Oilfield Use

HyperMap is the all in one tool for GIS business solutions in the OilPatch. From dispatching oilfield crews to bidding jobs, HyperMap will surpass any tool, GIS or otherwise, on the market (even our own). Designed for field use by inspectors, surveyors and project managers. Designed for both communicating with GPS units in the field and any GIS system from your office location. (Please see below - HyperMap for the Oilfield section for detailed outline of product features and uses).

Gas Co-op Use

HyperMap is the all in one tool for smaller organizations requiring an easy connection between what the office wants and what the field needs, and visa versa. 'PatchMap® data-set is the embedded base data-set (kept current by SkyBase automatically). HyperMap can satisfy multiple rolls within the organization. Designed for both communicating with GPS units in the field and any GIS system in your office, or even being the GIS system in your office. HyperMap can do everything from overlaying engineered route designs (or building them yourself) to dispatching service crews to Quality Controlling leak inspection data supplied moments before. Flashing information back and forth to Garmin GPS units for easy deployment is a button away. Communicating to Engineering and Government Departments with dataset extraction is built in. No waiting 6-8 months to see what you did yesterday. The tool you always wanted but didn't know how to ask for it, now you won't know what you did without it !

Municipal Use

HyperMap is the office / field interface tool that keeps the mother-ship GIS secure yet is able to utilize any data-set necessary for field use, where it belongs, in the field. Organizing construction projects, weed control, grading / snowplow monitoring or any other heavily administrated employment just got easier. Emergency services are simply more prepared if they are all looking at the same page. Have a look at our dynamic instantaneous MapMeeting function. Want to have Google StreetView-like access to all of your roads? Seek out UC360 tools from SkyBase. Do you want everyone to be able to operate a GIS system that does all of these things? If so, HyperMap is a must have tool for you.

First Nations Use

HyperMap is the all in one tool for typical First Nation GIS requirements.This program is quick and easy to learn, making it feasible to have multiple users trained in no time at all. As HyperMap is a real GIS to the level required for internal use and Government communications, tribal information is kept on-site with simple (automated) systems to have secure off-site backup is built right in. HyperMap allows different parts of the organization to be working on a project simultaneously. There is often a separation of personnel duties between the historical documentation and the native consultation administration, where they should be able to work very closely together. With HyperMap they will. Navigation to oil and gas locations is simplified as 'PatchMap' is the base data-set of HyperMap. We keep it current behind the scene, with changes coming in each time the program is opened, PatchMap can also be embedded into Garmin GPS devices for field navigation. All this and more!

AVL - GIS use

PatchMap is the base data-set for HyperMap and can also be leveraged for AVL (Automated Vehicle Location) purposes. It can also be leveraged in regular GIS system as a WMS (Web Map Service) including several web feature extraction capabilities.

Outdoor Adventurer Use

At SkyBase we know regular adventurers have need of the greatest map system around as well. Whether you are an Outfitter, Swift Water Kayak-er or even Mountaineer, you can put HyperMap to use for your specifications. Contact us for details.

Features

HyperMap is the all in one tool for light GIS requirements. It is a PC based with cloud assist Project Management tool that can be leveraged as little or as much as a particular situation requires. As a cloud controlled program, it is licensed on a yearly basis. It talks to handheld Garmin GPS units. It keeps both the program and the PatchMap data-set updated automatically. It can keep Garmin GPS units with PatchMap updated and organized. It communicates with GIS systems in their native language. It contains a vertical data-set (Digital Elevation Model). It creates drive-able routes that can be transferred to GPS units or printed. It can absorb aerial photography. It uses a map projection where North is always up and distances are the same N-S as they are E-W (a 6 mile x 6 mile township is actually square) It is easy to learn how to use. It can flip between the map and Google's satellite view. It has the ability for you to contribute to the completeness and precision of the base data-set (PatchMap) It will become your best ally in the competitive business world.

Updates

HyperMap is the only program in its' class that updates every time the program is opened, as do all the base data-sets (PatchMap). Even if you take the program off-line, most of the functions are intact. Any changed data added or removed from the program will automatically be updated each time you re-open HyperMap with an internet connection. This quick, automatic update system saves the headache of re-installations of software and updates of large data-sets. A few seconds a day and you will always have the most current version of HyperMap and PatchMap data. Both the program and the base map data are always current.

PriceTag

$995 buys a single year licence subscription: HyperMap is paid for on a 365 day subscription basis, with the number of remaining days always visible on the screen. Upon expiration of the year, access to the program will cease, the data can be resurrected for a reasonable time thereafter. In the event you reactivate your subscription a few days late, you will still have access to your projects. There will be extra warning signs upon HyperMap start-up to bring your attention to the termination of the subscription. Note: with the yearly subscription rate of $995, the additional functionality of complete operation off-line is an additional $245/year.

HyperMap for Oilfield

This is an extended section that offers a bit more insight into how HyperMap will likely be leveraged. This is not a single-use tool, with flexible capabilities HyperMap will meet the needs of a wide range of users with varied needs and job specific requirements.

In Field Use

Environmental Consultants - Surveyors / Engineers - Construction Consultants - all these users will be creating ideas on paper (well computers) and then verifying the design on the ground. This involves handheld GPS units and easy communication to PCs, either in the truck, field office or city office. This is THE tool for the job.

Office Use

Job Bidders - Dispatchers - Project Managers - these users need to identify job opportunities (and perhaps rule some out), have enough information to properly bid on the job, create an itinerary to supply labor force to the job, send the crews safely to and from the work-site and all the while being confident that you weren't just "winging it".

Easy Registration & Administration

All Registration and Administration controls are efficient and simple for users with all levels of technical capabilities. Granting and revoking access to employees is a few simple steps. Even the initial installation will require minimal support from your IT department (maybe none). No more time-consuming updates as the changes come in every time that the program is opened. This way HyperMap can be loaded onto multiple PCs and accessed from wherever you are. If you forgot to close the program before leaving the office, logging on from elsewhere automatically closes (notifying both computers of the action) the program in the office!

Cloud Features

HyperMap is a 'cloud' assisted PC based Project management tool. This means seamless sharing, creating another level of efficiency. Both the program itself and the PatchMap data-set embedded in HyperMap are kept current each time the program is opened with an available internet connection. Your saved Projects are cloud based so a project just changed in the field will already be available in Calgary! No e-mailing of files and worrying about vintage file confusion, it's just that easy!

Compatible Devices

HyperMap is a PC based program with an automated cloud storage and program & data updating system.. The cloud function requires an active internet connection. (must have Parallels or comparable to operate on Mac)

Future Capabilities

The digital product world changes quickly, so we are always forward thinking. We are currently developing new applications for Android, including a PatchMap version.

Combinations of SkyBase Tools

HyperMap : FieldPhoto : GPSbuudy : AddMyMap : UC360. These are other software packages that can be combined for a complete tool set. Based on your personal needs, SkyBase can offer many solutions.

MapMeeting

HyperMap acts as an interactive map that everyone (with permission in a particular project) can add info to at any time. If a user needs to up-load the info to their GPS for field verification, and subsequently down-load design tweaks from the field, it's built right in. MapMeeting is really just part of how HyperMap works; when a design tweak is implemented in the field, the office already has the changes, see Cloud Features above.
