MCLEAN, Va. — SPADAC, provider of spatially enhanced technology solutions, has been awarded a contract by the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MIDA) of Panama to develop and implement an enterprise solution for spatial data management in partnership with Google EarthTM through its Latin American reseller Gtt NetCorp Latin America.
Building upon its patented EarthWhere technology, SPADAC will support Gtt NetCorp as it implements spatial data management policies and principles throughout the MIDA enterprise. As a reseller for Google Earth in Latin America, Gtt NetCorp will also implement Google Earth as part of the solution.
The objective of the system will be to provide MIDA with a means to organise internal geospatial data, discover departmental holdings of geospatial data and distribute geospatial data inter-agency wide within the country and internationally. This new data management system will also allow MIDA to interchange data with other organizations within the country.
MIDA was established to promote and ensure improved economic, social and political development of urban and rural communities throughout the country of Panama, and to define and implement policies, plans and programs for the agricultural sector.
