Meeting “Big Data” Needs with Advanced Geospatial Data Management, Analysis and Delivery
January 22nd, 2013 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
The government IT and corporate enterprise world is keen to grasp the opportunities and challenges with “big data.” In the geospatial sector, this is a challenge that we have managed for years.
Whether it is for forestry management or defense and intelligence, geospatial data is almost always classified as “big.” This type of data captures areas of interest in multiple views, providing insight on change and its ramifications. Utilized as a means for detailed analysis, this data is the foundation for high-level decision making within any type of organization.
As a comprehensive data management, analysis and delivery system, ERDAS APOLLO enables any organization to easily catalog, search, discover, process, and securely disseminate massive volumes of both file-based and web-enabled data. ERDAS APOLLO 2013 is a vital component of Intergraph Geospatial 2013, the industry’s only comprehensive portfolio, integrating photogrammetry, remote sensing, and GIS into a streamlined system.
“Big data” often sits in silos and is not used in a meaningful way. ERDAS APOLLO 2013 provides a means for managing large volumes of data in ways that make it truly timely, relevant and actionable.
The new release offers new efficiencies in robust data management and broad data dissemination capabilities. For customers with constantly updating data stores, ERDAS APOLLO now provides the ability to set up a drop box, enabling an organization to immediately catalog and publish incoming data. With virtual mosaicking, an organization can group datasets together, limit by scale, and portray potentially thousands of datasets as a single virtual mosaic layer.
ERDAS APOLLO 2013 also debuts a ready-to-run, integrated web client. The Geospatial Portal provides ERDAS APOLLO users with the same powerful functionality and connectivity to the server that they had before, plus many more useful and standards-compliant features.
As “big data” will continue to be a hot trend in 2013 and beyond, it is clear that geospatial data will continue to be a relevant topic. Solutions to manage this data effectively enable organizations to easily access the right information for enhanced effectiveness.
