JMap provides instant access to all of the Canadian railway network’s geospatial data

K2 Geospatial, a leading geospatial software company and the editor of JMap, is pleased to announce the creation of the Canadian Rail Portal. Initiated by the Railway Association of Canada (RAC), the Portal was built using JMap, K2 Geospatial’s map-based integration platform. It provides the members of the RAC with a critical and strategic tool.

The idea of the portal arose from a need to provide online access to the Canadian Railway Atlas and its data on Canada’s 45 000-km railway network. Thanks to JMap, the RAC can now offer a map-based overview of the entire network in real time, along with powerful geospatial tools, all of which are accessed through a user-friendly interface. This visual representation of the network results from a consolidation of data from various private and public sources.

The Canadian Rail Portal is poised to become an indispensable tool to plan and manage initiatives in areas such as community involvement, marketing, and emergency response. “The fact that JMap was selected to drive such a project once again confirms the power of the software and its interoperability,” said Jacques Charron, K2 Geospatial’s president. “JMap simplifies systems integration and data consolidation for our members. JMap’s display and geospatial analysis tools provide the portal with the rich functionality and depth of research our users demand,” mentioned Gérald Gauthier, Vice President, Public and Corporate Affairs for RAC.
