Global Insight Plus
Mapping your place in the digital world
Global Insight Plus extends the base map and extensive places gazetteer of Global Insight with additional layers to form a comprehensive topographic map of the world. It is an ideal core asset to support global location intelligence applications within your organisation.
Global Insight Plus
Global Insight Plus builds on the foundation of an up-to-date political map and the extensive 1.5 million places gazetteer provided by Global Insight. Additional map layers are included to provide a rich feature coverage of the world. The product includes roads, railways / railroads, airports, ports and drainage features (rivers and lakes).
Global Insight Plus forms a new standard for world reference mapping and is an ideal upgrade for outdated or unmaintained data sets.
You can see a showcase of 1000 digital maps created with this product in the Global 1000 Atlas which explores the 1000 most populated places in the world.
Rich Attribute Data
The map layers in Global Insight Plus feature rich attribute data to help improve cartography, perform better searches and enable analytical functions. For example, the extensive places gazetteer grades all locations from capital down to small village or settlement. Many cities and towns include an estimated population. The airports layer includes name, type, IATA code and ICAO code. Similarly, the ports layer includes name and UN/LOCODE.
The combination of worldwide coverage and rich attribute data make Global Insight Plus a formidable supplement to your data assets.
An Enterprise-Ready Data Asset
Global Insight Plus is ready to deploy on corporate servers, both dedicated and cloud-based. It can form the backbone to a Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) and deliver access to the geographic information required to power location intelligence applications in your organisation.
If your operations are international or worldwide, use Global Insight Plus as a core data asset to support operational awareness, empower analysis, bolster decision making, allocate resources, meet standards and justify policy-making.
