InfiView™ - Interactive & Infinite Ajax Graphical Maps and Diagrams (from 2007)
InfiView is a software platform that enables you to develop interactive, dynamic graphical maps and diagrams. InfiView is using Ajax technology, and its advanced dynamic memory use enables use of ANY data size (from very small all the way to infinite). Using InfiView you can add a smart layer over existing data, static or dynamic (for example: maps, flowcharts, schematic diagrams, LDAP and SNMP) thus creating powerful interactive applications.
Pure Ajax InfiView is 100% built in Bindows: this means pure Ajax technology, no end-user downloads = TRUE zero-footprint (no Java, Flash, plug-ins or ActiveX are used) = zero client maintenance. It also means the most powerful Ajax development platform in the market, with the richest GUI and object-oriented development (and used by more than 500,000 business users).
Any Data Size (even infinite) From very small all the way to infinite, read about our unique memory management features.
Integrated Layers System With InfiView your applications can include multiple layers (for example, a layer of a map application, a layer of network topology, a layer of a live dashboard, etc.). You have full control of how transparent is each layer (and you can interactively change it).
All the layers can be tied together (so if you zoom or pan in one layer, it affects all layers).
Polygonal Edges The polygonal edges enables creation of edges with any polygonal shape, color, gradient, arrows and more.
Live Motion & Flow InfiView 1.5 now supports live graphical presentation of movements and flow (technical term: moving edges).
You can use this to develop applications presenting actual process flow and live location and movement.
Several examples, a live metro/subway application, showing location and movement of all the train cars (or buses) in real time, or money flow in a corporation, and how much is currently available in every site, or, live supply chain application, etc.
As a programmer you have full control over the weight of the edges (lines or any polygon), their color, the speed and direction of the animation, you can tie it to real-life events - and of course, the whole layout could be programatically generated and updated from database(s).
Grouping (groups created programmatically) Now you can programmatically create groups. InfiView will automatically switch the display from groups to items depending on the zoom level.
This capability, coupled with the support for infinite data size, enable you to present infinite size data, in a clear, legible way, at any zoom level.
Open & Extendable Platform InfiView is an open platform software - you define and select your tools, interface, style and logic. You do it by either modifying XML templates (provided) or by using the InfiView wizard.
InfiView integrated layering system enables placement of smart layer(s) over existing data, static or dynamic (for example: maps, flowcharts, schematic diagrams, LDAP and SNMP) thus creating powerful interactive applications.
InfiView is enterprise strength. It is fully object oriented and built for extension. It can be used to develop enterprise multi-layered, Ajax applications that are programmatically generated, graphical, interactive and dynamic, using ANY data size and any language. Several potential enterprise InfiView applications are:
Use With ANY Map InfiView's open architecture and it's integrated layers system enables live use of dissimilar maps (for example, geographical, weather, traffic, political, etc.), or web-maps from multiple sources (for example Google, Microsoft, Yahoo) for any InfiView applications.
