Both companies are taking part in the current OGC Web Services initiative testing the expressiveness of GML3.0 in the support of topology.

Laser-Scan is working closely with Ionic Software to investigate new solutions as part of the latest OpenGIS Consortium (OGC) project.

Both companies are taking part in the current Web Services initiative (OWS 1.2). This collaboration will test the expressiveness of GML3.0 in the support of topology.

As part of this evaluation, Ionic will be using Radius Topology tables to provide a storage model for their Web Feature Server (WFS) implementation. Ionic are adapting their WFS to support GML3.0 with topology, while keeping its transactional behaviour.

As well as demonstrating the flexibility of GML3.0 in handling topology, Laser-Scan and Ionic are also looking into the ability to create and maintain topological data over the web. This investigation will see Ionic's existing transactional WFS (WFS-T) integrated with Radius Topology. Radius Topology will allow simple feature data to be structured automatically as it is imported into Oracle.

Radius Topology is an advanced spatial processing environment that extends the standard Oracle9i database and provides dramatic improvements to the speed and quality of spatial data manipulation. Laser-Scan's Radius Topology works behind the scenes, automatically adding topological intelligence to data; existing Oracle spatial software and GIS (Geographical Information System) applications can continue unchanged.

Ionic's "OGC Enabler Suite" is an advanced Suite of Java components acting as interoperable middleware and designed to support deployment of OGC compliant Spatial Data Infrastructures. The Web Edition includes on the server side WMS, WFS, WCS and WTS enabling services together with Catalog and Registry Services. Ionic also offers a rich product line for developing OGC enabled clients, adapted for Web developers, for GML developers or for EAI developers (Enterprise Application Infrastructure).
