Hexagon 2012: Intergraph News from the Floor
June 12th, 2012 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
Without a doubt, the Hexagon conference is the biggest annual event for Intergraph and all of the other companies that fall under the Hexagon umbrella. It is a truly exciting time for us to preview our latest technology and innovations, as well as share our vision for how our combined offerings help manage any global situation that requires real-time intelligence for fast and effective decision-making.
Each year, the international conference also offers the chance for our users to attend presentations by industry experts, participate in targeted tracks, break-out sessions, as well as hear inspiring keynotes from a wide range of industry thought leaders.
For Intergraph, this is the ideal platform for us to make a series of new announcements. And, while all the news generated from the conference can often get lost in the shuffle – especially for busy attendees – I wanted to take moment to highlight our news from the show last week:
Intergraph’s GeoMedia Smart Client took a starring role at Hexagon 2012, with a number of new hands-on training classes being introduced, as well as break-out sessions and a variety of new vertical market workflow demonstrations.
At the Hexagon 2012 conference, we demonstrated a new technology that enables you to fully leverage the wealth of information in point cloud data. The centerpiece of the new functionality is the augmented viewing capability embedded in ERDAS IMAGINE®, which allows users to simultaneously view LiDAR spatially linked in 2D, 3D and as a user-specified profile that can reveal cross sections of the point cloud.
We also announced that the City of Edmonton, Canada, has implemented a pilot program that will use Intergraph and Leica Geosystems combined products for enhanced tracking of assets within its expansive network of public parks.
Intergraph also signed an OEM agreement with MapText, Inc., the leading label-placement solutions provider for local, state and national government mapping agencies worldwide.
We also announced the appointment of T-Kartor as a channel partner in Sweden. As a long-term distributor of ERDAS products, T-Kartor’s role is being expanded in the region to provide sales and customer support for the full Intergraph Geospatial portfolio.
Once again, the Hexagon conference proved to be a triumph for Intergraph and all of the other Hexagon companies. We look forward to next year’s show and highlighting our capabilities and successes again. Thank you to all who participated!
