Mobile Web GIS is one of the best cross-platform solutions. Ever more of our mobile development, as a company, is web focused for this reason.

Dr. Matthias Alisch, senior marketing manager, EMEA Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I) spoke about the company’s new Green GIS Initiative in Europe which offers a more energy-efficient and climate-friendly IT process. The new Initiative was announced at INTERGEO last week in Stuttgart, Germany.
