  • RIM HTML5 Map Control Binding to Local Data using Knockout - MapDotNet Blog
    Hits 1739 Subscribe to this entry Print Bookmark The MapDotNet Development Team released a new version of the RIM HTML5 map control to the iSDK today Version 9 4 0001 now includes a tile requestor isc rim tile requestorLocal for local datasets with support for Knockout js This allows developers a means to do client side tile rendering with client geometry and attributes stored in a local data store In the past developers using RIM would be limited to accessing geometry features through the MapDotNet REST feature service for client side rendering Now you can populate custom view models using frameworks like knockout and bind them to a RIM map There is a sample in the iSDK showing how to use this new feature The key things to note in the sample are A Knockout observable array var dataKo ko observableArray A way to randomize the view model Of course you can add remove elements from the observableArray and RIM will pick up the change and update your map automatically A RIM Map with a tile layer to render the view model client side An instance of isc rim tile requestorLocal which is passed a view model in the constructor options An instance of isc rim tile descriptorLocal which is used to specify the data schema for mapping your view model to the internal format for rendering A custom point renderer that determines how to draw the local data onto tile canvases This approach is very performant and allows for very large collections of local data Rendering to tile canvases instead of generating DOM elements for each feature makes this possible The geometry may be any combinations of points polylines or polygons plus attribute data for the renderer to stylize your data thematically The geometry must be in WKT well

  • Top 5 Reasons to Spatially Enable Your CRM - MapDotNet Blog
    and lower their fees by leveraging control points from prior surveys they d done 3 Visualize CRM entity data within the spatial context of other GIS data or feeds Overlaying geographic data that exists outside of CRM is a very common use case I ve encountered For example the Broward Sheriff s Office also uses the maps to overlay school park daycare and library parcel boundaries in order to measure the distance around an offender s address to see if it intersects a property where children may congregate This functionality in CRM helps BSO comply with state and local ordinances and saves them the time of going into the field to do a measurement Another great example of integrating additional geographic data is from a large restaurant franchise This organization manages their store and supplier locations reasons 4 5 within CRM When a big storm system moves across a region of the US oftentimes their suppliers e g bakeries and protein producers can be impacted By overlaying a live weather feed on top of their store and supplier locations they can anticipate disruptions in the supply chain Here is an example of what a weather overlay combined with store location data looks like 2 Geospatial Business Intelligence and Ad Hoc Spatial Analysis Geospatial business intelligence is always a very hot topic when it comes to CRM data I ve observed this again and again over the past few years The limitation of the out of the box CRM charts and graphs is they can t deal with one of the most important factors of the data the location BI components that display information on an interactive map allow CRM users to account for location in their analysis The following are descriptions of popular geospatial visualization techniques that give prospective to the data Thematic Mapping Thematic mapping capability is the cornerstone of BI and ad hoc analysis Good mapping tools should allow the user to on the fly create classifications and filters In this example locations are classified by both sales data color and sub type shape Drawing and Querying The ability to draw shapes or select features then query your CRM data is also a very important concept in geospatial BI Having this capability in a mapping application gives you the ability to select features from existing layers or draw free form shapes and areas Clustering Clustering allows you to visualize large amounts of data on the map aggregated by density This example goes a step further by applying the classification 2013 Sales Totals color to the cluster Hotspots In this example hotspots are used to visualize the distribution of data normalized by the 2013 Sales Data Tampa and Orlando pop out as having high sales volumes based on density Points The other visualization technique that is common is simply viewing point locations Viewing the individual points works well at the sub count city level when you can click identify the feature Showing a callout with information about the point
