Public authorities are the largest user group of WebOffice. No matter whether municipality, city, country, ministry, research institute or planning office: Use specially developed features, regular product maintenance and avoid resource-intensive in-house developments.

Requirements of our customers Benefit from our long-term project experience and the associated process know-how.

Providing geodata in a flexible WebGIS

View and edit your geodata in an easy-to-use WebGIS user interface via Internet browser. You offer selected data records to the public as a citizen service.

Enable collaboration

In official structures, different departments work with subject-specific and generally used geodata. You must manage this data centrally, make it available to authorized internal users and meet all legal requirements.

Use and extend Esri ArcGIS

Esri ArcGIS provides GIS technology from the world market leader. With WebOffice you can continue to use and expand your existing Esri infrastructure. Technically, WebOffice is a server object extension for ArcGIS Server.

Functions and workflows WebGIS functions adapted for use by public authorities

  • Upload geo-referenced photos for documentation and retrieve them on a map

Use advanced printing functions

  • Serial printing: Distribute map sections over several pages on the same scale
