Autodesk, the global design software and digital content company, has announced that Patrick Air Force Base chose Autodesk’s MapGuide software to create an application
providing web-based, base-wide access to the most current geospatial data related to its assets and facilities. The application, implemented in record time, helps Patrick Air Force Base create, manage, and share data across its organization, delivering map and design data to more people who need it. The application is compliant with United States Air Force GeoBase Enterprise Architecture guidelines, providing an interoperable, standards-based solution that leverages existing mapping IT investments.
The application, called the Base Visualization Tool, helps Patrick Air Force Base integrate its CAD and GIS data into a single spatial store and makes it available to base personnel who need immediate access to mission critical information. The application integrates data from multiple data sources and servers, including aerial photography, floor plans, as-built drawings, and real property data, enabling users to easily and conveniently access this Common Installation Picture via the base network. It can even
integrate geospatial data created by ESRI GIS software and stored in an Oracle database.
