Breaking News: Australian Oracle Spatial User Forum
Laser-Scan is pleased to announce that Radius Topology now supports the topology data model feature of Oracle® Spatial 10g, an option to Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition. Laser-Scan is a member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork.
In May 2002, Laser-Scan launched Radius Topology, the world's first interoperable, persistent, server-side topology management solution for an Oracle RDBMS. Radius Topology includes over 10 years worth of spatial development efforts, and allows organizations to use a mainstream relational database environment. This solution allows organizations to seamlessly integrate their business and spatial data; ensures the quality of their largest data assets, resulting in accurate and timely business decisions; and protects their investment in those assets.
Radius Topology was originally released for Oracle Database 9i Release 1 and uses its own storage tables in Oracle9i. Radius Topology has also supported Oracle Database 10g in this fashion, since the release of Oracle Database 10g in 2004. Laser-Scan is pleased to announce that the latest release of Radius Topology now supports the Oracle Spatial 10g topology storage model, and is available for cadastral and land information management users.
Radius Topology now makes native use of Oracle's persistent SDO_TOPO_MAP object, and the first release includes the following features:
This announcement comes in the wake of Laser-Scan's increased activity in the Oracle Spatial domain with recent successes in France, Ireland, Portugal and the United Kingdom through close collaboration with partners.
Steve Hagan, Vice President of Server Technologies at Oracle comments,
"We have worked closely with Laser-Scan for a number of years to deliver topology solutions for customers. Laser-Scan's new ability to support the Oracle10g topology model is exciting and will offer an open, standards-based approach for managing data in Oracle Spatial. This close working relationship with Laser-Scan reflects our continued commitment to high quality topology management solutions."
Dr Michael Sanderson, Chief Executive Officer at Laser-Scan adds,
"This enables Laser-Scan to bring its core competencies for topology creation and maintenance to a wider customer base. It answers questions we have been fielding since Radius Topology was released in relation to additional storage requirements.
Many organisations want to streamline their business operations and share data across their organisation, in order to undertake this task effectively the underlying data must be fit for purpose. It is exactly this data quality assurance that we provide in an Oracle RDBMS environment meaning that end users can share business and spatial data together knowing that they do not have to spend huge amounts of time reengineering business processes due to data quality issues."
Laser-Scan, Open Spatial and Autodesk sponsored the Australian Oracle Spatial User Forum. Open Spatial demonstrated Radius Topology to delegates in attendance.
Oracle was the main sponsor for Laser-Scan's User & Partner Conference 2005, which took place last month in Cambridge, England.
