LocalMaps gives you the power to create purposeful information products that are easily accessible to your entire organisation. Offering flexible deployment options, the ability to surface information directly from your other non spatial databases (SQL, MySQL, Oracle and PostGres), LocalMaps fits all your internal and/or public facing Web GIS needs.

The below sections outline the key functionality that LocalMaps provides. Functionality breakdown is available for supported versions only - v2.1, v2.2 and v2.3 (v2.3.1 is also supported but not specifically listed in this matrix).

Click on each section to expand tables.
