London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) October 26, 2009
Exprodat today announces the release of Team-GIS Directory, a unique ArcGIS Desktop tool for organizing and presenting desktop GIS data. Team-GIS Directory allows spatial data administrators to provide users with consistent, structured and intuitive access to spatial data, while providing users with powerful functionality that makes ArcMap much easier to use. For further information see http://www.exprodat.com/software/TGD.
Team-GIS Directory is an ArcMap extension combining an easy-to-use data catalogue with powerful search, preview and metadata visualization tools. It is designed to allow spatial data administrators to provide their desktop GIS users with structured access to enterprise GIS data, and to ensure that users can quickly locate data of interest to them and easily add it to their ArcMap project. Team-GIS Directory was previously known as Team-GIS Explorer, but has been re-branded as part of Exprodat's Team-GIS suite's version 200 release.
Exprodat's Technical Director, Chris Jepps, says, "One of the key strengths of Team-GIS Directory is that it allows Administrators to impose order on the often chaotic morass of GIS data common in many organizations, such as rasters, vector-based datasets and layer files. Administrators can set-up the data architecture and using Team-GIS Directory provide users with a secure and simple way to find the data they need, without the users ever needing to know where the data is physically located."
"But Team-GIS Directory is not only for data administrators, there are a whole bunch of useful tools for your average desktop GIS user, such as easy-to-use search tools, metadata comparison, and the ability to query and add layers from MXD files without having to open the projects up first. We've also made Team-GIS Directory fully compatible with ArcGIS 9.3.1 by provided embedded support for layer packages, which is something you can't even do in ArcGIS Desktop yet. If you've ever been frustrated by ArcMap's 'Add Data' button then you should give Team-GIS Directory a try."
Exprodat's Team-GIS product suite is made up of a number of extensions to ESRI's ArcGIS Desktop that provide 'out-of-the-box' functionality designed specifically for the needs of the petroleum sector. Team-GIS software is data independent and allows E&P companies to integrate vendor data with in-house datasets for use in GIS-based spatial analysis.
ArcGIS is a scalable family of software products comprising a complete geographic information system (GIS) built on industry standards. ArcGIS is used for the creation, management, integration, analysis, display, and dissemination of spatial data. Visualization, editing, and analysis, along with advanced data management, distinguish the ArcGIS software family as the leading GIS software. Much more than a specialized offering for a small niche of specialists, ArcGIS is designed as a scalable system that can be deployed in every organization, from an individual desktop to a globally distributed network of people.
