Finally, a Complete Geospatial Server

Monday, November 12th, 2012

Effectively sharing geospatial data inside and outside an organization seems like an easy task given the vast number of offerings that exist today. However, truly leveraging the best of breed information technologies, integrating different genres of geospatial, while leveraging powerful desktop applications continues to be a challenge. Many of today’s offerings hone in one area of expertise, while neglecting other user requirements, thereby failing to provide a cohesive, holistic geospatial server solution. The end result may then alienate or frustrate some stakeholders, ultimately prolonging or even impeding decision-making capabilities.

With the upcoming launch of Intergraph Geospatial 2013, we will help organizations break down the walls that have prevented open and secure sharing of data and web services. Organizations will be able to optimize workflows and get information into the hands of those that need it.

Recently, we announced that Intergraph Geospatial 2013 provides a complete and powerful server portfolio for managing data, delivering web services, web mapping, on-demand geo-processing and workflow development and deployment.


Aerial View of Dutch History Brought to Life Through ERDAS APOLLO

Friday, June 29th, 2012


Most nations warehouse a treasure trove of historic aerial photography and maps that provide the foundation for tracking significant changes over time.   In addition to providing a historical perspective on land and development changes, this data is also very relevant for citizens who want to see how their places of residence have changed over time.

In the Netherlands, Dotka Data maintains a large and growing collection of historical aerial photography and maps, reflecting more than 200 years of history.  The collection includes topographic maps from as far back as 1798, and aerial photographs taken for topological purposes from 1932 to current day.


City of Edmonton: Tracking All Outdoor Park Assets with Combined Intergraph and Leica Geosystems Solutions

Thursday, June 21st, 2012


For many cities with sprawling outdoor parks, the ability to track the condition of all park-related assets can be a tremendous challenge.  However, the City of Edmonton, Canada, met this challenge head on with a recent pilot program that uses Intergraph and Leica Geosystems combined products.

With more than 460 parks, as well as the largest expanse of urban parkland in North America with its North Saskatchewan River Valley parks, the City of Edmonton’s Park Branch required a robust solution that was flexible, easy to use and could leverage its existing park asset data.

For the pilot program, the Park Branch is utilizing the Leica CS25 ultra rugged tablet and the GG02+ GNSS Smart Antenna in conjunction with Intergraph’s GeoMedia®, a powerful GIS management and analysis product.  As we saw at Hexagon 2012, Intergraph and Leica Geosystems contribute to Hexagon’s comprehensive portfolio, addressing all aspects of the geospatial life cycle – from capture to delivery.


GeoMedia Smart Client Obliterates Growing Disparity between Antiquated GIS Products and the Needs of Today’s Geospatial Contributors, Movers and Shakers

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Today, stakeholders across your organization know the value of geographic information, but often lack the expertise to run a traditional desktop GIS.  Online maps delivered by a web GIS are helpful, but these implementations often do not support the technical geospatial functions or flavored workflows required. Today, users need the power of GIS, not as a horizontal technology, but delivered in vertical market focused workflows.


Geospatial Solutions Address Urgent Need for Real-Time Intelligence for any Global Situation

Monday, January 9th, 2012

As we saw in 2011, the world is changing at a rapid pace.  From drastic population expansion to unprecedented levels of natural and man-made disasters, we are dealing with confounding global uncertainties that need to be addressed swiftly and precisely.

As we embrace this new global frontier, geospatial technologies and solutions are clearly the foundation for addressing these issues, managing change and ensuring that we have a safe future for our planet.  With the world continuing to be very tumultuous, it is obvious that decision-makers need to access new and highly relevant information through continual, accurate and timely updates to geospatial data.

One of the challenges of dealing with these urgent needs is that there are many silos that exist within large organizations, making the real-time sharing of geospatial information highly difficult.

The key is finding solutions providers who offer capabilities through the whole life-cycle of geospatial information management.  This includes content capture to on-demand geo-processing to delivering this actionable data to users whether they are on a desk top or mobile device.

By creating synergies and streamlining workflows, we can actually make geospatial solutions work in a way that will help us better respond to urgent needs.  The key is to combine all of the ingredients, which includes having GPS, airborne and laser-scanning sensors provide the data, then feeding it through photogrammetric, GIS and remote-sensing mapping systems.  This lifecycle ultimately provides decision-makers, first-responders, field experts and others to be able to make the right decisions at the right time.

Dealing with global uncertainties has been one of the biggest challenges throughout the ages.  Thankfully by providing access to the right geospatial information in real-time, we will be able to better respond to natural disasters and manage the ever-changing world we inhabit.
