SuperMap Service GIS has taken full advantage of Web Services and SOA to facilitate interoperability and heterogeneous integration and aggregation. Your Web services can be integrated by other systems.
SuperMap Service GIS products adopt an open structure, and different components are divided and encapsulated at different levels according to different grain sizes. SuperMap Service GIS introduces the component development mode of C/S structure to the web service system development of different levels. It reduces the development difficulty of different level services.
The core of SuperMap iServer Java, developed based on Objects Java, is further based on UGC written in standard C/C++, thus it supports multiple operating systems such as Windows, Linux, IBM AIX and HP UX. The C++-based UGC core also contributes to high-efficient data access, map display and spatial analysis functions, and supports the manipulation and computation of complex spatial data.
The increasing volume of imagery data is a great challenge for Web GIS applications. SuperMap iServer has optimized its core display engine for imagery to give you a head start in publishing terabytes of imagery.
SuperMap iServer Java fully supports 64-bit CPUs and operating systems.

SuperMap Mobile GIS is specially designed for field survey, intelligent transportation, precise agriculture, facility inspection, etc. It provides a ready-to-use mobile Desktop GIS as well as the SDKs for customizing such applications and especially car navigation applications.
The SuperMap Mobile GIS includes:
Supermap Flex Mobile is a suit of AIR mobile secondary package based on Adobe Flex technology. This development package provides you with mobile GIS application solutions with the support of SuperMap iClient 6R for Flex, allowing you to realize map browsing, labeling, query, editing, analysis, etc. in the AIR environment. Meanwhile, offline data reading is supported, that is, maps can be accessed without internet access.
SuperMap Flex Mobile supports two ways of accessing maps offline. The first one is online-offline interactive access. While users accessing maps online, the map data will be cached to local root directory automatically. The data will be acquired from local for repeat access or access without internet connection. The next one is accessing local offline data package. Data will be acquired directly from the local package, independent of any network communication.
The offline data storage function employs the online-offline interactive access mode, caching the accessed maps to local root directory. While the maps are accessed for the second time or there is no internet connection, maps will be directly required from the local storage. Meanwhile, users can delete cache data conveniently to eliminate the effects on memory capacity.
Offline data storage enables you to browse maps you have accessed before even without internet access. However, maps you can access without internet access depend on what you have accessed before. If you have never accessed a map before, you can neither access it when there is no internet connection.
Here SueprMap Flex Mobile provides you with another way to access maps offline, that is, to access maps the offline data package (compliant to MBTiles rules) with com.supermap.web.mapping. MBTilesLayer . The essential of this method is accessing the data stored at local, therefore, there is no need to have any internet communication only if you have prepared data package compliant to MBTiles rules.
