GXP Xplorer is a revolutionary data management application that makes it easy to locate, retrieve, and share geospatial data on a local network or across an enterprise.
BAE Systems designed the software to provide a convenient way to access images, terrain, features, GeoPDF® images and maps, PowerPoint® files, videos, text documents, and numerous other data sources. With a single query, perform geospatial, temporal, free text, or advanced metadata searches without logging on to multiple systems.
Using powerful search techniques, the application scans for files across existing external data systems, on shared network drives, and in an analyst’s local shoe box. It quickly locates files and builds an online catalog for easy retrieval. GXP Xplorer keeps track of all available data by file type, and displays geotagged search results graphically on a map with supporting text and thumbnail images. Data can be downloaded, or opened directly into other applications.
GXP Xplorer is an open enterprise solution that scales from a mobile device, to a laptop, to an enterprise server configuration with Web browser access. It fits in with existing data stores, runs in virtual environments, and can be tailored for one or multiple users. The application supports Microsoft® Windows®Server, XP, Vista®, and Windows 7. Support for additional operating systems, including Solaris x86 is planned for future versions.
