In our current newsletter, it was already mentioned: displaying assets on an external map.
So why are we doing this?
Some of our clients maintain geographic coordinates on objects such as buildings or installations to view their position in a digital map.
Roads in large factory areas are not always digitised for a variety of reasons or unknown for navigation devices. Outdoor assets are often not directly identifiable. For example, it is often not sufficient to have a street or building name to identify specific objects.
Valuable time is wasted by extensive searches. Save yourself this time by tracking down the objects locations with the help of coordinates that provide accurate navigation to the destination.
Even Indiana Jones had to realize that his statement “and X never, ever marks the spot” is wrong.
However, it is also true that not everyone has the right coordinates such as N49° 41’26.905 E8° 36’33.451 or 32U 471820 5504327 for his assets to mark the spot.
Certainly, there are basic address information such as street, house number, postal code. We pass this information on to a map service in order to visualize the position.
It is irrelevant whether the information is stored directly within the corresponding object or on a predecessor or an element in the object structure.
It is easily possible for external employees and service providers to switch directly from speedikon® C to the navigation and to precisely locate the object you are looking for.
