Southampton, UK., 15 May 2013 -- Snowflake Software, specialists in data exchange solutions via Open Standards, and Keysoft Solutions, specialists in highway design, maintenance and engineering solutions, are proud to announce their recent technology partnership. The new technology partnership not only compliments both companies’ strengths in data and information management but also enables future opportunities for collaboration and innovation.
KeyOSC (Ordnance Survey Companion) Mapper from Keysoft Solutions utilises Snowflake’s GO Loader data loading software, enabling organisations to work with Ordnance Survey Background Maps inside of AutoCAD.
KeyOSC Mapper enables organisations to share their OS MasterMap data held in a central database (Oracle or SQL) with AutoCAD users without the need for the duplication of data. It extends the functionality of AutoCAD allowing users to access seamless background maps, locate their site using a range of tools and load the view into their drawing as CAD entities.
Snowflake’s off-the-shelf GO Loader software is the complete, easy-to-use solution for converting and loading OS MasterMap files into an Oracle (Spatial and Locator) or SQL Server 2008 database. With pre-defined project templates for OS MasterMap layers users are able to get started quickly and easily. Designed and built by the original technical architects of OS MasterMap, GO Loader is used by Local Authorities to the UK’s leading companies to load hundreds of millions of OS MasterMap features on a daily basis.
“It is a pleasure to partner with industry experts Keysoft Solutions and to together provide a complete data management solution which enables the integration of CAD and GIS systems. Our technology partnerships reinforce our continued commitment at Snowflake to support System Integrators who want to build innovative products and services with our technology. We look forward to working with the team at Keysoft Solutions and to forging a strong relationship.” comments Ian Painter, Managing Director of Snowflake.
Jeremy Ellis, Managing Director of Keysoft Solutions, said: “KeyOSC Mapper provides the missing link for AutoCAD users wishing to access seamless mapping data already held within their corporate database. Snowflake’s GO Loader completes the solution we can offer as it converts OS MasterMap data into either an Oracle or SQL database that can be shared by AutoCAD and GIS users alike. With the need to offer solutions that deliver real benefits to our customers our partnership with Snowflake is not only timely but provides an opportunity to develop stronger links between CAD and GIS in the future.”
