We live in a world that requires organizations to have a real sense of the world around them – from air, space and on the ground. As such, geospatial data has become the backbone for driving fundamental decisions that ensure organizational success, as well as for supporting government program missions.
Later this year, we are launching Intergraph Geospatial 2013, offering the full spectrum of geospatial technology in a united release. With a fresh approach, this technology enables organizations to discover and exploit the wealth of information contained in data from any source, share it rapidly and deliver it on demand to drive smarter decisions.
Recently, we hosted a webinar that showcased one of the products included in this release, highlighting how ERDAS IMAGINE 2013 expands on its proven technology. With a host of usability enhancements and new features, users can do more with multiple types of data.

Utility providers are challenged with the complex process of managing all of their field assets, which are subject to weather-related damages and vegetation growth. In addition, electrical distribution networks are often very vast and serve large populations that expect reliable services at all times.
Geospatial solutions have become the backbone for enabling and automating plots and network diagrams for fast and effective decision making. Today, many GIS technologies now interface with other business and operational management systems, which extend and integrate workflows with other business critical systems.

Whether a large business, an international organization or a governmental body, most organizations need clear and actionable information for effective decision making. Powerful GIS management packages are the foundation for this and allow organizations to achieve the maximum value of their geospatial resources.
The most effective solutions offer simultaneous access to geospatial data in almost any form, uniting them in a single map view for efficient processing, capture and maintenance, analysis, presentation, and sharing.
New solutions make this possible, which offer modern functionality for an improved user experience, enhanced performance and scalability for enterprise databases, and timesaving tools such as dynamic and static text placement and automated labeling.

More than ever before, we can sense the real world around us – from space, the air, and the ground. Organizations need the right solutions for managing this data influx to both make sense of the changing world and smarter decisions in the face of any challenge.
Often, geospatial professionals are required to work with disparate products that may not work well together. The best way to manage this change is to leverage a portfolio of systems and solutions that integrate geospatial image processing and analysis, GIS, remote sensing, and photogrammetry.
Intergraph recently hosted a webinar that illustrated how our current solutions meet this need, as well as introduced new innovations that will be included in our upcoming release.

It is estimated that 29.6 percent of the Earth’s surface is comprised of forests. In addition, there are approximately one trillion canopy trees on the globe and nearly two-thirds of land-dwelling creatures inhabit our forests. Some researchers believe that the way we treat our forests will impact the future of our earth.
Without a doubt, preserving our forests is of paramount importance to the future of our ecosystem. Geospatial solutions play a critical role in gaining the insights we need to preserve our natural environment for future generations.

As we all know, the right geospatial solutions can be used for virtually any industry sector that needs spatial data for enhanced decision making. However, many of us in the geospatial industry often focus on only a few core markets.
Recently, Intergraph hosted a webinar about the use of geospatial technologies for better crop management. The response was overwhelming. Clearly, there is a significant demand for spatial data in the agriculture sector.
Using remotely-sensed data in agriculture analysis enables organizations to make critical decisions to correct issues with the seasonal crop. Crop analysis such as characteristic definition, health and stress detection, change detection and understanding the effects of environmental factors can all be used to make efficient and valuable decisions in a timely manner.

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.

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.

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:
GeoMedia Smart Client Star of Show!
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.

In the geospatial sector, small and medium sized enterprises (SME) are the backbone of innovation, creating specialized offerings that have made the industry what it is today. Whether providing a solution that integrates into a larger organization’s offering, or creating new markets with completely unique products, it is safe to say that SMEs are one of the key reasons we have had such tremendous growth over the past decade.
I was recently asked to offer comment for an article on the value of SMEs in Geospatial World Magazine, and wanted to use this post as a platform to further elaborate on this topic.
