Virginia, USA, 11 April 2007: The Carbon Project announces full support for the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Filter Encoding Specification (FE) in CarbonTools PRO. The addition will allow Microsoft Windows-based systems to access an array of Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) content for real-time updates, decision support, analysis and other mission critical applications.
“The Filter framework in CarbonTools PRO will let developers quickly add complex spatial, logical and comparison queries to their applications, using a language that’s in the ‘comfort zone’ of mainstream programmers rather than GIS professionals,” said Nuke Goldstein, CTO of The Carbon Project.
“As the editor of the OGC Filter Encoding Specification, CubeWerx is pleased to see the Carbon Project implementation. This implementation leads a growing movement for open, standards-based interoperable technology and it will immediately benefit government agencies and commercial enterprises,” said Edric Keighan, President and CEO of Cubewerx.
