Shape files are a commonly used GIS file format developed by ESRI, which is supported by GIS platforms such as QGIS, ArcGIS and many more. Using iBISS®, you can now import and export shape files of different layers of network assets (cable design, pits, trenches, etc.), enabling iBISS to consume and share data with a vast majority of GIS platforms.
The ability to view and interact the network assets by layers, and now the ability to import and export different layers gives iBISS® users a new level of flexibility and ease of use, allowing data import/export processes to be streamlined and greatly reducing the turnaround time.
Especially in environments where multiple design and construction partners are working on the network and updates need to be imported / exported quickly, this new feature allows teams to collaborate at the simple click of a button.
At IMMCO we’re always looking for ways to innovate and bring intelligent solutions to the cable and telecom world. Increasing the amount of automation and providing iBISS® users with more self-configurable functionalities are the next steps we’re looking to take.
