Alabama, USA, 15 June 2006: Intergraph Corporation announced on June 15 that the City of Milan, Italy, Department of GIS and Cartography, has selected Intergraph technology to integrate the city’s base cartography with regional technical cartographic information featuring a different scale. Intergraph’s open architecture enables seamless integration of the data, which is housed in disparate databases and maintained using other vendors’ software.

Using Intergraph technology, the City of Milan can integrate and edit vast amounts of cartographic data from multiple repositories with scales ranging from 1:1,000 to 1:10,000. The main goal of the first phase of the project was to demonstrate the feasibility of map generalization from urban scale (1:1.000) to regional scale (1:10.000) with the objective to automate the production of the regional maps starting from maps at larger scale.
