InstantAtlas Server is a set of 'off-the-shelf' modules for building community and local information systems.
The Administration Console is a secure website that gives administrators distributed across different organisations and/or geographic locations access to the functions required to manage an InstantAtlas Server system. These functions cover all key areas such as data loading and organisation, report building and system auditing. The console has been designed to be simple-to-use and to scale for large data volumes.
Data Views Module
Data Views are logical groups of indicators defined by administrators that are delivered as a collection to address the needs and tasks of specific users. They are organised into Themes and can be viewed as InstantAtlas dynamic reports or tables. The Data Views module adds a wizard to the Administration Console for designing and building Data Views and for managing the InstantAtlas dynamic reports that are used to view them.

Advanced Data Views
The Advanced Data Views module offers greater flexibility for users wishing to create more personalised Data Views.
This module provides a powerful set of tools to design and deliver highly effective reports containing a mix of appropriate information relating to a specific area or number of areas. You can also use it to profile point based features such as 'hospitals'.
The Advanced Profiles Module offers greater flexibility for users wishing to create more personalised Profiles.
The Advanced Data Views user interface includes:
The Explorer Module allows users to explore the contents of the system. The Explorer module also adds functionality to the Administration Console to allow administrators to upload external resources (e.g. PDFs, Excel workbooks, images, web links) that can then be explored alongside IA Server data outputs.
The User Management module is for organisations that wish to implement a login for their users (either mandatory or optional). This is usually to restrict access to sensitive data or to improve the personalisation of content to specific user groups.
The Advanced Profiles Module user interface includes:
The Server Publisher Module enhances the administration of multiple dynamic reports, improves background mapping and enables user-defined choice of geography in dynamic reports.
NeSS Data Transfer Tool (UK only)
The NeSS Data Transfer Tool is a wizard based utility that allows the user to download and import indicator data from the Neighbourhood Statistics (NeSS) Data Exchange Service published by the Office of National Statistics (ONS). This tool can be used to import data straight away or can be scheduled to run at particular times using the IAS Data Synchronisation Service.
IAS Data Transfer Tool
The IAS Data Transfer Tool is a wizard based utility that allows the user to copy Indicator data, along with related Metadata and geo-data from one installation of InstantAtlas Server to another. As with the NeSS Data Transfer Tool data can be transferred straight away or scheduled to run at particular times using the IAS Data Synchronisation Service, which comes bundled with this tool.
