CityGuide DMS - Documentation - Introduction

The following paragraphs will give you an introduction into the setup, the performance characteristics and possible application areas of the CityGuide DMS software.

Introduction - What is CityGuide DMS ?

CityGuide DMS is an interactive Geographical-Information-System (GIS) in form of a Java-applet. Applets are small programs which can be securely executed within a browser application such as the Internet Explorer.

The Java-technology was introduced by Sun Microsystems (now Oracle) and is being used on the Internet, Intranet, on CDROM/DVD, in mobile phones, cars, the Mars-Rover and many other areas of modern life.

More informations about Java can be obtained online from:

The use of the Java-technology in most CityGuide products ensures a secure online- and offline application of the sofware, independent of the operating system or the internal computer technology.  

CityGuide DMS is being successfully used across Europe in many cities, communities and companies, online as well as offline. Examples include city fire brigades, offices of public relations and city survey departments.
