Global Insight is the leading world map and gazetteer featuring up-to-date political mapping (1:1M & 1:3M scale, with quarterly updates) and over 532,000 named places. Place names are spelled in local and alternative form (English conventional, second national language, foreign language and long/short) and include accented characters. The extensive gazetteer provides superior hit rates when searching or global geocoding by place name.
A major enhancement in the new version of Global Insight is the addition of Daylight Saving Time (DST) to the Time Zone layer. This details the exact period when DST is observed (if at all) and allows precise time differences between locations to be calculated. The Time Zone (with DST) map layer is available separately.
Global Insight Plus builds on the strength of Global Insight to form the premier digital reference map of the world. The product consists of all Global Insight layers plus roads, railways/railroads, airports (including IATA code), ports (including UN/LOCODE) and drainage features.
Global Insight products are an ideal data set for any organisation with an international focus and requirement to utilise state of the art GIS / desktop mapping. The product has a proven track record in many market sectors including telecommunications, insurance, media, aviation, and satellite based asset tracking. Attractive licensing has resulted in Global Insight having particular strength in applications deployed on the Internet or corporate Intranet. Europa Technologies also promotes OEM type arrangements where data products are subsumed into bespoke systems.
