ALEXANDRIA, VA, February 15, 2008 – The Carbon Project will release a major update to CarbonArc PRO, its Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) 1.0 extension for ArcGIS, at the ESRI Federal User Conference on February 20 in Washington, DC.
SDI 1.0 is a selected suite of OGC standards endorsed as part of ongoing efforts by government agencies to promote interoperability.
CarbonArc PRO 1.5 brings a new generation of SDI 1.0 compliant data discovery and production tools directly to the ArcGIS desktop. “CarbonArc PRO 1.5 wraps the OGC SDI suite of standards into a new generation of user friendly data production tools for the ESRI ArcGIS 9.2 desktop,” said Jeff Harrison, President and CEO of The Carbon Project.
“The Carbon Project offers excellent support for OGC standards. This release of The Carbon Project’s SDI 1.0 ArcGIS extension provides ArcGIS users more options for enhanced interoperability,” said Satish Sankaran, Product Manager for Interoperability and Standards at ESRI.
“This release of CarbonArc PRO provides new and enhanced feature data production tools based on OGC SDI 1.0, a key need for federal users,” said Nuke Goldstein, CTO and COO of The Carbon Project. “By plugging into ArcGIS, CarbonArc PRO lets people use SDI 1.0 services and data as an integral part of the GIS, including WMS, WFS, WFS-T, WCS, Filter Encoding (FE), Gazetteer, GML, GMLsf and Catalog Services (CS-W). In addition our Microsoft Virtual Earth extension allows access to tile based world maps all as an integral part of the GIS.”
CarbonArc PRO has been selected by multiple government customers and has been featured in many recent interoperability demonstrations.
