Our Three Main Services Are:


http://maps.firstbasesolutions.com/MapWarehouse (Saving)
It's an online store. Locate your area of interest on a map, then search for the data available covering that area. Add items to your cart, enter a credit card, then download the files. Save the data locally to use in your CAD or GIS based project.

http://vumap.firstbasesolutions.com/
VuMAP (Surfing)
It's a online mapping application. Your annual subscription allows unlimited access through a web browser to view the same data as found on MapWarehouse and more, plus easy built-in tools to analyze, plan, and communicate spatial information.



MapCast (Streaming)
It's a web mapping service. Your bandwidth based subscription serves an aerial image base layer and contour elevations directly into your WMS compliant CAD or GIS software.
