Gemeente Eindhoven selects Snowflake's GO Loader

    Snowflake Software takes pleasure in announcing that the Gemeente Eindhoven has recently joined its GO Loader user group, utilizing the tool to load GML for the city's future building applications.

November 15, 2007- Since Geonovum - the Dutch National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) executive committee - introduced the basis model for GML in the Netherlands (NEN3610), there has been growing interest in and activities around GML. Under this basis model, a range of GML datasets are appearing including IMRO2006 (for planning), IMKICH (cultural history) and IMWA (water) to name a few. It is the IMRO2006 schema that is now becoming a common requirement for the municipalities with the gemeente Eindhoven leading the way in its implementation.

The city of Eindhoven has long been creating its building application plans with the ROPlan software from Bentley. With the introduction of IMRO2006, this software has now been adapted to create GML files. "We didn't have conversion software, however, to import GML data into our Oracle Spatial environment," explained René Bertrams, gemeente Eindhoven . "We therefore approached Snowflake to evaluate GO Loader. Following extensive testing, we decided to buy the tool set based strongly on the fact that the software is very user-friendly and helps to build tables and indexes in our Oracle database. So even without in-depth knowledge of Oracle Spatial, it is possible to load the data. We were also impressed with the very accurate and responsive service and support of the Snowflake organization. We can now look forward to using ROPLan and Snowflake's software in our production environment."

"The Dutch market is extremely important to Snowflake Software, not least because it truly demonstrates the benefits and flexibility of open standards," commented Ian Painter, Managing Director of Snowflake Software. "The original design of GO Loader took into consideration the fact that multiple GML datasets would be in distribution on a world-wide basis. We therefore developed the tool with a unique schema parsing technology - in this way, GO Loader adapts to any national GML standard. Working with the gemeente Eindhoven and proving these capabilities with IMRO2006 has been very exciting for us."

Snowflake Software will be presenting " GML - bringing NEN3610 to life" at the GIN Congress in Amsterdam , November 21-23.
