What are the rules for using Web GIS at nextgis.com?
Web GIS can be used in accordance with NextGIS Terms of Service and User agreement for NextGIS Services. We can also draft and sign a bilateral Contract for use of NextGIS services with your organization if necessary.
Can I change my plan?
Can I limit access to my web maps and resources?
Permission settings for web maps and other resources are available only for Premium users. If you are a Free or Mini user then all your web maps and data can be read by all users, including guests.
How can I pay for Premium or Mini subscription?
You can buy a subscription with your credit card or PayPal using a plan selector in your profile. All payments are processed through 2Checkout payment gate.
We also accept payments made via wire transfer in case the sum of the payment is $300 or more. If you’d like to use this option, switch to “Legal entity” tab in the plan selector and enter your company details to request an invoice.
You can also send us a request for a plan change or an invoice via website or email.
What happens if I stop paying for Premium?
We value privacy of your data, so we won’t force open or delete any of your private resources. Instead you’ll have 2 weeks to do it yourself after your subscription has expired. There are 2 scenarios what happens next:
- Blocking. If after 2 weeks your Web GIS still has private resources and/or contains more than 30 maps and data layers, your Web GIS will be blocked. You will need to renew your Premium subscription to recover your Web GIS and remove/open resources.
- Switch to Free or Mini. If after 2 weeks your Web GIS has no private resources and contains no more than 30 maps and data layers, your Web GIS will be automatically switched to Free, loosing Premium functionality.
- All your team members (excluding Plan owner) will be removed from the team. If you restore your Premium plan later, you’ll have to add them back again.
- Resources unavailable on Free and Mini, for example Collector projects will be blocked. You won’t be able to use them after the downgrade. You will be able to restore them after switching back to Premium.
What happens if I stop paying for Mini?
Depending on a number of maps and layers in your Web GIS, there are 2 possible scenarios:
- If after 1 week your Web GIS contains more than 30 maps and data layers, it will be blocked. You will need to renew your Mini subscription to recover your Web GIS and remove resources.
- If after 1 week your Web GIS contains no more than 30 maps and data layers, it will be automatically switched to Free, loosing Mini functionality.
What kind of support do I get?
Unfortunately we’re unable to offer any support on Free and Mini. Technical support (necessary clarifications and guaranteed replies) is Premium only.
Mini plan doesn’t apply any limits on a number of resources in your Web GIS. You can upload any amount of vector, raster, PostGIS and WMS layers, and create an unlimited number of web maps.
Tired of a standard basemap? Want to add satellite imagery, topography, basemaps in other styles? Mini allows you to choose from hundreds of different basemaps. You can have a look at what’s available at qms.nextgis.com. You can also add a basemap from your organization’s server. Have a look at the example.
If you’re a developer and would like to use your Web GIS as a backend for your own map or an app – Mini gets you covered. Mini allows you to turn on and set up CORS. This mode allows you to add completely new-looking map on your website and not worry about geodata upload and management (see how it works).
Lookup tables are dictionaries of «key-value» pairs stored in your Web GIS. Lookup tables can be used for example for dropdown lists of pre-entered values to be used in NextGIS Formbuilder and NextGIS Mobile.
Forms are special data collection surveys attached to your data layers and stored in your Web GIS for easy exchange with other applications. Forms are built with NextGIS Formbuilder and used in NextGIS Mobile.
Connect software trackers into your Web GIS using NextGIS Mobile, NextGIS Collector, NextGIS Tracker apps.
