Visualization of the process under control is performed in MAPCS using a powerful HMI/SCADA application named MAPVIEW. This application which has been developed from the ground-up using Microsoft .NET technology runs on Windows XP and 7 operating systems provides advanced graphics and animation capabilities for creating optimum interactive experience for the operators.

MAPVIEW+ HMI designer

As part of the object oriented software architecture for design and configuration of the MAPCS, the MAPVIEW+ complements and extends the features of MAPIDE to the area of human process interaction and has seamless preconfigured integration to the MAPIDE, vastly simplifying the job of the engineers who configure and program the entire system. Advanced data, alarm and history unifying architecture (in the sense of OPC) provides users of the product with an unparalleled capability to mix and match different pieces of information from a variety of sources such as the MAPCS itself, third party H/W through OPC servers, Database applications and enterprise systems to build a rich uniform control information layer inside the overall MAPCS architecture

MAPVIEW runtime application

Based on the project configuration made in the MAPVIEW+ environment, the operators can navigate through the graphic pages, bring-up faceplates, manage process alarms, review trends, and predefined reports, and issue commands to the control system in MAPVIEW runtime application.

MAPDS (MAPCS Data Server)

At the heart of the MAPCS supervisory platform is a component designed based on the principles of SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) called the MAPDS (MAPCS Data Server). This server gathers plant information in the form of data, alerts, historical data, database records, xml files etc, from various sources, combines them into a well defined set of unified object-based structures, makes it possible to process information on the fly through powerful .NET scripting and serves this information to its diverse set of clients

MAPCS Archive Server

MAPAS package backs up data and event log files of the MAPDS and removes the unwanted log files from the server. To configure how and when MAPAS performs these tasks you need to set its properties from the Deployment explorer and it can be designed in Mapview+.


The MAPVIEW plug-in for excel, converts this powerful application into an efficient report generator tool. Through this plug-in, various kinds of information like alarms and events, historical and online data can be combined together to generate expressive reports in different formats (e.g. html, pdf) and published through different means (e.g. print,email,portal).


MAPCS Engineering Management Server (MAPEMS) is a server which provides services for maintaining the design source of the project and delivers a multi-engineering environment.
