A Dutch company developed innovative geodata management software. Point clouds, raster and vector data are controlled in an integrated environment. Data can be queried on all attributes defined in flexible data models. This model can be configured by end-users and has several options to import, export and download data. The company is looking for energy- and cable related clients and also engineering service providers, for license agreements with training and assistance.
An increasing number of organizations is depending on spatial data like raster satellite images, field observations and elevations models. The task to manage this data is getting more challenging, because of a constantly increasing number of data sources and volume of acquired data. Spatial data, just as any other kind of data, can only be processed and distributed effectively when the structure of the data and the origin of data (metadata) are known and modelled accordingly. Data modelling improves data quality by structuring and validation and allows fast data retrieval for customized visualization and downloading by searching on metadata and location. This company offers a software solution designed to manage large amounts of spatial data powered by the unique concept of flexible data modelling. Flexible data modelling enforces the configuration of custom spatial data models at runtime to stay aligned to changing organizational information needs. The configured data models guide the import and validation and form the core of a spatial search engine to share spatial data directly with end-users. The application is a fully web-based solution as users only need a web browser and an internet connection to configure data models and share spatial data. The application covers the complete data management chain of organizations from data sources through the services required for the end-user. Data Source functionality is available create to import data from files, link directly to external database sources and harvest data from Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant Web Feature Services (WFS). The application offers functionality to import Geography Markup Language (GML) based data models that can be configured further. The flexible data model relates the datasets from various data sources to each other and is the linking pin between data sources and data services. The configurable data services allow the end-users to access datasets stored in the application. Datasets are used in the application for visualization, further processing and export. Users can configure various services to meet specific data demands like web portals and web services to publish and share data. Standards: - Open Geospatial Consortium Web Map Service (OGC WMS) - Open Geospatial Consortium Web Feature Service (OGC WFS) - ISO 19115 - European Petroleum Survey Group (EPSG) - Geography Markup Language (GML) - ESRI Shapefile (a common used format for geographic information) - Light Detection And Ranging of Laser Imaging Detection And Ranging (Lidar) This Dutch company is looking for clients. That can be any kind of company that uses location data from different sources, but most likely they are energy, cable and water companies and engineering service providers. Cooperation can be done in the frame of a license agreement, with training and assistance.
Innovations and advantages
This geomanagement data software is unique in the world. Currently, to combine geodata from different sources and make them applicable, every time a new piece of software has to be written. This software offers a standard, in which the modelling concept can be configured to the needs of the client. Furthermore: - all functionality web based available - high performance for large point cloud (multi-beam sonar, ground radar, Lidar, drone survey’s) and raster data (remote sensing, satellite data) - runtime enterprise changes of datamodels - sharing data using webservices quering data actively - middelware based on Java so deployment on all available hardware platform possible. - using commodity relational database’s like Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQL server, MySQL as a back end storage. The software configures these databases automatically. - Available as cloud solution as well as in software licence.
