WinGIS is an object-oriented Professional
Geographic Information System software for the Windows' environment. It is the present day
software to implement GIS for a broad spectrum of decision-makers. The software offers current
standards of graphical user interface consistent with other popular Windows Office applications.
Behind the simple and intuitive user
interface WinGIS has a powerful graphic and data exchange engine that provides for the integration of vector/raster maps,
text, and multimedia with database into a complete desktop mapping solution in a client-server environment, using PCs.
WinGIS provides for querying and
analysing spatial data it holds in tandem with associated attribute data that are kept in an external relational
database. Attribute data are kept and managed within any user selectable industry-standard relational database.
The integration of map graphics
with powerful relational database systems provides users with a vastly superior decision-making information system,
without the complexity associated with technical systems. Decision-makers are able to interact on-line with their
data themselves because there is no technical complexity. It has functions to present developed information in the
most intuitive manner via precise high-quality graphics both for on-line decipher and printed output.
WinGIS helps to communicate GIS
information faster and more efficiently. Frequently used themes can be captured as views for quick and convenient
retrieval, thereby serving as an efficient communication media.
WinGIS provides for creating
new data and integrating of existing data in various formats to a complete GIS solution.
WinGIS also supports multi-document
environment, allowing the user to work with several projects simultaneously and switching between them quickly.
