CubeWerx Stratos™

Securely and effortlessly publish Web services, vector-based maps and data


Managing vector data has traditionally been a difficult and time-consuming task, and often requires the services of a highly-skilled GIS professional. CubeWerx Stratos™ allows you to quickly and easily upload and style vector data to create maps and Web services with no special training or knowledge. You can also connect to external Web map services Stratos Web Services Console and combine them with your own to create mashups and hybrid services. A powerful security module gives you full control over what you share and how it may be accessed.

A unique solution

CubeWerx Stratos™ is an intuitive Web-based application, backed by our industry-leading Web Services framework. It is designed to allow users to rapidly deploy data and services in support of their organization’s goals, without getting bogged down in tedious data-management tasks. All its functions are intuitive and designed to be simple to use.

Web Services are built-in

CubeWerx knows that the best data management in the world won’t help you if no one can reach the data. That’s why our focus has always been on interoperable Web services. When you publish data through the Stratos interface, everything is automatically and instantly available through a multitude of Open APIs. Sharing new data with your clients or developers is as simple as making a few mouse clicks.

The power of cascaded services

When you add external Web services, such as ESRI map servers, or third-party Web Map Services (WMS), Stratos automatically and transparently translates those services into an OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) compliant service. In addition, it augments the “upstream” services with any missing functionality, such as additional coordinate systems or requested image types. It smooths out the wrinkles and complexities inherent in service integration and presents a single, homogeneous point of entry. Your staff can focus on your organization’s priorities, not data management.

Fully cloud-ready

We can deploy this platform for your organization on your in-house servers, or if you’re ready to move to the cloud, Stratos has been thoroughly optimized and tested for use in virtual services such as the Amazon Cloud and others. We’ll take care of all the details. Take full control over your services, or employ us to handle the heavy lifting, using our Managed Services offerings. The choice is yours.
