D on its emerging digital map and GIS on the cloud (Web GIS) technology: GeoCollaborate®. The GeoCollaborate® system provides real-time digital map data visualization, data sharing, and collaboration across disparate systems. It creates a common operating picture that provides superior situational awareness to guide quicker, more relevant decision making.
