We are excited to announce that SuperWebGIS 3, the newly-released Internet map server software, passes OGC compliance test and is able to fully support 64-bit Environment now.
SuperWebGIS 3 enhances the interoperability of OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) standards, passes the compliance test of OGC WMS 1.3.0, WCS 1.0.0, and WFS 1.0.0., and already obtains the OGC official certification.
WMS, WCS, and WFS are the standards defined by Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC). These standards make the map data from different resources be seamlessly integrated via the Internet by adhering to the same standards. Therefore, client-side users can access the map services by using browsers or the applications supporting OGC standards.
SuperWebGIS 3 is thus able to fulfill cross-platform, cross-domain, cross-system, and cross-databases. This helps organizations interoperate and share the geospatial data more effectively.
On the other hand, SuperWebGIS 3 completely supports 64-bit operating environments, like Windows 7, 2008, 2003, etc.
Compared with 32-bit operating environment, 64-bit operating environment supports larger capacity of system memory, provides more powerful operating efficiency, and enables the database server to support more Geodatabases to deal with multi-user connections in real time.
Therefore, enterprises can develop a high-efficiency, high-quality, and high-scalability map service in a better environment to effectively share the spatial data with others.

1. The Institute of Oceanography at National Taiwan University selected SuperWebGIS for marine research by publishing web services via the Internet to share with multi-users for convenient and efficient survey.
2. The Construction and Planning Agency at Ministry of the Interior selected SuperWebGIS for non-urban land development and budget evaluation by integrating complex data with visualized maps.
3. The Center for Aboriginal Studies at National Chengchi University selected SuperGIS Desktop to display ancient maps with aboriginal data, in order to analyze the inhabitation and immigration information.
4. The Department of Architecture at Lan Yang Institute of Technology purchased SuperGIS Desktop to demonstrate the construction site and the neighbor geographic environment for further study.
5. The Northern Center for Emergency Response of Toxic Substance purchased SuperGIS Desktop to assist the researchers in analyzing the distribution of toxic substance by buffer analysis methods.
6. Instrument Technology Research Center at National Applied Research Laboratories selected SuperPad to go with the survey instruments in the Center to support the conducted mobile GI study.
We are thrilled to announce that SuperWebGIS 3, the latest Internet Map Server Software, is officially launched! SuperWebGIS 3 is able to assist enterprises in publishing dynamic maps and spatial data via the Web efficiently.
Compared with the older version, SuperWebGIS 3 has highly scalable framework, complete GIS objects, and various types of website templates, which can help enterprise publish, display, and share spatial data either in the corporate intranet or the Internet effectively.
Additionally, SuperWebGIS 3 enhances the interoperability with geodatabases and OGC standards.
SuperWebGIS 3 supports numerous commonly-used Geodatabase, such as Microsoft Access, MS SQL Server 2008 Spatial, and Oracle 10i/11g, etc. Thus, it would be more convenient for users to access the spatial data, and the usability of the data can be raised.
As to OGC standards, SuperWebGIS 3 supports various map services conforming to OGC standards, like WMS, WFS, WCS, etc. The trademark licenses are already issued by OGC. Therefore, SuperWebGIS 3 can help users achieve better data sharing under cross-platform, cross-domain, and cross-system environment.
Moreover, SuperWebGIS 3 supports a number of client-end applications. Client-end users can utilize SuperGIS Desktop, SuperPad, and commonly-used browsers (like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera) to utilize the map services published by SuperWebGIS 3 effortlessly.
