Location intelligence can help healthcare industries to provide regulatory compliance, resource and facility planning, and out-patient tracking.Location analytics applications can integrate data from multiple sources with GIS like SAP, MS Office, SAS, MicroStrategy etc. In this application, we have integrated SAP Business Objects with ArcGIS application through Web services using QaaWS. It provides the ability to view and process aggregated data as well as summarized and detailed level data. This application provides flexibility to use advanced GIS functionalities like GP tools on the map interface. We have used a middleware ‘configurator’ will be used to configure the web service data fields to the various features. The map can further be published to different formats such as pdf, jpg, png etc. User can select geographical region (State) to view Business Objects data in chart. Location analytics provides state to city level drill-down and provides way to visualize city level data in the form of chart. Data for different states and city are shown on the column chart as we go on selecting them on map and one can compare the production volume of various states by looking at the information in the chart. This chart also shows the population data for various states and hence analysis can be drawn based on this.
