Easily capture geospatial information in Office 365 and SharePoint

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.

REQUIREMENTS: This Add-In requires an Office 365 Subscription and an active SharePoint Online License to sign in.

COMPATIBILITY: This Add-In requires any of these browser versions IE 11+, Chrome 53+, Firefox 39+, Safari 8 or later.

Add-In capabilities

Simple and intuitive: Data collection with WebPoint is intuitive and does not require specialization in the GIS area.

Mapping of complex data sctructures: WebPoint can capture topics with complex, hierarchical data structure. At the same time topics may have different / mixed geometry types.

Provision of a topic 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.

Granular assignment of rights: Rights to topics / topics can be granular by configuring SharePoint Online Granular.

Data Quality: Data collection is done using standard input controls. It can be adapted to the data quality requirements by configuration.

Auditability: Data collected with WebPoint can be versioned and data changes associated with a user.

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.

Geodata Management: WebPoint geospatial data is stored in GeoMapFish. However, the support of another geodata management (eg ArcGIS) would be easy to implement.
