Esri Canada has congratulated a Canadian developer, Environmaps, for winning an honorable mention at the recently held AngelHack competition. From Esri… The app leverages ArcGIS, Esri’s geographic information system (GIS) solution, integrated with open-source software and consumer-oriented maps. Through the app, property developers can easily search for a property by address, view data on land use and environmental features, as well as generate maps and PDF reports to support development permit applications. The 67 teams who competed at AngelHack Toronto were given 24 hours to develop a Web app representing their business startup idea. Tu, who works as a land-use planner, conceived the idea for Environmaps and co-developed it with four Web developer friends. See more about the project HERE – Explore Environmaps at: environmaps.com.
