During major mining efforts, knowing how much earth has been removed from a quarry or mine can significantly enhance overall project management. Organizations need to be able to provide accurate measurements and reporting to ensure that the project is aligning with overall goals, as well as complies with current mining regulations.
In addition, organizations that store landscape or construction materials, such as gravel, sand or dirt, need to measure and analyze how much their surplus is being used at all times.
On April 30th, Intergraph is hosting a webinar called “Easy Volumetric Measurements Using Geospatial Technology,” which will guide users through a workflow for determining overall earth removal.
During this webinar, we will guide you through a workflow that enables you to determine how much earth has been removed from a quarry or mine. Likewise, this workflow could also be used by anyone who stores landscaping or constructions materials (such as gravel, sand, or dirt).

For any police department, the ability to access, share and act upon the right data is critical for saving lives. Much of this data is geospatially enabled to allow police forces to see precisely where activity is occurring and what type of response is taking place.
The New Zealand Police are deploying smartphones and tablets featuring Intergraph’s new Mobile Responder app to more than 6,000 frontline officers.
Linked to Intergraph’s industry-leading computer-aided dispatch software (I/CAD), the Mobile Responder app will help New Zealand field officers use smartphones to access critical information required for more informed decision-making.
In announcing this effort, the Prime Minister of New Zealand said that the mobile technologies would help police “access vital information that will help them prevent crime, catch criminals and protect New Zealanders.”
And this effort will have other significant benefits. For example, the New Zealand Police estimate that officers will now spend more time in the field, reducing significant amounts of paperwork and increasing productivity by 30 minutes per shift. This amounts to 520,000 hours each year or $304.8 million (NZD ) in productivity savings over 12 years.

Let’s face it: photogrammetric systems are not known for being user-friendly. As a result, trained professionals are often required to manage the full spectrum of a photogrammetry system’s capabilities. Fostering a silo within organizations, this can limit the power of this type of data, and its ability to be leveraged easily in other geospatial genres. Recognizing the power of photogrammetry, more organizations are now analyzing airborne, satellite imagery as well as UAV and oblique imagery for smarter decision-making.
Fortunately, as part of the new Intergraph Geospatial Portfolio 2013, we have launched LPS 2013, a powerful and modern photogrammetry system. With its tight integration with ERDAS IMAGINE® 2013, LPS 2013 enables users to access photogrammetry and remote sensing tools easily. LPS 2013 is well suited for projects involving varied types of data and further processing and analysis of airborne and satellite imagery.

With a new product release, you want the world to understand and experience its significance and value. With Intergraph Geospatial 2013, we launched more than one or two products. We launched a complete portfolio of products, touching every area of the geospatial workflow. We believe that this technology is the force behind smarter decisions, with relevance to organizations around the world.
Many organizations solely rely on marketing and communications efforts to update the marketplace on new product developments. However, Intergraph is taking it one step further by actually going on the road in support of the Intergraph Geospatial 2013 launch. This month, we are launching our world tour – a global roadshow that brings Intergraph Geospatial 2013 to key cities.
The first event took place on January 11, 2013, in Calcutta, India. Next week, we have a large event planned in conjunction with India Geospatial Forum. With additional events planned throughout India, and the world tour continuing across North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia Pacific, the tour will provide a means to experience and share the excitement and significance of this release with our customers and partners directly.

Today’s organizations are more progressive in the way they tap into geospatial solutions for driving smarter decisions. And, as we have highlighted before, the key to being a forward-thinking organization is by being able to empower a large base of users that work between rigid desktop GIS and light-weight browser-based GIS systems.
Intergraph Geospatial 2013 includes a new version of GeoMedia Smart Client. Earlier this year, Joe Francica from Directions Magazine made the following statement about this significant offering:
“I found it to be more intuitive than most “lightweight” client interfaces that try to sell themselves as “robust” GIS solutions. … Organizations wishing to deploy GIS to a broader set of users should investigate Smart Client.”
GeoMedia Smart Client engages all users across an organization, enabling them to seamlessly integrate geographic changes into configurable workflows.
The new release provides noteworthy improvements, outlined in an on-demand webinar. These enhancements include the ability for users to make updates with waning or non-existent Internet connectivity, which is a challenge for organizations with a distributed workforce out in the field. Thankfully, these employees remain productive as changes are uploaded upon connectivity again through a process that is seamless to the user experience.
In addition, the new release will allow for project-based conflict handling that can be added through the workflow definitions. Other new features include ERDAS APOLLO Essentials integration, workflow manager API enhancements and support for geographic coordinates and custom coordinate systems.
The new offering will be available in three product tiers, depending on each organization’s need:
- GeoMedia Smart Client Essentials
- GeoMedia Smart Client Advantage
- GeoMedia Smart Client Professional
Overall, GeoMedia Smart Client will further allow end-users to leverage advanced geospatial functionality via simple-to-use map-based tools, streamlining their processes and honing their expertise. As a result, vibrant geospatial business workflows provide a level of sophistication not traditionally supported by legacy out-of-the-box horizontal software products.
Stay tuned for ongoing updates with regards to our new product launch. In the meantime, please feel free check out our new microsite dedicated to this major Intergraph initiative here and let us know what you think.

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.
