BURLINGTON, MA, October 5, 2009 – The Carbon Project today announced the WFS-T Extender for its Gaia Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) platform. Gaia is one of the world’s most popular geospatial software clients among SDI users and developers, especially those using Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards. The new Extender provides the most powerful and easy-to-use tools to create, edit, or delete data on any vendor's Web Feature Service Transactional (WFS-T).

“With little training anyone can use the Gaia WFS-T Extender to make geospatial contributions and updates without the need for professional GIS. This capability lets any user quickly interact with open geospatial services supported by providers such as ESRI ArcGIS Server, CubeWerx, Intergraph, GeoServer and more,” said Jeff Harrison, President and CEO of The Carbon Project. “The software is designed for a very distributed environment where people need to work online and offline and collaborate with many parties.”
Gaia is a geospatial network platform that provides seamless synergy between Microsoft Bing Maps, Yahoo! Maps, OpenStreetMap, ESRI ArcGIS Server, Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) KML, GML, GMLsf, WMS, WMTS, WFS, Filters, WCS, ESRI Shape, Autodesk and MapInfo formats, and more. The WFS-T Extender is a seamless enhancement to Gaia where tools for geometry editing, one-click schema analysis and transaction rules management become available. In addition, the Gaia WFS-T package includes the powerful Geometry Snap Tools Extender to assist users with generating highly accurate feature geometries.
“Our software extends the Gaia SDI platform with powerful schema analysis and feature profiling tools that allow automated or manual transaction rules, plus various security tools, online/offline capability, bulk transactions, and seamless database locking – all designed to work with any WFS regardless of the providing vendor,” said Nuke Goldstein, CTO of The Carbon Project. “The included Geometry Snap Tools Extender adds the ability to snap edit nodes to any feature in the map, saving users time and improving accuracy when digitizing or editing GML.”
