WebGeoTouch is a web-based open-access version of our legacy GeoTouch geographical information system (GIS) system. We are also developing WebGeoPad, a tablet version of the product. The new internet-based free App uses newer technology, is multi-platform and can be accessed from anywhere through the Internet. WEB GeoTouch brings a high quality GIS application to scientists, students and the general public working outside of the EOS intranet. We are in the process of refining the product, and completing the user testing and final code. We are also creating an offline tablet version that can be used in the field to collect geo-referenced data.

The legacy version of GeoTouch has been used extensively to showcase EOS science research and applications to visitors, scientific colleagues and students.
Singapore’s Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, learned about EOS’ projects through GeoTouch.
During FY2015 we successfully transformed the legacy closed-access intranet-based GeoTouch software into an open access Web-based App. The new software, Web GeoTouch, is a multi-platform device-independent solution for visualizing GIS content. We also redesigned the tools and toolbox to make it easier to use by a non-expert user. The Beta Release v.1.0 has been available to the public since December of 2014 at webgeotouch.com. The new Web GeoTouch can be accessed from anywhere through public Internet using any of the latest Web browsers. The Web GeoTouch app is designed to work on any device including desktop or laptop Windows or Apple OS computers, iPads and Android tablets, and iPhones and Android phones.
