Intergraph Emphasizes Spatial Data Infrastructure Interoperability at 7th GSDI Conference 2.9.04

Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions executives communicate the position of geospatial technology in global sustainable development.

Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions announced its participation at the 7th annual Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Conference (GSDI-7) that was held in the first week of February in Bangalore, India. The global conference brings together professionals who represent national and local government organizations; mapping and cartography agencies; academic and research organizations; and suppliers of spatial data, geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), and photogrammetry and remote sensing solutions. Participants will focus on policies, technologies and applications for enabling an open spatial data environment throughout the world. The conference also addresses the national, regional and global spatial data infrastructure (SDI) initiatives and requirements while attempting to bring technical convergence on these issues, especially in developing countries.

Spatial data infrastructures are vital to making sound decisions at local, regional, state and national levels for the planning and implementation of sustainable infrastructure development, disaster management support, business development, defense and security strategies and many more important government services. With the advent of GIS technology, spatial data handling capabilities have been transformed, making it necessary to re-examine the roles of governments with respect to the supply and availability of geographic information. Users are now able to process a variety of spatial and non-spatial data formats from disparate sources, improving geospatial analysis and synthesis processes. This leads to new insights into the relationships between real-world objects and causes of phenomena.

During GSDI-7, Intergraph executives shared information and experiences of developing and maintaining interoperable spatial data infrastructures through three presentations, as well as participation in an interoperability tutorial.
