Intermap’s Orion Platform announced

June 20th, 2013 by Susan Smith

Intermap announced the launch of their Orion Platform Software-Driven Spatial Data Platform, at  the 12th Southeast Asian Survey Congress in Manila. The Orion Platform is designed to allow governmental entities to manage a country’s entire spatial data infrastructure program from one unified control point.

During 2013, Intermap has announced initial phase contracts involving Orion Platform installations in two countries, totaling approximately $16 million. Orion Platform has been in development for two years.

The cost and complexity of geospatial information and the infrastructure necessary to run it have been prohibitive for many countries. Orion Platform seeks to solve this problem to allowing customers to choose the products and services that they need based upon scope, budget and timeline. According to the press release, Intermap manages and delivers a multitude of fused geospatial datasets and their associated analytics in a simplified standard format.

Two years in the making, Intermap’s Orion Platform is unique in several ways:

  • Immediate delivery of 3D business Intelligence (3DBI) applications using NEXTMap® World 30 data anywhere in the world
  • Converts and presents all types of geospatial data in a common format for a consistent and easy management
  • Provides a common programming interface so that software applications have a standard approach to access and manipulate the geospatial data to quickly derive answers

Intermap’s Orion Platform has five integrated layers:

  1. Geospatial Services: Auditing and custom data collection
  2. Foundation Data: Seamless, off-the-shelf, high-resolution elevation data
  3. Data Fusion: Robust integration of multiple datasets into one homogeneous data specification
  4. 3DBI: Web-based applications for both GIS and non-GIS professionals
  5. Platform Delivery Services: Array of SaaS-based and LAN-based delivery methods

Intermap offers various custom geospatial services, auditing, data fusion, web-based applications, and cloud- based or LAN-based hosting. The Orion Platform integrates the needs of the customers with the various services at affordable prices.
