The WA Information Technology and Telecommunications Awards (WAITTA) have been conducted annually since 1991 by the WA Branch of the Australian Computer Society Inc. The purpose of the WAITTA is to recognise outstanding performance and contributions by members of the IT&T community in Western Australia.
At the annual prestigious black-tie Western Australian Information Technology and Telecommunications Awards (WAITTA) dinner on Friday 18th March, the Amristar software engineering group scooped awards in three of the ten categories for its iDelve Web Mapping Technology, which is revolutionising the way maps are published via the Internet. The awards were in the Innovation, Online, and Product categories.
Existing iDelve customers include the WA Department of Environment, Transperth, The WA Tourism Commission and SmartTrack, a fleet management service company. Other organisations actively exploring the use of iDelve include other Commonwealth, State and Local government agencies, public utilities, transport/logistics companies, and tourism and real-estate portals.
iDelve allows users to pan and zoom smoothly and continuously over maps and images. Mouse-over and mouse-click provide instant access to related data and information delivery is smooth, fast and responsive.
Map objects on-screen
The system also enables the user to interact with discrete on-screen objects (rather than traditional maps that are rendered images) even while data streams to him. Additional, higher-resolution refinements are provided as needed without having reloading the map – improving efficiency and speed.
Publication from multiple sources
The iDelve system enables customers to incorporate maps and imagery from in-house, remote and mobile sources, and to seamlessly integrate them into the published map direct-from-source using the Internet as the communications medium. Published maps are therefore always up-to-date. Data replication is eliminated, and data management costs are significantly reduced.
