JMap, K2’s map integration
platform, is currently
deployed and used by over 475 organizations.
Founded in 1995,
its 25th anniversary this year!
The community also includes
over 300 administrators who manage JMap on a daily basis
in their respective organizations.
The JMap community boasts
over 200,000 users from all
over the Americas, as well as in Europe and in Africa.
On October 28th, the ninth edition of the JMap user conference took place. This virtual event brought together more than 325 participants and 25 experts from different backgrounds to discuss the complex issues related to the city of tomorrow. This event also highlighted the latest developments of JMap as well as recent projects on which K2 and its partners are currently working.
In order to complete this conference, the K2 Geospatial team has set up technical workshops deployed over several weeks allowing you to deepen your knowledge of JMap. Thus, you will have the opportunity to exchange with the K2 team, who will be present to answer your questions and allow you to learn more about the multiple applications of the platform. You can find the details of these workshops in the program section below.

This training aims to provide an introduction to the use of JMap Admin for the preparation and publication of cartographic applications and data. This workshop covers the integration of spatial data sources, the creation of a project in JMap, the configuration of layers, etc.
Docker has revolutionized the way IT systems are deployed, not only in the cloud, but also in organizations’ private infrastructures. With the JMap 7 Jakarta version, it is now possible to deploy JMap in Docker containers.
This 2-hour workshop covers how to install and manage a JMap installation in Docker.
Main advantages of Docker :
● Isolation from the environment
● Quick to deploy (ready to operate)
● Better use of equipment
Vector tiles are a data format optimized for web mapping. They offer the speed of traditional raster tiles and the interactivity of vector data. Mapbox has proposed a standard for vector tiles and it is increasingly supported by various GIS systems. JMap 7 Jakarta allows the production of vector tiles for your JMap projects.
This 2-hour workshop covers how to produce, cache and manage vector tiles with JMap and how to access them from JMap NG.
JMap Survey is an application for smart phones and tablets. It allows you to consult your JMap projects while in the field and to perform data collection. Whether for inventories or inspections, JMap Survey uses the integrated or external GPS receiver, presents forms for attribute entry, allows you to take pictures, and so on. All this works with or without network connection.
This 2-hour workshop covers how to carry out the different steps of preparation for using Survey (project, spatial table, form).
