US: Intergraph is expanding its utilities infrastructure management solutions with new, open standards-based on spatial data infrastructure (SDI) capabilities to foster greater interoperability. Intergraph SDI capabilities enable secure, fast and seamless access to geospatial data published by different organisations, improving collaboration for emergency response and incident management, and increasing productivity for utility network planning, design, construction, maintenance and operations.
The newest version, G/Technology 10.1, supports the use of data published via the Web using the standard OGC Web service interfaces, Web Feature Service (WFS) and Web Map Service (WMS). This can be data related to weather, utility structure, flood plains, environmental restrictions, parcel maps or any other geospatial data originating from a GIS system that conforms to OGC standards.
“As more organisations embrace the use of geospatial technology for critical functions, open technology platforms and interoperability become crucial components of utilities solutions,” said Tony DiMarco, Executive Director, Global Utilities & Communications for Intergraph. “Intergraph is staying a step ahead of industry demand by setting the stage for secure, standards-based collaboration between utilities and other organisations. Intergraph is also an active participant in many standards bodies, ensuring the sustainability of our SDI solutions as needs evolve.”
