Europa Technologies links global data release with viaEuropa service benefits

11 July 2011 - For immediate release

Geo-data service provider Europa Technologies is launching the latest update to its market leading family of global data products.

The 2011.2 release reflects the very latest changes to political borders, making the company the first data provider to publish a digital map showing the newly formed nation of South Sudan.

The update also covers first level administrative boundaries worldwide, more countries with second level administrative boundaries, plus Middle Eastern road networks, including city streets at 1:50,000 scale.

Europa Technologies is highlighting the release at the ESRI International User Conference – the largest GI event in the world – in San Diego, California, this week.

To celebrate the release, Europa Technologies is giving customers a free 90-day subscription to its new viaEuropa service, allowing data to be consumed as both a traditional GIS data product and by Data as a Service (DaaS).

viaEuropa provides access to high quality, pre-rendered global map tiles which support the delivery of digital maps direct to web, desktop and mobile applications.

Europa Technologies’ director and founder Warren Vick, said: “Our global data provision offers a consistent, definitive source of international information that is ready to deploy on both enterprise systems and the Internet. By making it easier to try out our global data products within our viaEuropa service, we are giving our customers the best of both worlds. They continue to access data for use in their own systems but now have the option of consuming our maps as a service.”

Europa Technologies’ renowned global data portfolio is used by Google and other popular Internet-based map services and is ideal for any international enterprise to use as a global Spatial Data Infrastructure (gSDI).

All existing business and government customers on Europa Technologies’ subscription service will automatically receive updates to their products from mid-July based on the 2011.2 release.
