Smallworld Web Solutions
Efficient solutions only arise from a firm understanding of customer needs, coupled with the technology and application foundation to deliver an IT solution. By building on the strength of the engineering-based solutions, GE and its partners work together to deliver a range of solutions that use web technology to meet needs of other users within an organization, in applications that are small in functionality but with a big focus on addressing a business need in the simplest form possible.
Smallworld GeoSpatial Server is the platform for accessing logic and transactional information from Smallworld databases and applications. It provides comprehensive support for building scalable integrations and includes a suite of Open Geospatial Consortium compliant and certified services.
Extensions to GeoSpatial Server released with Smallworld Network Viewer form an enhanced platform for building rich web applications. Smallworld Network Viewer is the foundation web application that acts as the platform for delivering GE’s strategy of Office Web Apps using browser technology. It uses modern development tools working on HTML5 compatible browsers combined with extensions to the Smallworld GeoSpatial Server product specifically for streamlined development of high performance web applications.
The server extensions include:
Smallworld Network Viewer
Smallworld Network Viewer provides a browser-based interface that is designed to be familiar and intuitive for business users who are not specialists in GIS. It provides a responsive look and feel using familiar web mapping technology, combined with visualization of the network assets and the ability to search the Smallworld held GIS data so that asset information and customer locations can be easily explored through the user interface.
Smallworld Network Viewer can be used with a number of mapping providers, including Google Maps, Microsoft Bing and OpenStreetMap. When coupled with Google Maps, it adds Google-based location searching, Google Street View® visualization, and Google® street mapping into the application.

One example of usage is for customer service representatives looking to verify customer addresses against service areas held within Smallworld. By following a browser bookmark to Smallworld Network Viewer, the customer address can be quickly verified using a Google search, and network coverage areas can be shown by making a data layer visible. Similarly, network assets and customer connections can be visualized by switching on additional layers to determine if the property is served by an existing connection.
Smallworld Network Viewer+
Smallworld Network Viewer+ extends the reach of your intelligent network data to new audiences within your enterprise, allowing contractors, remote office workers and engineers to have secured access to the data they require without creating workload on your centralized GIS users.
Electric Office Web
Utilities have hundreds, sometimes thousands, of users that require access to critical network data. Providing a full desktop client to all those consumers of the data can be very expensive. Smallworld Electric Office combined with Smallworld Electric Office Web provides a less expensive, robust query, view, print solution providing access to critical asset data across the enterprise.
Electric Office Web was built on top of Smallworld Network Viewer and is designed to help extend access to critical network data required to perform key business processes. Capabilities include:

Network Inventory Gateway
Smallworld Network Inventory is a highly scalable portfolio of products that provide an end-to-end view of multi-vendor, multi-technology networks. The main components of the portfolio (Physical Network Inventory and Logical Network Inventory) are 'thick client' applications, with all users having access to a comprehensive suite of functionality. However, many potential users of Physical Network Inventory data require read-only access to the information related to their job. To meet this need Smallworld Network Inventory Gateway provides ‘thin client’ Internet and Intranet access to data held within Physical Network Inventory, via a web-based front end. Network Inventory Gateway consists of two solutions each targeted at different business needs.
Network Inventory Gateway provides a browser-based interface that is designed to be familiar and intuitive for business users who are not specialists in GIS. It provides a responsive and simple look and feel using familiar web mapping technology, combined with visualization of the network assets and the ability to search the Smallworld held data so that asset information and customer locations can be easily explored through the user interface. Network Inventory Gateway is designed to be coupled with industry leading web mapping providers such as Google Maps, Microsoft® Bing® and OpenStreetMap.
