CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA), a specialist in the collection, analysis, and management of environmental data, announced the implementation of the newly released EDGSonline 2.0, the next generation of its web-based mapping and data visualization platform developed by sister company, GeoFac Systems Inc.
Access to data and documentation is crucial for sharing information about a project, region, or incident. CSA’s Environmental Data and Geospatial Services (EDGS) provides comprehensive solutions to enhance the accessibility and meaning of data, whether in geospatial, tabular, document, video, or image format. CSA has worked closely with GeoFac to develop the custom cloud-based EDGSonline platform, which enables registered users to visualize, access, query, and download data using only a web browser.
“EDGSonline is used by CSA’s subject matter experts, partners, and clients to communicate, collaborate, and centralize deliverables,” said Dr. Jodi Harney, manager of CSA’s EDGS team. “Listening to our clients and users, we have worked with GeoFac to upgrade the application to include new tools and a more progressive interface, completely redesigned with the user experience in mind.”
Enhancements in EDGSonline 2.0 include greater security, more user tools, advanced querying capabilities, improved document management, and integrated videospatial capabilities. Key features now include:
EDGSonline 2.0 is delivered to clients as a cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) solution licensed on an annual subscription basis or in association with a particular project. For more information on EDGS, click here.
