GeoTango provided GeoServNet Globe and GeoServNet Analyst technologies to support a number of scenarios in the demo, and response to the capabilities of the GeoServNet tools was very positive.

GeoTango International Corp., a Canadian developer of 3D geospatial technologies, was a participant in the recent Joint Warrior Interoperability Demonstration exercise. GeoTango provided GeoServNet Globe and GeoServNet Analyst technologies to support a number of scenarios. Response to the capabilities of the GeoServNet tools was very positive and the Ottawa Citizen called GeoTango's technology "impressive."

GeoServNet (GSN) was tested and demonstrated successfully as an engineering trial during the JWID 04 experiment, under the lead of Paul Morin from J2 IM. The tool was configured to support the Homeland Security scenarios, allowing for smooth access to detailed geospatial data of the key areas and the display of animated objects such as the simulation of a smoke plume generated by a dirty bomb.

GeoTango's GeoServNet technology is a web distributed Geospatial Information Services (GIServices) platform which supports the rapid transmission and visualization of geospatial information in web or networked environments. The GeoServNet framework is interoperable with a variety of systems, and provides support for OpenGIS standards in addition to its own specialized data transmission capabilities. In addition to funding from Defense Canada, GeoTango was recently awarded a contract by GeoInnovations to further enhance and develop this technology into a commercial 3D client tool. GeoInnovations is one of the programs funded by GeoConnections, a national partnership initiative led by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to build the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) and provide Canadians with access to geospatial data, tools and services over the Internet.

GeoTango International Corp. is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and is a leading developer of 3D geospatial technologies. GeoTango provides software for desktop and web-based 3D geospatial visualization, as well as core services focusing on customized geospatial products, web-distributed geospatial systems and web portals. Current users of GeoTango include government, defense and commercial organizations in Canada and around the world
