New Advances in Geospatial Transportation Solutions
April 8th, 2013 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
Last month, Intergraph held its annual Transportation Summit, which was a key stop on our 2013 Geospatial World Tour. The event highlighted how Intergraph is advancing new geospatial solutions for this unique sector by enabling transportation agencies to better track and monitor the location, condition, and other important information about roadway assets.
At the event, we shared insights into how eight transportation agencies have recently signed on as customers to use the new GeoMedia Smart Client solution, which enables users to seamlessly integrate geographic changes into configurable workflows — along with providing field/mobile users with an intuitive GIS environment with both on- and off-line editing capabilities.
Intergraph also announced the growing number of DOT’s using its GeoMedia Transportation Manager software for managing their roadway networks. More DOT’s and transportation agencies use Intergraph’s GeoMedia Transportation Manager to manage their road networks than any other software in the world. Along with many U.S. DOT’s, the Ministry of Transportation in Ontario, who has the busiest highway in North America, uses GeoMedia Transportation Manager.
In addition, Matt Ball was on hand covering the event for Informed Infrastructure, where he provided these key insights:
The significant advancements in the geospatial portfolio, as well as the streamlined integration between elements in the suite, were common points of discussion throughout the event.
Among the new technologies Intergraph brings to transportation are:
The event also featured how the MAP-21 legislation, which contains $105 billion in funding for 2013 and 2014, is driving growth in this sector and how Intergraph’s solutions support process improvements and new federal reporting requirements . The legislation is putting a special emphasis on using geospatial solutions for infrastructure management, long-range management and performance monitoring.
