Mapping by CookandKaye
Google maps to open source GIS
CookandKaye have a guilty secret. We are map geeks. If it can be displayed on a map, we want to do it. Ideally, we want to put it on the web so everyone can see it. Increasingly, there are now the tools to do just that.

You can't really miss web-mapping these days, what with Google Maps and Earth, Microsoft Live Local, Flickr Geo-tagging, Mashups and so on. CookandKaye can help you leverage this trend, and get your data onto the web in an interactive, intuitive format. We can work with KML for full integration into Google products, or even provide you with a fully-featured alternative to Google, called OpenLayers, that can work with a wider variety of data formats and even on an internal intranet whilst still maintaining the familiar interface for ease of use.
If you would like something bespoke, and totally unique, CookandKaye can build flash-based interactive mapping to your exact specifications. This can be fully integrated into your web site, or a standalone product for teaching, interactive cds, or publicity purposes.
If you have dedicated hosting, or are permitted to install software on your web server, the possibilities for more advanced mapping applications are endless. If you need a web-based GIS, with all the tools to interrogate and manipulate your data, CookandKaye can advise on the options available. Once you've made your choice, CookandKaye can install and fully configure the software and get your GIS up and running.
