Exton, Pa. - July 26, 2006 - Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced a live eSeminar that details Bentley's geospatial vision and strategy to advance GIS for infrastructure. Presented by Styli Camateros, vice president, Bentley Geospatial, the eSeminar looks at the fusion of GIS technologies and engineering applications for infrastructure design and management.

"Bentley's strong position as a geospatial solutions provider is due to its growing ability to meet the unique needs of teams designing and managing infrastructure," said Charles Foundyller, president and CEO of Daratech, Inc. "GIS for infrastructure is one of the fastest-growing areas in the geospatial business. The GIS capabilities that infrastructure teams rely on are distinct and demand capabilities beyond those of traditional GIS applications."

Bentley was just named the world's No. 2 provider of GIS/geospatial software solutions in a new Daratech research study. Bentley's strategy to advance GIS for infrastructure is based on six imperatives:
  • Diversity - The heterogeneous nature of data in building and managing complex infrastructure assets is moving users toward indexing and advanced "find" concepts rather than data aggregation.
  • Modeling reality/3D - 3D modeling makes it easier to visualize infrastructure in its context and improves the quality and speed of decision making.
  • Multidisciplinary teams - Infrastructure needs multidisciplinary teams, which require collaboration engines to succeed.
  • Openness - Open software solutions, including Oracle Spatial 10g, are eliminating the wasted dollars caused by lack of interoperability and freeing users from proprietary systems.
  • Engineering users - Infrastructure is engineering-intensive, and it requires that engineering tasks be integrated into the asset lifecycle.
  • Workflow - This imperative is replacing task-orientation in building and managing infrastructure, and attention to enterprise workflow is delivering cost savings and competitive advantage.

In the new eSeminar, each imperative will be fully explained and illustrated through detailed, real-world case studies. In addition, there will be an in-depth look at the features and benefits of Bentley Geospatial's comprehensive portfolio of products and solutions. The eSeminar, which is being held Aug. 9, 2006, at 11 a.m. EDT, is designed for all geospatial professionals and those working in local government, utilities, communications, road, and rail infrastructure. Participants will learn new approaches to the application of GIS technology to infrastructure projects. To register, visit
