BURLINGTON, MA, April 20, 2010 – The Carbon Project today announced the data production tool for its Gaia spatial data infrastructure (SDI) platform was featured in an OGC demonstration at the recent 2010 ESRI Developer Summit in Palm Springs, California. Part of the "Leveraging the OGC Capabilities of ArcGIS Server 10" thread, the Gaia WFS-T Extender was demonstrated as a plug-and-play editing and transaction client to ESRI's ArcGIS Server 10 Web Feature Service Transactional (WFS-T).
"When you look at the geospatial community a key emerging area are open geospatial services like those in ArcGIS Server 10 that offer new angles on data production. What's the angle? ArcGIS Server and other products implement Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) WFS Transactions - a standard way for users to pull in geospatial information and then contribute back their own content," said Jeff Harrison, President and CEO of The Carbon Project.
"The Gaia WFS-T Extender allows geospatial edits and updates using WFS-T and Geography Markup Language (GML) in both online and offline environments. The software wraps OGC standards into an easy-to-use application accessible to anyone, including non-GIS users. The app plugs-and-plays with WFS-T from ESRI and other vendors and we hope it promotes collaborative SDI," said Nuke Goldstein of The Carbon Project.
A free Gaia WFS-T Extender evaluation is part of the latest Gaia package and available for download now at http://www.thecarbonproject.com/Products/gaia_wfst.php
The Gaia WFS-T Extender is also part of CarbonCloud Sync - a Cloud or server-hosted collaboration capability for crowd-sourcing data production and updates over a network of OGC services.
