The result of a collaboration between Esri and Intergraph Security Government and Infrastructure (SG&I) announced in March is the release of I/Map Editor for ArcGIS, a new product that works directly with Esri’s ArcGIS Platform to migrate geospatial data into Intergraph’s Computer-Aided Dispatch Software (I/CAD), allowing tighter integration between those two products. The new product was unveiled at this week’s HXGN LIVE 2015 in Las Vegas. Vice president of Public Safety Products, Intergraph SG&I Kalyn Sims, talks to GISCafe Voice about the announcement.

In an interview with vice president of Public Safety Products, Intergraph SG&I Kalyn Sims, and Russ Johnson, director of Public Safety for Esri, discussed the latest collaboration between the two companies, to enhance geospatial capabilities for public safety and security agencies. Through the collaboration, the companies will work to more tightly align Intergraph’s Computer-Aided Dispatch system, I/CAD, and Esri’s ArcGIS Platform.
Michel Gilles, vice president for Utilities and Communications for Intergraph, talked with GISCafe Voice this week about the recent strategic alliance between Intergraph and ETAP, to collaborate on their products’ integration and address the market for utilities and telecommunications. This fast-growing market is now beginning to support new sources of generation and production of energy. The announcement was made at DistribuTECH.
Cities worldwide are charged with the same challenge: that of creating or retrofitting sustainable, intelligent infrastructure. Cities need the best in design, geospatial, visualization and analytical tools to realize a viable and intelligent city design. 3D City design is architectural design times thousands, plus it must have the ability to be interwoven with other surrounding infrastructure and foster an urban conversation.
Satellite imagery has undergone a paradigm shift in the past couple of years.
During the week of August 18th-22nd, GISCafe Voice will run a special feature blog on the topic, “Online GIS Education Programs.”
In a recent Research and Markets Report, “GIS Market in US 2012-2016” the analysts discovered that many GIS vendors in the U.S. are adding integrated GIS solutions to their portfolios to avoid interoperability problems. These solutions are often seen as fully-integrated application in enterprise applications. End-users can integrate GIS solutions with design, analysis, and simulation software. It has become customary for manufacturing companies to integrate GIS solutions into analytical and simulation applications as part of the product life cycle, thereby extending the reach of GIS. Enterprise applications provide companies with asset management, planning, analysis, remote access, distribution of information, and controlling existing IT systems. Those vendors who have a history in providing design, analysis and simulation software from other industry perspectives such as asset management, planning, etc. can take advantage of this trend by integrating GIS directly into their existing product portfolios. (I have just returned from the Bentley Year in Infrastructure Conference in London where integrated GIS solutions was demonstrated).
“The analysts forecast the GIS market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 10.96 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand from the Government sector. The GIS market in the US has also been witnessing the development of integrated systems. However, the increasing government regulations and guidelines could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
