What are the main MapX applications ?

MapX can be customized to suit a range of different stakeholder needs and processes. Any of our client websites can also be "Powered by MapX" in order to maintain their own branding while benefiting from the MapX spatial data infrastructure and mapping capabilities. Currently, we support six main applications:
Mobile and field data support
We offer a range of tools to geolocate field data and photos collected through mobile phones and tablets. Changes can be monitored over time using our timesliders.
Shared data pool for stakeholders
 We can help stakeholders agree on a shared data pool that can serve as the basis for dialogue, decision making and compliance monitoring.
Agreement monitoring
We can help stakeholders establish baselines and monitor compliance with different agreements. These can range from specific contracts and concessions to multi-lateral environmental agreements.
Supply chain risk management
We can aggregate a range of different risks across an operational area and help stakeholders develop risk heat maps for supply chain due diligence.
Land use planning
We can help stakeholders access relevant natural resource and environmental data to support local level landuse plans. This can include aggregating data from multiple sources including government, private sector, and academia. 
Spatial data infrastructure
We offer a complete cloud-based spatial data infrastructure solution to support national and international projects and processes.
