Storage Area Networks and ImageLinks, announced a strategic agreement to deliver ImageLinks RasterWare spatial information processing engine within the SANz EarthWhere family of geospatial data management products. RasterWare provides a fully scalable, server-based spatial data processing environment controlled by the end user through a web browser. The integration of RasterWare provides end users with “point and click” processing and delivery of custom spatial products from the EarthWhere archive directly to the end user’s desktop.
As spatial information becomes more prevalent in corporate computing environments, end users will require more immediate access to their information. The integration of the RasterWare spatial processing technology with EarthWhere’s data management system creates a comprehensive solution for organizations challenged with supporting a wide variety of custom data requirements. By managing an archive of frequently used “source” data and providing the tools to develop custom datasets on the fly, EarthWhere can support the diverse data requirements of a wide range of enterprise environments.
SANz plans to unveil the new offering at the upcoming FIG 2002 conference in Washington, DC where SANz will exhibit with Sun Microsystems in booth 1604.
