Our Goal: As Easy and Flexible as Possible

Mappetizer is an "out of the box solution". That means you make high quality interactive web mapping projects, without having to know anything about browser and Web server technology. Nevertheless we want you to have as less restrictions as possible, so you can make individual GIS Mapping projects, no "one fits all" solutions.

At this place we want to show you the possibilites of Mappetizer. Please have a look at our examples or just try out our software and load down the evaluation copy.

The result of an export will always be a folder with different XML, SVG, Javascript and HTML files, which can be stored anywhere.

Please have a look on our help videos on YouTube:

Mapping and Visualization

Each online GIS project has its own tasks and goals. For this Mappetizer allows you to add different map components, like:

  • Legend to turn on and off individual layers,
  • Overview map,
  • Scale bar,
  • Scale display and scale specifying,
  • Ready-made templates, which can be easily customized after export,
  • Full access to Dojo widgets, to enrich your website with various interactive features.

Map Navigation

Mappetizer provides different tools to navigate fast and comfortable on your map. For this you have buttons like zooming in or out and panning. Further buttons are for back to original view, go back to previous extent, go to next extent.

Overview Map

An overview map helps you to keep the view when you are zoomed in.

Object Selection

Another way for fast navigation is the "Object Selection". This allows you to zoom to or highlight the features listed in a dropdown list on your page. For example, this option is useful to head for particular administration units (states, counties) or POI's on your map.

Spatial Bookmarks (only Mappetizer for ArcGIS)

Spatial bookmarks ("AOIBookmark") which are defined in your ArcMap project are added as a dropdown list to your web project. This gives you the possibility to head for specific places on your map.

Interacting with Maps

MapTips and Hyperlinks

MapTips are taken over from ArcMap, so you don't have to make any settings in the wizard. Mappetizer for ArcGIS also supports multiline map tips.

Also Hyperlinks are supported. Directly as a link when you click on the map, or as a link within the tool Identify or the Attribute table. Mappetizer supports Web addresses as well as E-mail addresses.

Identifying Features on the Map

This is equivalent to the Identify tool in ArcMap. When you click on a feature in the map, the attributes of the feature will be displayed in a new browser window or on the main page. The results are displayed as a list or as a bar chart (for this have a look at an example below).
If you have pictures of the object stored in ArcGIS as field type raster, Mappetizer copies and resamples these picture files automatically in your Web application and displays them in the browser.

Attribute Table

If desired you can add the attribute table for each layer in your Web project. The table icon will be drawn right of the check box in the legend. If you click on this icon a new browser window will open with the attributes of all fields you specified in ArcMap.
When moving your mouse over the rows or click on a row (Silverlight solution), the specific objects in the map will be highlighted.

Query Builder (only Mappetizer for ArcGIS)

With the help of the query builder you are able to search for specific objects. The query builder icon will be drawn right of the check box in the legend and a new window will be opened with the query builder, or the query builder is integrated within a tab. The user can build the query expression by either clicking on fields, operators, and values, or by typing it in. By clicking the "Select" button, the selected features will be displayed in a table and the specific objects are highlighted in the map. Clicking the "Select and Zoom" button additionally zooms to the selected features.

Measuring and Coordinate Read-out

Mappetizer provides comfortable tools for measuring distances and areas, and for displaying coordinates.

Location Search (only Mappetizer for ArcGIS)

Mappetizer offers address geocoding capabilities. The user can type in an address (plus street number) and after a successfull search, the application will zoom to this location and visualize the street number with a dot. The street data are alternatively stored in a XML file or in a MySQL database.

The location search functionalities are only available for the SVG/HTML solution.

If you don't know the lovely city of Freising, pick up a streetname to test the application:

  • Vimystrasse (No: 1b)
  • Max-Lehner-Strasse (No: 18)
  • Asamstrasse (No: 8)
  • Marienplatz (No: 1)

More functionalities

Support of WMS-Layer, OpenStreetMap, ArcGIS Online Services, and Bing Maps

Mappetizer for ArcGIS supports layers which are defined as Web Map Services on the base of the OGC-standard specification. These WMSLayers can be included in your ArcMap project like every other layer. The required parameters will be analyzed so they can displayed within the browser in your web application.

Basemaps which are added to your data frame are also supported (OpenStreetMap, ArcGIS Online services). As far as you have a Bing Map Licence you can also include those in your web map application.

Cluster maps for point layer

Point clustering allows a scale based clustering of point geometries which are inside a defined area. This allows a better reading of maps. There are two options:

  • Clusters are displayed as circles. The count of geometries inside the cluster is shown as a number inside the circle.
  • The different symbol types are displayed as thumbnails.

Access to other Webservies: Wikipedia (GeoNames) and Location Search (OpenStreetMap)

Mappetizer for ArcGIS supports access to OpenStreetMap, for you a good way to get access to free street data and not being dependent on Google maps etc. OpenStreetMap also offers location search.
The Wikipedia Geocoding Webservice by GeoNames is supported as well.

Display of Statistics

Graphs (only Mappetizer for ArcGIS)

Mappetizer supports graphs which are created in ArcMap. If the graph is related to a layer in your map, there is a link between the graph and the map: while moving the mouse over the data graph, the corresponding feature in the map will be highlighted.

Link to example
Link to example

Chart Mapping (only Mappetizer for ArcGIS)

Chart maps (feature data with pie, bar or column chart symbols drawn on the map) which are defined in ArcMap are exported to the web map project. While moving the mouse over the chart, the values are displayed and the specific feature will be highlighted.

Time Series

Display Object Information as a Graph (only Mappetizer for ArcGIS)

Within the tool Identifying Features on the Map you can also display the feature information as a bar graph. This possibility is very useful for time series.

Working with Big File Sizes

It is difficult to say how big your GIS data can be, until the Web application looses its practicability. This depends of course on the amount of features, but also on their geometry. For this we encourage you to download our evaluation copy and do intensive testing with your own data.
To get an idea what is possible, we provide an examples:

The 12.019 municipal administrations in Germany

"Generalize geometry" to Enhance Loading Speed (only Mappetizer for ArcGIS)

Mappetizer for ArcGIS offers functionalites to generalize geometries (based on algorithms inside ArcGIS). With this, loading time can be decreased. It is especially to consider with line layers, as there will be no topological errors when simplified.
It might be also a possibility for layers only visible at small scales.

Customization, play ground

You will find more examples and applications - beyond the functionalities which Mappetizer supports - under Services.
