Twenty percent attendance increase as Intergraph advocates enterprise information systems through showcase of industry solutions and customer systems.

Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions kicked off the GeoSpatial World 2004 international management and training conference, hosted by Intergraph and the Intergraph GeoSpatial Users Community (IGUC), by showcasing open solutions and technology that transform geographic information system (GIS)-centric systems into enterprise information systems. Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions President, Preetha Pulusani, welcomed a record crowd of GIS, mapping and IT professionals from 56 countries, 39 states and one territory--more than a 20 percent attendance increase over last year. Opening the conference, Pulusani said that Intergraph is on a mission that simplifies the integration of geospatial data with enterprise information systems to enable businesses and governments to make better and faster operational decisions. She outlined Intergraph's innovative approach that will move GIS from an island of automation by deploying open, geospatial management, analysis, visualization and distribution technology as a core component of an information-centric enterprise. Her keynote address reiterated Intergraph's commitment to open geospatial foundation technology and previewed new and proven products designed to unlock access to data assets and increase operational productivity while decreasing the costs of technology investments and their ongoing management.

Pulusani was joined by Halsey Wise, Intergraph CEO and president, who unveiled Intergraph's new branding initiative, which presents the company in its role as the world leader in delivering software and services for the management and visual representation of complex information.

Throughout the three-day management and training conference, a substantive technical program covered open technology and standards and proven geospatial solutions for utilities, communications, remote sensing and photogrammetry, military and intelligence, national and federal government, regional and local government and transportation markets. Organized into industry tracks, the conference focused on hot topics and systems implementations.

In conjunction with the conference, a one-day education symposium was held to provide information about innovative geospatial research and teaching for instructors, educators and academic researchers in K-12 schools, colleges and universities.
