MapsOnline 2012 (MO4) - This is BIG! 
MapsOnline is SimpliCITY's online mapping component. MapsOnline provides communities with the 
opportunity to publish their GIS on the Internet at a low cost and to enjoy an ever-growing list of functionality. Online mapping is rapidly becoming a central component of the GIS industry, and MapsOnline is leading the way.
MapsOnline serves communities in ten states. Many of our MapsOnline communities employ more than one mapping website in order to serve their staff and local residents (at no additional cost!). We enable our clients to implement multiple sites in order to provide the right functionality and mapping layers for different user groups. The result is a complete online mapping solution that is capable of more than just providing public access to a GIS....MapsOnline can serve as the core component of your entire GIS program.
Imagine your community's Fire, Police, Planning & Zoning, Economic Development, Public Works, and Board of Health Departments all leveraging the same GIS tools 
with no software or data to install! And, imagine being 
able to include all of your boards and committees too!
MapsOnline tabs allow for all of the functionality of the tools you expect of online mapping in an easy to learn
and simple interface:
* Zoom & Pan Tools
* Identify Features
* Query Tools
* Measure Tools
* Area Calculation
* Printing Tools
* Find Property Tools
* Abutters Tools
* Help System

MapsOnline enables your community to upload your assessing data 24/7/365. You can even decide to update your assessing data for your staff's use but "freeze" the assessing data for the public's use until the end of the year. This flexibility allows your GIS program to benefit from having the latest assessing information available to all departments without publicizing your data prematurely. And, PeopleGIS can setup your MapsOnline to include all condominium records from your assessing database.

MapsOnline provides additional functionality that extends its value beyond simple public access tools,
* Avery Mailing Labels
* Quick-Zoom Tools
* Query Tools
* Multi-Media Integration
* Virtual Tour Integration
* Document Management
* Tiled-Mapping
* Multi-Coordinate Systems
* Public Safety Data Integration
Imagine being able to compile an abutters list and print that list to Avery Labels directly.
Imagine being able to click on a map feature and read/download digital documents available for that feature (such as property deeds, subdivision plans, survey notes, tie cards, and more).
Imagine being able to link photos to map features that pop-up as you hover over them on the screen.
Imagine being able to customize MapsOnline sites for the Public, your Assessing Department, Public Works, Police, Fire, Senior Services, and Planning.
Imagine being able to integrate virtual tour photography into your MapsOnline to
support economic development, public safety operations, planning, and public
Imagine being able to deliver your GIS to every member of your staff and/or the 
public at a low cost, using an interface that is as easy to use as Google Maps. 
Imagine all of these things, and then think MapsOnline.

Our News Releases are intended to inform communities about what others are doing with SimpliCITY software.  Most of the applications profiled in our news releases can be copied from the PeopleForms Form Library for free!  The idea is to enable all of our communities to do more with our software.
