Technology to help government departments meet targets.

Meeting targets for joined up government gets a helping hand from a new offering, on show at next month's Government Computing event. In combination with the new Central Government Service Level Agreement with the Ordnance Survey, this new offering is set to revolutionise the way government departments deal with their data.

Cambridge company, Laser-Scan, alongside partners GDC and Snowflake Software, will be demonstrating its latest product, which provides dramatic improvements to the speed and quality of spatial data handling, enabling organisations to take advantage of intelligent data such as OS MasterMap.

Radius Topology is an advanced spatial processing environment, which extends the Oracle9i database and adds intelligence to spatial data: this means increased reliability and accuracy, allowing users to realise the full potential of their information.

GDC will be showing how Radius Topology enhances their PlanWeb 2 product to provide full snapping and editing within a web based GIS. These new functions will enable users to derive greater benefit from Oracle9i with Radius Topology and exploit their data more fully.

Snowflake Software will demonstrate their new GO-Loader product, which can directly stream GML (Geography Markup Language) data, such as OS MasterMap, into the Oracle Spatial environment. The combination of GO-Loader and Radius Topology will give users the power to handle the complex features of intelligent data sets like OS MasterMap.

Government Computing is a pre-launch event for Radius Topology, which will be launched at OracleWorld, Copenhagen, 24-27 June 2002.
