(please note this example is entirely ficticious
and is only intended to give an example of the kind of report
you can produce using MapEagle.)

MapEagle is GIS based Report Writer that provides an easy
and convenient way for carrying out site sensitivity analysis.
It allows you to automatically carry out buffer searches around
a site and outputs the results (maps and the data) directly
to Microsoft Word or PDF. MapEagle is an invaluable tool for
any professional who needs to analyse and report on data contained
within a GIS as a routine part of their job.
Some of the potential uses are discussed
Using Map Eagle for Local Authority
Environmental searches have become
a standard part of the conveyancing process as both buyers
and lenders become aware of the liabilities associated with
contaminated land and other potential pollution hazards.
As local authorities are under a duty to
inspect their areas in order to identify land that may be
contaminated, they already possess a great deal of data on
the issue, most of which is stored within a GIS and linked
database (i.e. GeoEnviron).
Their main problem is making this data available to the public
in an accessible format.
A number of leading local authorities have
begun using MapEagle to enable them to carry out site sensitivity
analysis and to generate reports that they are then able to
pass onto their clients. As well as being able to provide
reports on the status of a site and its surroundings, they
are able to ensure that responsible advice is given on the
possible need for remediation.
As well as providing local authorities an
ideal opportunity to provide a valuable, quality controlled
service to the public, MapEagle also gives them the opportunity
to generate revenue, by charging for the reports they provide.
This revenue can then be re-invested into the Part IIA investigation
Other Uses of MapEagle
MapEagle has a wide range of potential uses.
As long as the data is within your GIS, MapEagle is able to
report on it.
Examples of other areas where MapEagle can
be used include:
- Generating desk study and Environmental Site Assessment
reports - MapEagle could be used alongside Pocket
ESA our Environmental site Assessment reporting tool.
- Screening of planning applications in both Environmental
and Planning departments
- Asset management
- Archaeological investigations
- Countryside management
- Crime reporting and policing etc.
Key Benefits of using MapEagle
Accurate - Automating
the task of responding to environmental enquires reduces
the likelihood of errors being made.
Cost Effective - MapEagle
presents an opportunity to generate revenue
so that you not only recoup your investment in the tool
itself, but also in any data purchased and time spent
gathering and digitising data in house.
Instant Access - MapEagle
is easy to install and set up.
Flexible - MapEagle
can be used for strategic analysis as well as for responding
to environmental information requests.
MapEagle is available as a standalone application
that utilises MapInfo formatted tab files or as an extension
for ESRI's ArcMap 9.x. Both applications are compatible with
Microsoft Word versions 98 through to 2003.
