To the casual observer, EMAML is just a powerful new way of building highly functional geographic applications that harness either ESRI(R) ArcIMS(tm) or our own map-TV server.
EMAML allows you to weave interactive maps and related user interface elements into web pages, for instant functionality, by simply adding tags.
EMAML also allows developers with no web experience
to write Visual Basic applications, that are 100% web enabled, require no plugins etc on the client -but do not require any special web programming.
What EMAML is really about however is enabling users to surf your GIS. Sure, you can write applications incredibly easily with EMAML -but the revolution is all about throwing away the "one size fits all" model of monolithic Applications (in the use of which users are "trained") and replacing them with interactive pages that bridge the gap between application and content.
SpatialMedia's hosting services are now EMAML powered. Our Intramap property enquiry application for ArcIMS(tm) or map-TV is built solely using EMAML tags. EMAML Studio, for further customising tag based content in Visual Basic is in Beta form. Please contact Peter Fraser if you would like to receive a demonstration of EMAML or join the beta program.
