BURLINGTON, MA, October 17, 2007 – The Carbon Project will showcase Microsoft Virtual Earth and OGC® Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) 1.0 at GEOINT 2007 on October 21-24 in San Antonio, Texas - highlighting technology that brings together Virtual Earth and SDI 1.0 for mission critical solutions.
The Virtual Earth platform is an immersive online mapping and search experience that lets public and private-sector organizations easily discover, search, explore, share and visualize location data and locally relevant information. OGC SDI 1.0 is a selected suite of standards from the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc.
The Virtual Earth/SDI 1.0 showcase includes –
CarbonTools PRO - an extension to Microsoft .NET that supports advanced location content handling, mapping and sharing. CarbonTools PRO is a toolkit for software developers that makes .NET and SDI integration possible, meaning Virtual Earth and SDI 1.0 can work together on any Window-based system in the GEOINT community.
Gaia 3.1 – a free .NET application for accessing, visualizing and sharing location content. Gaia 3.1 lets you seamlessly access and use a vast array of location content and services from your Windows desktop, including Virtual Earth and SDI 1.0.
CarbonArc PRO – an extension to ESRI’s ArcGIS 9.2 that makes Virtual Earth and SDI 1.0 an integral part of the GIS desktop. ESRI’s ArcGIS is the primary commercial component in many GEOINT production and analysis systems.
“The Carbon Project’s integration of OGC® SDI 1.0 and Virtual Earth is a great example of how the Virtual Earth platform can be used by innovative companies like The Carbon Project to add unique capabilities to all types of applications,” said Jerry Skaw, Marketing Comm Manager, Public Sector, Virtual Earth at Microsoft Corp.
“One of the highlights of GEOINT will certainly be Microsoft Virtual Earth working inside ESRI’s ArcGIS 9.2 software through CarbonArc PRO,” said Nuke Goldstein, CTO and COO of The Carbon Project. “With CarbonArc PRO warriors and analysts can use Virtual Earth and any SDI 1.0 web service as an integral part of the GIS, including WMS, WFS, WFS-T, WCS, Filter Encoding, Gazetteer, GML, GMLsf and Catalog Services (CS-W).”
