Our Data Guarantee
– the data you want in the format you need
Dataset originators often supply raw map and business data in generic formats which may not be immediately compatible or easy to integrate with your software. We make sure that the data we provide is ready for use in your preferred system.
Data from different originators might be more useful when linked together and grouped to different geographic levels. Some types of data may need special processing and formatting to suit your intended use – a task that can take many hours and may be beyond the technical competence of less experienced users.
We understand that each business works differently and has specific requirements depending on their own processes and the software used. Our team of specialised GIS and Data experts take care of these tasks in advance, ensuring that you get set up and working as quickly as possible.
Our ‘data guarantee’ ensures our datasets are available in as many different formats as possible and are rigorously tested to make certain that they function correctly.
For users of Big Data, many of our worldwide datasets are offered in a range of formats for enterprise systems such as Oracle, Tableau or Qlik. Formats include the Oracle Fusion Middleware MapViewer feature, Oracle Spatial and Graph Geocoder.dmp format, as well as the Oracle Spatial and Graph routing engine format. SQL server users can also benefit from many different types of data in SQL Spatial (BAK) format.
For GIS users, choose from a wide range of formats to suit the most widely-used mapping solutions: Geoconcept (map files), Esri (shape files, FileGDB) and MapInfo Native (TAB files), MIF/MID formats for Google (KML/KMZ files).
Some point files and look-up tables are also available in tabular or spread-sheet format such as CSV, TAB or Excel formats.
