Norcross, GA - August 1, 2008 - ERDAS Inc. announces ERDAS APOLLO 2009, a new generation Geospatial Business System that eliminates the walls between GIS, photogrammetry and remote sensing, extending geospatial data to business applications throughout an organization.
Many geospatial data providers and those in the public sector and civil engineering, oil, gas and land management industries work with a wide variety of geospatial data types distributed across departments, offices and regions. ERDAS APOLLO solves the business problems associated with managing and serving large volumes of geospatial data located and distributed across an organization. An alternative to existing market solutions, ERDAS APOLLO simplifies the utilization of vector, raster and terrain data. Supporting numerous geospatial data formats, ERDAS APOLLO seamlessly integrates with existing GIS environments and business applications.
ERDAS APOLLO leverages existing business systems, such as the Oracle database for persisting intelligent metadata and application specific information. Proven IT standards such as JavaEE, SOAP/WSDL, and REST integrate ERDAS APOLLO into business environments, also meeting organizations’ security requirements.
Providing a robust Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) environment, ERDAS APOLLO finds, describes, manages and serves geospatial information to users inside and outside an organization. Extremely scalable, ERDAS APOLLO provides rapid delivery of unprecedented volumes of geospatial information to domain specific desktop and web client applications. Compliant with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ERDAS APOLLO implements WMS, WCS, WFS, WFS-T and CS-W standards and the ECW-P and JPIP wavelet streaming protocols.
ERDAS APOLLO can also catalog and deliver an organization’s geospatial data over the web. With publishing and consuming capabilities, ERDAS APOLLO implements a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for your organization, user community, or nation. ERDAS APOLLO is flexible, while ensuring a high level of security through administrator defined privileges. Users can develop vertical market applications using an extensible web and rich client application framework. Supporting numerous vector and raster data formats, users can also customize support for new or classified formats.
“At ERDAS, we develop solutions that help organizations harness the information of the changing Earth, transforming geospatial data into business information,” said Mladen Stojic, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Marketing, ERDAS. “ERDAS APOLLO breaks through the walls that separate geospatial and business data, quickly managing and serving large volumes of geospatially enriched business information across an organization. Consumers are excited to know that they now have an option when building enterprise solutions.”
