Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions and Laser-Scan announced a reseller agreement that allows Intergraph to resell Radius Topology to its customers. Intergraph and Laser-Scan offer complementary products to ensure the integrity of an organization's valuable geospatial data. Intergraph's GeoMedia full suite of desktop and Web products provides advanced technologies to create, capture, edit, access and analyze even the most complex geospatial data from disparate formats and sources. Radius Topology offers server-based spatial processing capabilities that extend the Oracle9i database.
Bart Hoogenraad, Vice President of Global Marketing, Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions, commented, "Intergraph has enjoyed a strong relationship with Laser-Scan as a Team GeoMedia Registered Solution Center and looks forward to this next step to extend our partnership. We are pleased to provide customers with additional robust technology to advance their use of geospatial data across the enterprise."
Radius Topology works alongside the Oracle9i database and provides improvements to the speed and consistency of spatial data handling. Without requiring the user to take extra steps, Radius Topology dynamically structures topological data before the user submits it to the database.
GeoMedia Professional and GeoMedia Transaction Manager, a long-term transaction management, versioning and temporal data management product, deployed in combination with Oracle9i and Radius Topology, extend the openness and security of data management environments across the enterprise. Combined, the products provide a solid solution to maintain the integrity of geospatial data in a consistent and transparent manner - regardless of which enterprise application is utilized to manipulate the spatial data.
Duncan Guthrie, Sales and Marketing Director, Laser-Scan, said, "Intergraph is one of the world's leading geospatial solutions providers and this agreement confirms the decision we made one year ago to go mainstream with our well-proven geospatial technology. It also shows the versatility of Radius Topology software because this can be implemented on the desktop or over the Web by using Intergraph's GeoMedia Professional or GeoMedia WebMap products."
Radius Topology is currently on display along with Intergraph's GeoMedia products in booths 36-38 at the International Cartographer's Conference in Durban, South Africa, through August 16, 2003.
