Connecting GIS to the Real World
Geospatial Connect is a server product using Intergraph’s EdgeFrontier functionality to connect the GIS with external systems such as asset management systems, CRM’s and a wide range of sensors. This bi-directional connectivity enables one to capture real-time world events and make them available in spatial databases such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft SQL Spatial Server as well as enabling data actions to be communicated between multiple enterprise systems and the GIS. Once these external data records are brought into the GIS, they are immediately ready for any GeoMedia application such as GeoMedia Desktop, GeoMedia WebMap, or GeoMedia Smart Client to use for analysis, trend prediction, and decision making. Geospatial Connect integration enables GIS users to manage the flow of real-time data by collecting data streams from sensors; processing and analyzing this data in real time to determine the course of action; and finally presenting relevant information to users as a map.
