ALISO VIEJO, CA - Telogis Inc., provider of the unified platform for location intelligence, has launched Telogis Layers, allowing organizations to quickly and easily integrate any custom GIS data into their existing Telogis solutions.

Telogis Layers is designed for organizations such as utility and telecommunications companies, whose field workers often need to navigate to specific points within the organization's infrastructure, rather than a physical address. The technology, based on the company's Telogis GeoBase geospatial mapping platform, enables the search and display of custom data sets in a variety of deployment scenarios and application architectures.

Telogis Layers contains a range of features to make it straightforward to develop and use the maps, including customizable labels and symbols for each feature and layers that can be themed via any attribute. Data points in Telogis Layers are easily configured and tailored through the solution's wizard-driven import process and GUI-based style editor.

Data layers are stored within the Telogis Cloud, allowing them to be accessed via Telogis Fleet or Telogis Mobile. Telogis Layers enables end-users to route to relevant locations such as power poles, oil wells, gas and water lines, land use grids, and forestry and parcel data. Users can tab between different layers, providing them with clear and accurate details.

"The launch of Telogis Layers allows companies needing accurate and highly customizable GIS information to incorporate, categorize and label a variety of data sets in a very straightforward manner," said Newth Morris, president of Telogis' GeoBase Division. "The addition of Telogis Layers makes our SaaS-based mapping platform even more user-friendly, as it enables users to view any GIS data across multiple Telogis platforms."

"Telogis Layers makes it significantly quicker for us to rapidly deploy highly customized GIS systems for our clients," said Bill Ballard, president of Location Age, a geographic information and technology company headquartered in Silver Spring, Md. "Location Age manages complex systems integration projects for a wide range of organizations. The solution we chose needed to be able to handle the individual needs of our clients without the need for us to reinvent the wheel each time. Telogis Layers enables us to implement a high-quality solution while remaining competitive in the market."

Telogis Layers is available as an additional module for the Telogis Fleet platform. For pricing details, please contact Telogis' sales team at or 866-TELOGIS (866-835-6447)
