Other Features & Capabilities
OGC Web Services
More than just hosted software, iShare in the Cloud is a managed solution including infrastructure, upgrades, security and data provision.
Being a managed service, it frees customers from the costs and complexity of managing a Geographic Information infrastructure (servers, networks, bandwidth) allowing GI managers and analysts to focus on delivering Geographic Intelligence to staff and stakeholders.
Secure from the Outset
We’re Cyber Essentials Plus certified which underlines our experience and knowledge of cyber threats and our commitment to cyber security.
Each customer has their own Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) that provides a logical isolated secure section of the Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Common datasets such as the Ordnance Survey stack are available (inc. MasterMap) as standard, for the whole of Great Britain.
Available as ready to use OGC Web Services or as vectors within the spatial data warehouse will free up time for staff from data translation etc.
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:
“We have worked with Astun Technology for a number of years and have deployed the technology in both Eden and South Lakeland District Councils. We worked with Astun in developing a set of interfaces to link the GIS data to our enterprise digital platform to help develop more efficient processes in creating GIS data and also to develop the automation of processes using the GIS data.
Astun have always been very professional to work with and have always delivered what was expected and to the agreed timescales and agreed costs.”
