Harris Corporation Collaborates with Boundless for Open-Source Geospatial Solutions

Highlights:

  • Expands Harris’ legacy of providing high-quality, responsive geospatial solutions
  • Collaboration delivers content and products critical to meeting time-sensitive mapping and analysis requirements
  • Shared technology improves production speed and accuracy of geospatial content

MELBOURNE, Florida, January 7, 2016 — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has expanded a collaboration with Boundless to further extend its capabilities in open-source geospatial technology.  This partnership makes it easier and more cost-effective for customers to access, manage and share the huge amount of location-based data available from devices, sensors and satellites.

Most recently, Harris has developed a geospatial data warehouse called One Object One Time (1O1T), which eliminates redundant data and stores the most current representation of geospatial objects such as a lighthouse or communications tower.  This capability ensures data currency and significantly reduces the time required for processing and delivering content and products compared with traditional methods  Harris is using 1O1T to provide content management services and create high-quality data and products for use by a wide variety of government and commercial customers.

Boundless’ OpenGeo Suite is the leading open-source enterprise geospatial software bundle and it expands Harris’ existing offerings like 1O1T. Boundless experts support and consult around the implementation of OpenGeo Suite components including GeoServer, PostGIS, Open Layers and QGIS.

“We like Boundless’ savvy and nimble approach to providing open source geospatial software and services,” said Tim Ellis, director of Harris’ IntelliEarth geospatial business. “This is a very productive collaboration for both companies and most important, our customers.” 

 “Harris provides top-notch, responsive products for some of the most important geospatial initiatives in the world,” said Boundless CEO Andy Dearing.  “Together, we are extending the possibilities of the open-source geospatial platform.”
