Finding alternatives for a deprecated technology
NSW RMS approached NGIS when it was announced in January 2015 that the Google Maps Engine, a platform used to host a range of critical solutions, was being deprecated.
To assist in finding a replacement, NGIS performed a technology assessment with a view to understand the environment in which NSW RMS operated and assess the suitability and criteria of alternative digital mapping solutions to ensure they were equipped with the key functions NSW RMS required of a platform.
NGIS recommended CARTO as the replacement mapping technology for NSW RMS due to its flexible functionality, including:
- Integration of data from various sources
- Lightweight, intuitive dashboards
- Simple sharing of insights to stakeholders
Furthermore, CARTO enabled NSW RMS to reduce the number of programs they were using to operate and manage information.
