September 23, 2009 -- UK GIS supplier GGP Systems has launched a new Spatial Data version of its GIS. GGP GIS 2009 has the ability to read from and write into spatial databases including Microsoft’s SQL Server 2008, Oracle 9i and 10g (Locator or Spatial), and Postgresql with PostGIS. The system can also store complex GIS layers in compliance with Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) international standards.
GGP’s spatial database capability allows information to be freely shared between departments or other organisations. This eliminates data silos, reducing data duplicity and improving system interoperability. The use of standard storage formats in GGP 2009 will also enable joining up of diverse datasets to provide a richer information resource.
“In order to maximise the potential of geographic information as a corporate resource, it is essential that large volumes of data can be securely stored and accessed by authorised users,” commented Tim Maxwell, Managing Director of GGP Systems. “The integration of multiple spatial databases within GGP GIS 2009 will provide the foundation for deploying enterprise wide spatial information and facilitate either web based or wireless location based applications.”
As well as the spatial data storage functionality, GGP 2009 supports Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, as well as offering improved data security and user authentication.
GGP GIS 2009 also includes more secure password storage, a simpler user authentication pass through and account generation wizard for improved data / user management and security, full OGC compliant storage of Ordnance Survey MasterMap data in SQL Server 2008, additional support for image file formats and improved stability in a Citrix environment.
GGP GIS 2009 is part of a suite of software solutions from GGP Systems that includes an upgraded version of GGP’s browser based GIS eGGP and GGP’s land, property and street gazetteer management software GGP NGz (NLPG and NSG).
