At SPATIAL-TECH 2004, held in Orlando Sept. 27-29, Intergraph highlighted the interoperability advancements of its geospatial intelligence solutions through demonstrations of real-world security scenarios.

At the SPATIAL-TECH 2004 Symposium, Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions (booth #711) highlighted the interoperability advancements of its geospatial intelligence solutions through demonstrations of real-world security scenarios. Geospatial capabilities are increasingly being used by first responders, emergency management officials and government leaders for critical infrastructure protection and public safety. Intergraph geospatial intelligence solutions enable these officials to combine data from diverse sources, such as local, state, national and private sector organizations, into a single environment for better decision making and response. SPATIAL-TECH 2004, held in Orlando the 27th through the 29th, focused on advancing the understanding of the geospatial technologies industry and its critical role in homeland security.

Governments use Intergraph's open and industry standards-based systems to rapidly visualize and understand complex spatial data in order to make confident, effective decisions. Intergraph geospatial intelligence solutions have capabilities for the integration and exploitation of available data, generation of raster data products that may be interchanged with other agencies and countries and processing of classified and commercial imagery, thus enabling an open spatial enterprise. In establishing an open spatial enterprise, Intergraph solutions facilitate real-time updates giving users across the enterprise access to the most up-to-date information possible.

On display at the symposium were Intergraph's advanced technologies that enable organizations to capture, create, manage, exploit and distribute the latest spatial data for immediate use. Demonstrations of Intergraph Web solutions feature the use of a common Web browser to discover and hit various data sources from around the world. Users can more quickly and easily discover current geospatial data from various Internet and intranet sources and bring them together into a Common Relevant Operating Picture (CROP) for enhanced decision making. Highlighted in the Web demonstrations are the use of the latest Open Geospatial Consortium's (OGC) interoperability standards, OGC Web Services Phase-2 (OWS-2) and Geographic Mark-up Language (GML) 3.1 that streamline data exchange and sharing within multi-vendor enterprises or outside organizations. Attendees also got a glimpse of a technology preview of Intergraph's GeoMedia Image Scout. The soon-to-be-released product features advanced image exploitation capabilities, including ultra-smooth pan, roam and zoom, for the analysis and intensification of multi-source geospatial data.
