Map Savvy WMS is available immediately at the following URL: http://register.onterrasystems.com/wms.aspx. The cost for using the OnTerra Web Mapping Service image capture application is either $1 per user per month if the user already has a Bing maps license, or $2 per user per month if the user also needs Bing maps licensing.
A long-time Microsoft Business Partner, OnTerra has a license to access Bing maps imagery, and has developed MapSavvy WMS software that's designed to capture still images of Bing maps imagery. In many cases, users can capture a Web map image via MapSavvy WMS and integrate it into a document, so it can be printed as part of the document itself. (Functionality is contingent on the type of WMS software client that's being used.) Maximum size of the images that can be captured is 2,000 pixels by 2,000 pixels.
"Web mapping images are being incorporated more and more frequently into architecture and civil engineering drawings, along with pipeline, transportation, and utilities infrastructure project documentation," noted Steven Milroy, OnTerra Systems president and co-founder. "MapSavvy WMS provides an inexpensive way to capture still images from Bing maps, and the application is very easy to use."
"Bing maps provides the most extensive and detailed worldwide coverage of earth mapping," said Patrick Campbell, OnTerra Systems Chief Operating Officer and co-founder. "OnTerra partnered with Microsoft to bring this image-capture application to market, and it provides for extensive worldwide coverage at an incredibly affordable price."
