Geospatial Technology Streamlines Construction, Maintenance and Management of Transportation SystemsHUNTSVILLE, Ala.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 4, 2005— Intergraph (NASDAQ: INGR) Mapping and Geospatial Solutions is presenting a breadth of geospatial solutions at the 18th annual GIS for Transportation Symposium (GIS-T) this week in Lincoln, Neb. In booth 39, Intergraph is showcasing solutions designed to increase productivity and improve daily decision making and management for professionals working in the transportation industry. The symposium provides a forum for professionals interested in the design and use of geographic information systems (GIS) for transportation.
State, province, federal, municipal agencies and private organizations within the transportation industry have to keep people and products moving safely, efficiently and without delay on roadways, railways, airport runways and waterways. Industry, public and political communities demand ever-improving service, which adds even more challenge to this complex task. Intergraph offers geospatial solutions to streamline every aspect of inventory data collection, management, analysis and presentation throughout an infrastructure. This enables transportation agencies to focus on building, maintaining and managing a safe and effective transportation system.
Customer production systems on display
With production systems installed at 39 Department of Transportation (DOT) state agencies nationwide and additional provincial, federal and municipal agencies worldwide, Intergraph's broad array of solutions for imaging; geospatial Web portals; roadway asset management and visualization; safety management; and emergency response are proven. Numerous Intergraph customer implementations will be on display during the symposium, including Kansas DOT, Manitoba Transportation and Government Services, Hawaii DOT, Florida DOT, Florida Turnpike Enterprise, Mississippi DOT, Nevada DOT, Ohio DOT and South Carolina Emergency Management Division. Highlighted demonstrations are based on the following geospatial solutions:
-- Enterprise Image Management and Distribution - Intergraph's solution based on TerraShare(R) technology provides users throughout the enterprise with direct and immediate access to all imagery needed for planning, engineering design, construction and maintenance activities within seconds. TerraShare stores, manages and accesses multiple types of imagery and terrain data and helps transportation agencies eliminate time wasted on searching for data or utilizing out-of-date information
-- Enterprisewide Transportation Web Portals - Transportation agencies can provide direct access to all business-critical data directly and immediately with Intergraph's GeoMedia(R) Web technology. Using an n-tier architecture, DOTs can provide open and secure access easily and increase productivity while meeting information requirements from subcontractors, suppliers, transport companies and passengers.
-- Transportation Safety Management - Intergraph combines safety management experience with advanced technologies, including linear reference systems (LRS), location-based services (LBS) and geospatial analysis, to provide a productive solution for safety engineering. Intergraph's solution based on GeoMedia technology includes a complete set of tools to identify high-crash locations and conduct field surveys and analysis.
-- Transportation Asset Management and Visualization - Intergraph's GeoMedia technology enables easy access to network and asset data throughout the organization, allowing professionals to maintain their digital road database using source data regardless of location or format. Direct integration with Hansen Information Technologies provides a complete asset management solution for transportation professionals.
-- Intelligent Transportation Systems - The application of modern geospatial information and communications technology help transportation systems solve the day-to-day challenges of reducing traffic incidents and congestion while saving time and money. Intergraph solutions, based on the open, non-proprietary architecture of Web and mobile technologies, provide critical, real-time information that enables greater control over the transportation system.
