Updating maps on magellan
Ground Control has been a leader in auto-deploy satellite antennas with thousands of organizations since 2002.
After pressing the "Deploy" button on the Toughsat TS2 controller, the dish will deploy and auto acquire the satellite signal...
Note : as it's impossible to load several thousands of markers directly with Google Maps, MIS has developed some tools to achieve this feature, allowing to set and run a geographical database (Postgre SQL/Post GIS) with all the data for order to only plot selective markers on the displayed map corresponding to the screen area.
Google Maps (GM) on the web and Google Earth (GE) as a 3D interactive atlas software application are ideal tools for sharing geographical information in a simple way.
So the user can access through Google viewers to all the range of NOAA raster maps, zooming in and out, panning in a continuous way for selecting the specified map scale automatically (so the appropriate map), by simply sliding the mouse roll.
11/21/2006 : Google gives the ability to show simple kml/kmz files (as made in GE) in GM : so you can add your own imagery directly on top of GM.
