Europa Technologies has today announced the latest version of its market-leading family of global data products.
The 2013.1 release introduces a number of significant improvements including:
- Support for the Korean language
- Enhanced Places of Interest (POI)
- On-going development of high resolution coastlines
- New Ocean Features layer
- Updated international and 1st/2nd level administrative boundaries
- Updated time zones with DST for 2013/2014
- Bonus Content: Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ)
- Bonus Content: Global shaded relief
Additionally, the new release delivers thousands of minor updates and improvements.
Continuing the development programme for localisation, the addition of Korean increases the number of languages supported to seventeen. Ideal for multi-national organisations, the global product suite is able to support local language views to operation centres worldwide.
Places of Interest (POI) have been enhanced to include major power stations world-wide. The importance of these locations was highlighted in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tōhoku, Japan, and the consequential damage to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
A new layer has also been added to represent over 750 named ocean features – an excellent complement to the bathymetry data introduced into the product suite in 2012.
The United Kingdom and Ireland are the latest countries to enjoy high resolution coastlines and offer a significant scale and accuracy improvement.
The bonus content programme, Expo, has been extended to include Exclusive Economic Zones – sea zones prescribed by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea over which a state has special rights over the exploration and use of marine resources, including energy production from water and wind.
In the premier Global Discovery product, the Expo content also includes an elegant global shaded relief raster for both land and sea areas. The addition of this new layer provides a useful physical dimension to a global map.
The new global release is also available by way of Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) through the award-winning viaEuropa platform. viaEuropa provides access to hosted, high quality cartography as a map tile service that can be easily consumed by desktop, mobile and web applications. A free trial of viaEuropa is available.
Europa Technologies’ founder and director Warren Vick, said: “As a cornerstone of our business, we are delighted to announce this first release of our popular global data for 2013. In addition to maintaining existing layers, we have extended the content in our Expo programme. This further demonstrates our commitment to offer the most up-to-date and comprehensive data available”.
