User Scenarios

Following user scenarios for the cooperative map usage are possible:

  • Maps are stored in common folder and are not updated. All users open maps from the common folder. Advantage of this solution is its simplicity, disadvantage – common resource becomes a bottleneck – all users open maps from one place, traffic increases, locks become possible on map saving. This option is convenient for small companies, especially if all the users are sitting in one room.
  • Maps are stored in common folder. Application updates maps from this folder periodically or manually via shared resource or FTP(S). After editing local copy is saved automatically into the common folder via shared resource or FTP(S). This option is fine for middle-sized companies, especially if all the users reside in one building.
  • Each branch stores the maps of all branches in its common folder. Maps of other branches are updated periodically in this folder from other branches, e.g. via FTPS. Each branch’s users receive maps of all branches from local server.
