Better work planning with Web Map Services (WMS)
Visual information management in Infrakit is built on top of map tiles. Now it is possible for our customer to directly set the desired map tile sources.
Many municipalities and public infra owners provide open data sources as web service. These Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) services follow typically standards by Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), such as Web Map Service (WMS). The content provided from these open interfaces may include city parcels, project boundaries and nature reserves to name a few.
See the following video that discusses the process to enable custom map tiles in Infrakit:
With relevant map tiles the user receives actionable insight by increased situational awareness. For example, foreman can see the machine location in Infrakit together with areas read from WMS. Areas may include project boundary, aerial images, hazardous areas and areas that are prohibited to enter due to nature reserve.
Then if machine is working in such area, operator of excavator can be called back to allowed area.
Infrakit is SaaS product and WMS interface is automatically available for all current and new Infrakit users.
