Norcross, Georgia , USA — December 17, 2008 — ERDAS announces that OpenStreetMap has been added to ERDAS TITAN 2009 as the default basemap in the TITAN Viewer. OpenStreetMap is a free, editable map of the world.
ERDAS TITAN enables users and organizations to easily make their geospatial data available, while retaining digital ownership rights. Using a 3D virtual globe, users can create data and content mashups that can be quickly published and viewed by others. OpenStreetMap may now be utilized as a basemap for that 3D virtual globe. ERDAS TITAN also translates data on the fly to “view only” formats for consumption into a variety of geospatial applications, including Google Earth, Microsoft Virtual Earth, ERDAS IMAGINE, ArcMap and more.
OpenStreetMap allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative way from anywhere on Earth. The maps are created using data from portable GPS devices, aerial photography and other free sources. Registered users can upload GPS track logs and edit the vector data.
“Incorporating OpenStreetMap into ERDAS TITAN strengthens both applications, and highlights two products that encourage users to share their worlds,” said Mladen Stojic , Senior Vice President, Product Management and Marketing, ERDAS. “ERDAS TITAN provides access to unlimited public and private data resources and enables consumption in a variety of desktop, Internet and 3D virtual globe applications.”
ERDAS TITAN has also released a number of other enhancements, including attribute based symbology for point vectors in the TITAN Viewer. With multi-screen support, users can span one TITAN Viewer display across multiple PCs/screens, creating the illusion that the numerous displays are one contiguous display. In addition, users can locally add multiple DEMs as terrain sources in the TITAN Viewer, thereby making adjacent terrains stitch together.
