Appendix 2: About Geo Map

Geo Data Creation & Geo Map Application


FoundationLumiraEsri Implementation

Lumira provides database (NAVTEQ) to identify and map geographic data.

Esri provides the map info for displaying. (Esri account necessary)

Methods of Geo Data Creation

By NameMap with geo data on NAVTEQ by name

By Latitude/LongitudeDirectly display the location on Esri Map

Limitations

The geo data can only be assigned to levels at Country/District/Sub District/City/Other

When creating geographic hierarchy from geo data in dataset:

By Name: Not all language is applicable (e.g.: Japanese N/A); Area with fewer population than
100 thousand is unable to be identified.
By Latitude/Longitude: Latitude/Longitude data should be prepared by each target area.
Map Customizing

If required to display the map info in a customized way instead of a default way (standard Esri
Map), making use of Esri Online to customize the map is possible.

Confidential

2015 ABeam Consulting Ltd.

Methods of Geo Data Creation: By Name


Prerequisite:
Geo data (e.g.: city name) is in identifiable language (e.g.: English)
The target area (e.g. city) exists on NAVTEQ database (With a population larger than 100,000)

Map Customizing
Lumira provides an option of Esri Custom Service to display the map info in a customized way.

Map is customized and connected by My content on Esri Online Website. (Already existed
resource on website is available to be applied)

Customized map can be customized and applied by a whole organization registered on Esri Online.

Example: Specify one area; Add emphasizing color to one area; Add fixed marker in one area, etc.
