Today at Intersolar, MAPSearch announced a new online mapping platform designed specifically for the solar industry.
The company’s flagship platform, ENvision, enables anyone to quickly locate, display, and analyze energy infrastructure using the same quality data licensed to its GIS customers. ENvision is flexible and customizable, and its assets can be searched, sorted, and displayed according to numerous details, including owner, operator, voltage, and more.
MAPSearch developed the ENvision solar platform in response to overwhelming demand from the renewable energy sector for an easy-to-use, updated, and robust siting tool and quality data.
“As we have seen a shift in the industry towards renewables, we have updated our offerings to include layers and data that would be beneficial to the solar industry,” says Shawn McCarthy, Vice President and General Manager of MAPSearch.
“This new platform brings together electric power infrastructure, wetlands data, parcel data, flood zones, and a solar resources basemap for a comprehensive view of the US marketplace. We hope these improvements will entice more companies to take a look at our innovative platform.”
