Timmons Group Develops Enterprise Silverlight Based GIS Application for SNL Financial LC

Richmond, VA—February 22, 2010 - Timmons Group, a leading provider of geospatial services, recently completed work with SNL Financial LC to develop a mapping component to their SNL online information service.  Timmons Group’s enterprise consulting included a design for SNL Financial using ESRI’s ArcGIS Server hosted Web Map Services (WMS) and OpenGIS Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) profile to achieve ambitious cartography requirements needed by SNL subscribers. 

The mapping application for SNL Financial was built using ESRI’s ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight.  Silverlight is one of the industry’s most comprehensive and powerful solutions for the creation and delivery of applications and media experiences through a Web browser.  Silverlight includes compatibility with a Microsoft.NET development environment which provides significant integration value for companies with .NET developers.  The mapping application, developed by Timmons Group, will provide clients of SNL Financial with a rich, interactive mapping experience integrated with the dynamic spatial analysis power of ArcGIS Server.   The functionality being built into the mapping application and provided to SNL Financial’s clients include multi-variate thematic mapping, service area creation, dynamic map styling, saving of map templates, rich print and export output options, and interactive map markup.

“The combination of a rich user experience provided by Silverlight and the unique server-side design we’ve done utilizing ArcGIS Server based WMS services and Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) standards gives SNL Financial a powerful enterprise level platform for their clients,” says Chris Gerecke, Director of Enterprise Solutions for Timmons Group.
