London, Zagreb, November 14, 2011 – GIS Cloud announced on their blog that they have exited beta on Thursday, November 10th. The cloud based geographic information system (GIS) for visualization, sharing, collaboration and publishing of geo data on-line starts offering commercial services although the free service will be kept available as well.
Both existing as well as new GIS Cloud users will have a 15 day trial period during which they can test its functionality. The users will have all the features and the storage at their disposal. Once the trial period has ended, they will be offered to subscribe to commercial services or continue using GIS Cloud with their limited free account. Free accounts will be limited to:
- 1.000 vector features (total number of records)
- 100 MB of raster data (total raster storage)
- 1 WMS layer
- Limited API usage, fair usage policy applies
- No publishing and collaboration
Anyone exceeding these limits will have to adjust their usage or start using available commercial services which among others include:
- Large data storage
- Scalable map publishing infrastructure (serving millions of features and map tiles on the fly)
- Full collaboration (soon with new features)
- Enterprise API usage
- Enterprise SLA
- Co-branding (custom logo and domain name)
- Firewall install (GIS Cloud on your own hardware)
- Full phone and email support
About GIS Cloud
The mission of GIS Cloud is not only to supplement desktop solutions, but extend and enrich their capabilities through the potential the Internet provides. It is a more accessible way of visualizing, analyzing and sharing geospatial data, provided using the software as a service model, but also available free of charge.
The emphasis is on collaboration between colleagues or fellow GIS Cloud users, easy access to data regardless of the user’s location and giving users a chance to quickly and easily publish and access maps on the web or mobile, share them anywhere in the world or use the provided GIS Cloud platform to build geo and location aware applications.
GIS Cloud believes it is the way of giving GIS a new dimension.
