Point of Beginning

SIS Invites JACIE Attendees to See Accuracy Analyst Version 2.0

March 12, 2010

Starkville, Miss. -- Spatial Information Solutions, Inc. (SIS), will demonstrate Version 2.0 of Accuracy Analyst at the Joint Agency Commercial Imagery Evaluation (JACIE) conference. Company President Chuck O’Hara will give an invited demonstration on Tuesday, 16 March, at the Fairfax Marriott, Fair Oaks, Virginia, during the Reception and Poster Session. He is available for one-on-one scheduling as well by sending an email to cgohara@spatialis.

Accuracy Analyst is the only software solution to determine locational accuracy of the image data used to produce maps. The user-friendly interface means staff are productively using the software after 30 minutes of training. This software saves over 90% of the time needed for traditional accuracy assessment. Version 2.0 adds three major enhancements: Survey Location Planner, PhotoBook, and ReViewer. In addition, more report customization is available. A new 23-page User Guide updated for version 2.0 is available.

Survey Location Planner enables users to load existing image data, select desired survey (control or check) points for field work planning, and output a set of points-of-interest (POIs or waypoints) that may be added to vehicle navigation systems so teams can easily navigate to the collection sites.

Accuracy Analyst now provides an integrated photo book that displays pictures taken on the ground (during surveying) of checkpoint locations or images of surveying sketches that enable enhanced identification of exact survey checkpoint locations from image data. When the user moves to a checkpoint in Accuracy Analyst, PhotoBook automatically loads the images needed by the analyst to identify the photo location quickly and with confidence.

The ReViewer interface enables map producers to deliver a shared analytics solution to data customers that will enable them to review the error analysis and also look closely at the image data delivered, select tiled image data, and "mark up" the tiles as to whether the image data is acceptable or if it requires refinements or adjustments.

Version 2.0 is being made freely available to all existing customers. New customers can purchase Accuracy Analyst online at www.spatialis.com/products/accuracy/. Pricing starts at $500 per seat for commercial organizations, $400 per seat for government agencies, and volume discounts are available. Education pricing, including teaching bundles, is also available.
