With an ongoing focus on a fully united, modern and dynamic product portfolio, this powerful release synchronizes the technologies across all Intergraph product lines – broadening the reach and availability for fully integrated solutions for all users of geospatial information.
"As today's organizations require the most dynamic geospatial solutions for driving enhanced decision-making, we are excited to share this release, introducing new mobility, analytics and big data management tools," said Mladen Stojic, president, Hexagon Geospatial. "We are also continuing to develop creative and intuitive interfaces, smarter workflows and automated technologies that support the entire geospatial information lifecycle, transforming multi-source content into dynamic and actionable information."
The portfolio includes GeoMedia®, ERDAS IMAGINE®, ImageStation®, ERDAS APOLLO, GeoMedia Smart Client, GeoMedia WebMap, Geospatial Portal, Geospatial SDI, Intergraph Mobile MapWorks and Intergraph Mobile Alert. The following are the key enhancements built within Intergraph Geospatial 2014:
- Create Customized Analytics: Users can leverage highly intuitive spatial modeling for creating powerful data analysis once, and repeat it indefinitely. In addition, the new spatial modeler allows users to work with point clouds and other specialized operators, as well as model and define real world objects that depict complex relationships and behavior. In addition, users can now easily exchange Esri® file geosdatabase data across users' geospatial enterprises.
- Powerful Real-Time Reporting in Mobile Environment: Users can see, edit, validate and update their GIS from their mobile device in the field, in real-time with Intergraph Mobile MapWorks. In addition, Intergraph Mobile Alert provides crowd-sourced incident information to organizations such as governments and utilities. The new ERDAS ECW/JP2 SDK on Android, iOS and WinCE devices allows third-party developers to use Intergraph's data compression technology to solve mobile problems, which include removing storage constraints and delivering high performance image data.
- Big Data Management in the Cloud: ERDAS APOLLO has been expanded as the core enterprise data catalog with the management of basic vector data to the Advantage and Professional tiers of this offering. In addition, GeoMedia Smart Client users can now easily convert datasets from the server side vector cache to raster output as .png or .jpg tiles. ERDAS IMAGINE also quickly solves many big data problems through its 64 bit hardware support.
"Many organizations must quickly understand and make sense of massive volumes of geospatial data. In addition, there is a growing need to integrate mobile and analytics into the cloud. Thoroughly understanding these requirements, we continually evolve our products to best meet these needs – further unleashing the power of geospatial data management for organizational effectiveness," added Stojic.
