Leveraging geospatial data for various purposes across large, disparate organizations that span an entire country is a tremendous challenge especially when geospatial data ownership is decentralized across states. Along with understanding how to share the data effectively, different departments within different agencies need to access and process data in a variety of ways. Organizing and keeping data up-to-date across jurisdictions, while delivering that data in a common way and timely manner are all crucial factors in enabling national agencies and departments to make smarter decisions.
Intergraph was recently awarded a project to help one of Europe’s leading electricity and gas companies to organize and manage geospatial data for the entire country of Germany. Data covering more than 365,000 km² of land area is managed by this program and project specifications required keeping all mapping data up-to-date along with rapid delivery of the data to a variety of regional organizations.
Other important project requirements included:
- Usage of geospatial data services in low-bandwidth and offline networks to meet local and third party needs
- Reliability of the services to meet 24×7 demand
- Ability to serve a heterogeneous GIS environment with multiple end-user systems

With a new product release, you want the world to understand and experience its significance and value. With Intergraph Geospatial 2013, we launched more than one or two products. We launched a complete portfolio of products, touching every area of the geospatial workflow. We believe that this technology is the force behind smarter decisions, with relevance to organizations around the world.
Many organizations solely rely on marketing and communications efforts to update the marketplace on new product developments. However, Intergraph is taking it one step further by actually going on the road in support of the Intergraph Geospatial 2013 launch. This month, we are launching our world tour – a global roadshow that brings Intergraph Geospatial 2013 to key cities.
The first event took place on January 11, 2013, in Calcutta, India. Next week, we have a large event planned in conjunction with India Geospatial Forum. With additional events planned throughout India, and the world tour continuing across North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia Pacific, the tour will provide a means to experience and share the excitement and significance of this release with our customers and partners directly.

Effectively sharing geospatial data inside and outside an organization seems like an easy task given the vast number of offerings that exist today. However, truly leveraging the best of breed information technologies, integrating different genres of geospatial, while leveraging powerful desktop applications continues to be a challenge. Many of today’s offerings hone in one area of expertise, while neglecting other user requirements, thereby failing to provide a cohesive, holistic geospatial server solution. The end result may then alienate or frustrate some stakeholders, ultimately prolonging or even impeding decision-making capabilities.
With the upcoming launch of Intergraph Geospatial 2013, we will help organizations break down the walls that have prevented open and secure sharing of data and web services. Organizations will be able to optimize workflows and get information into the hands of those that need it.
Recently, we announced that Intergraph Geospatial 2013 provides a complete and powerful server portfolio for managing data, delivering web services, web mapping, on-demand geo-processing and workflow development and deployment.

Finally, users can look to one provider for a truly integrated and connected photogrammetry and remote sensing experience. With synchronized releases, users access the new products at the same time in a seamless environment, combining all the power of these two geospatial genres.
By offering users this consolidated system, they can discover and exploit the wealth of information contained in data from any source, share it rapidly (and securely), and deliver it on demand as reliable and actionable information to drive smarter decisions.
In Intergraph Geospatial Portfolio 2013, ERDAS IMAGINE includes all of the LPS tools within the ERDAS IMAGINE ribbon. Offering more simplified workflows for photogrammetry users who work with smaller quantities of raw data, this tighter integration between LPS and ERDAS IMAGINE will significantly enhance overall change detection and image classification capabilities.

Before the end of the year, Intergraph Geospatial Portfolio 2013 will be released. The complete and robust offering includes new product releases that cohesively meet an organization’s geospatial needs.
As part of Intergraph Geospatial 2013, we are excited to announce that GeoMedia 2013 will feature a newly designed, modern user interface that logically organizes functionality in a ribbon control. GeoMedia is a powerful GIS management package that enables users to maximize the value of their geospatial resources.
We recently hosted a webinar that specifically laid out all of the new enhancements to GeoMedia. Providing greater visibility for frequently used GIS tools, GeoMedia 2013 aesthetically and logically organizes functionality. In the same vein of promoting key updates to GeoMedia, we are also enhancing users’ ability to open up their GeoMedia spatial resources and share them with end users throughout their organization.

We live in a world that requires organizations to have a real sense of the world around them – from air, space and on the ground. As such, geospatial data has become the backbone for driving fundamental decisions that ensure organizational success, as well as for supporting government program missions.
Later this year, we are launching Intergraph Geospatial 2013, offering the full spectrum of geospatial technology in a united release. With a fresh approach, this technology enables organizations to discover and exploit the wealth of information contained in data from any source, share it rapidly and deliver it on demand to drive smarter decisions.
Recently, we hosted a webinar that showcased one of the products included in this release, highlighting how ERDAS IMAGINE 2013 expands on its proven technology. With a host of usability enhancements and new features, users can do more with multiple types of data.

Most large organizations are comprised of multi-disciplinary environments with many departments, roles and geographic jurisdictions. As such, conventional GIS solutions often cannot fully meet the complex requirements that are needed for making geospatial data actionable.
In fact, user access is often one of the driving challenges. While all users in an organization may require access to common data, access to specific records may vary depending on department, role, or geographic jurisdiction. In addition, as project lifecycles change, user access requirements may also vary.
Recently, Aurora Energy in Australia made a decision to simplify their workflows and streamline communication. Aurora Energy, and many other diverse organizations worldwide, have discovered and implemented GeoMedia Smart Client. At GeoMedia Smart Client’s core is a highly configurable rules and workflow engine that enables organizations to implement dynamic life-cycle workflows, feature-level access control, data validation and behavior, and integration to other systems.
We recently hosted a webinar that provided an overview of this unique solution. In addition, we demonstrated how Intergraph’s software provides a powerful, web-based smart client that supports high-end functionality, including vector data capture and editing.
GeoMedia Smart Client meets a unique need in the marketplace. Between those working with a rigid and technically demanding desktop GIS and a static, lightweight browser-based GIS, there exists a large potential user base. This solutions equips this broader audience of users, providing a new means for them to access and use rich geospatial data in their business processes. In addition, organizations can create a single deployment that can be configured for an unlimited number of applications.
From municipalities and transportation and utility infrastructure operators to government emergency management agencies, there is a wide range of organizations that have effectively deployed this solution.
As today’s geospatial needs are becoming more complex, I highly recommend viewing our webinar to learn more about this unique solution for a smarter GIS.
