BURLINGTON, MA, February 24, 2010 - The Carbon Project today announced it presented its geospatial crowd-sourcing solutions at the ESRI Federal User Conference last week in Washington, D.C.
The presentation highlighted a Cloud-based (deployed on Microsoft Azure) "geo-synchronization" platform for crowd-sourced data production. The platform was demonstrated by synchronizing geospatial services from ESRI's ArcGIS Server working with SQL Server 2008 and an Oracle-based CubeWerx server. The geo-synchronization platform was developed in collaboration with US Government customers.
"If you look at the geospatial community a key emerging area are widely-used geospatial services like ArcGIS Server that offer new angles on data production. What's the angle? ArcGIS Server and other products implement Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) WFS Transactions - a standard way to share non-imagery content," said Nuke Goldstein of The Carbon Project. "The CarbonCloud Sync platform is designed to coordinate data operations by users and synchronize these operations across different services, platforms and vendors."
Once a year, the FedUC brings together users and organizations working on the challenges facing our nation and our world. The presentation was part of a major conference that brought together government and industry professionals to explore the vision and reality of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) for the nation.
