PARTHIAN SYSTEMS
Web Development and Mapping Services

Online Mapping Services for Business, Local Charity and Community Mapping

  • Development of Web Pages with specialism in mapping. Add Google Maps, Open Street Map (free data you can edit) and Ordnance Survey mapping.
  • Embed in your web page. Or creation of a Single Page Application (SPA) to map data.
  • GIS Analysis and Development - e.g. QGIS, Ordnance Survey OpenSpace, MapBox, PostGIS Spatial Databases, Google Maps, OpenLayers API etc.
  • Community Mapping. Local charities or groups can map phenomenon such as Graveyards, War Casualties - examples below. Perhaps environmental mapping: an Orchard Map? Or a database of rare trees in a woodland or other plants. Easy to use for non map experts, no expensive equipment. No complex map software to maintain. Low cost solution.

 

Most of my mapping clients prefer to keep their development a secret. So I'm unable to point you to many of my projects. I support products for the web map product supplier  BlueSky International.

 

Archaeology and Graveyard Mapping Examples

Volunteer Archaeology Map is a prototype system built to demonstrate a range of web mapping features. As part of ongoing development of Fortingall Roots Map Project.

Interactive Map Data Filtering Mapbase and Open Street Map
Mapbox and Open Street Map Data. Display GeoJSON markers. Allowing very accurate mapping way beyond the simplistic Google Maps.
Maps can be edited without any great skill and will appear on the map. 
Markers added by the custom editing tools shown below.

 

 

War Memorial Community Mapping Project

The examples below show the editing system used by volunteer editors for a project to map the soldiers, sailors and airmen listed on the Bo'ness War Memorial. This map shows where the fallen were buried but also where they were commemorated. Often individuals are mentioned on other graves or plaques in gardens of rememberance or in churches.

Additionally, the system maps where they were wounded or killed in action. With a system to indicate how accurate the location is. Many mapping systems put an X marks the spot even when there is doubt over the actual accuracy of the position. Circles of varying sizes are used to give the viewer a feel for how accurate the information is. Perhaps if they visit a World War 1 battlefield they may uncover evidence to improve the accuracy. This can be fed back to the editors who can adjust the position and reduce the accuracy circle to indicate increased confidence in the data.

Additionally, the system has a Timeline feature. Viewers can play a month by month casualty map of World War 1. 

This project is in development. More data will arrive soon. (Written May 2018 - content expected throughout the summer of 2018).

Visit the Bo'ness War Memorial Website to watch development. Note, only editors can see the edit windows below.

 

Map Timeline of Events for Historical Mapping
Map Timeline of Events 
With a few minutes training users can enter specific information for Map markers - including time and date.
These link to the main website holding detailed information on the marker.
And permit visitors to watch an Interactive Timeline of Events. In this case Great War Casualties.

 

 

Interactive Map Data Entry Form for Community Mapping
Each Map Product can have its own Data Structure. In this example, a military focused map has Date of Death, Service Number etc.
Accuracy is used here to create different sized circles indicating how sure the user is of the accuracy of the marker.
If more accurate information is determined (perhaps by GPS or field trip) the Accuracy size can be reduced. 
Markers can easily be moved.

 

 

Map Data Table Create Edit Update Delete
Stylish and powerful data table. Search for, Copy and Delete Database Rows in the browser.

 

Build Your Own Community Mapping Project

Want to know more or start development of your own community mapping project? Perhaps you have an old graveyard project or something completely different. Maybe an ancient orchard, an archaeological site (note that archaeological digs need more precise 3D type mapping), or an historic site which needs a lot of data but has a spatial element.
