Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging Releases New Version of Leica ADE with Oracle 11g Compatibility

October 18, 2007

Norcross, GA -- Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging today released a new version of Leica ADE, with the ability to handle Oracle 11g data. An innovative product suite, Leica ADE contains web-based and mobile enterprise applications for editing Oracle Spatial data in both a connected and disconnected environment. Extending the value of Oracle, Leica ADE combines business information with geospatial content.

Participating in the Oracle 11g Beta program, Leica ADE now provides editing of user-defined data types, including Shapefiles (.shp). As well as being fully integrated with the Oracle Database and Application Server, the new version of Leica ADE also offers enhanced digitizing capabilities and support of Oracle MapViewer, a J2EE service for rendering maps managed by Oracle Spatial. MapViewer features supported by Leica ADE include the Linear Referencing System, GeoRaster and Workspace Manager.

These enhancements provide Leica ADE with more comprehensive feature editing and data management capabilities. Efficiently handling spatial and non-spatial information, Leica ADE is further equipped for use in the field or office, using a mobile client, the web, desktop or laptop computer.

“Leica ADE is a complete enterprise-enabled solution providing geospatial access, analytics and accurate data capture in a web or mobile application,” said Mladen Stojic, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Marketing, Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging. “With Oracle 11g compatibility, Leica ADE is empowered to offer a broader collection of applications with real time visualization, query and synchronous editing of both geospatial and business data.”
