Web 2.0 relates to a suite of technologies based around user-generated content, and cloud computing. The web today includes blogs, wikis and social networking sites, such as Facebook and Flickr that let everyone have their say and publish to the world at large. The web now comprises a rapidly expanding set of applications that fulfil the old Sun Systems marketing slogan, “the network is the computer”.
Importantly, Web 2.0 has redefined how people utilise the web and opened up a huge number of opportunities to reach out to friends, colleagues and customers and deliver innovative services.
How can Spatial Vision assist you to make effective use of Web 2.0?
Spatial Vision can work with you to implement a Web 2.0 site, including mapping (if required), to engage with stakeholders to gather and share information (crowdsourcing) and build an online community. These web sites can be based on open source content management systems or be custom developed if required.
Our Web 2.0 mapping sites can make use of Google Maps or use open source mapping components. We can help you set up and operate the web site and display your data, including hosting it for you.
