Encompass desktop applications include Zoom for map viewing, Gist for analysis, and Avec for full editing. These applications range from simple-to-use (requiring little training) to full featured, but they share a common look and feel.
Recon extends Encompass mapping to the field on tablets and phones.
Numerous task-specific Encompass desktop applications allow domain experts to work quickly with maps and related data to do storm sewer analysis, permit tracking, front-counter service response, project coordination, pavement management, assessor mapping, public safety dispatch, and more.
Geodesy started developing Encompass in 1998 with the City of Palo Alto (CA), Wake County (NC), and the City of Raleigh (NC). Since that time, a number of other local government agencies around the U.S. have contributed time, money, and expertise to Encompass.
The City of Palo Alto and Cochise County, for example, use Encompass applications with the Encompass map engine as their GIS. Others use Encompass applications to view and manage their Esri SDE data through ArcObjects.
The consortium is informal – the participating local government agencies have no direct financial interaction or formal agreement. Each benefits from the other’s enhancements to the Encompass set of components and applications by making their contributions available to the others through Geodesy.
Joining the consortium can be as simple as having Geodesy create or customize an Encompass application for you.
