Laser-Scan Adds Topology Management to University Research 10.30.2002

Laser-Scan is offering students and researchers the chance to expand their knowledge of topology management for FREE.

As part of the new Radius Academic Programme, academic and research institutions will be able to incorporate Radius Topology into their projects. By adding Laser-Scan's newest technology to an Oracle9i database students will learn valuable topology management skills which are much in demand throughout industry. Research work will benefit from ultra-fast spatial queries as well as reliable, high-quality data. Existing GIS applications do not need to be altered*.

The Radius Academic Programme at Laser-Scan establishes a network of universities worldwide to allow the open exchange of ideas and information. Laser-Scan aims to facilitate this exchange through open correspondence, presentations and reports. As well as receiving the complete Radius Topology package FREE, participating institutions will also be offered the chance to take part in seminars and workshops.

Laser-Scan has worked with many universities around the world including:

  • University of Leeds,
  • University of Edinburgh,
  • University of Zurich (Switzerland)
  • University of Muenster (Germany)
  • Technical University of Delft (Netherlands)
  • Lund Institute of Technology (Sweden) and
  • Grenoble Polytechnique (France)

Alistair Edwardes of the University of Zurich will be testing Radius Topology with an open source webmapping framework . Alistair is thrilled at the opportunity to work with Laser-Scan:

"Topology is key to many areas of GI research. Laser-Scan has led the field in providing powerful control and manipulation of topologically structured data in their previous products which is why I'm now looking forward to working with Radius Topology. Laser-Scan's continuing commitment to Universities is now enhanced through the Radius Academic Programme."
