The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), acting on behalf of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, has signed an agreement with IONIC Enterprise for the purchase of IONIC’s products for deployment as part of the NASA sponsored Kentucky KLC project. IONIC works in the field of interoperability location-based services, web-mapping, distributed geo-processing and imagery. Following the Commonwealth’s directive to implement an OGC compliant architecture, IONIC’s software was licensed for exchanging spatial data between the Commonwealth’s State offices and a number of Kentucky counties. IONIC’s RedSpider product line, including RedSpider Web 3 and RedSpider Studio 3 were selected. IONIC’s partner, Sanborn, will be providing a .NET front end for the development of Internet GIS mapping web sites that provide OGC interoperability at the backend and that allow users to seamlessly pull data from different servers in different formats.
