Las Vegas, Nevada, June 16, 2017 – Hexagon Geospatial partner Planetek Italia is using the power of the Hexagon Smart M.App to build and deploy Rheticus®, a cloud-based platform that delivers automatic geo-information services, designed to provide accurate data and up-to-date information about our changing world.

Based on M.App Enterprise from Hexagon Geospatial, the Rheticus geoinformation service uses a series of industry-focused Hexagon Smart M.Apps to deliver timely and accurate information to professionals and decision makers for their operations. Whether monitoring vertical displacement on the ground to identify potential problems in water and sewage pipelines or keeping track of coastal seawater quality, the Smart M.Apps delivered by Rheticus provide industry-focused answers and present information in a visual and compelling way.

“We are excited to cooperate with our international partners of Hexagon Geospatial,” said Massimo Zotti, Head of Government & Security SBU at Planetek Italia. “Through the integration of Hexagon Smart M.Apps and the Rheticus monitoring services, we can offer insightful analytics and dynamic maps to users worldwide.”

When seeking the ideal way to distribute and deploy these game-changing Smart M.Apps, Planetek chose M.App Enterprise. Part of the Smart M.App ecosystem, M.App Enterprise provides an on-premises platform for creating and deploying Smart M.Apps. It combines the power of geospatial analytics, workflows, rich web and mobile clients with a state-of-the-art user interface. These targeted, lightweight, and dynamic apps provide answers and actionable information to users.

“Our partner Planetek has made innovative use of the Hexagon Smart M.App platform,” said Hexagon Geospatial President Mladen Stojic. “By utilizing the M.App Enterprise platform to build their Smart M.Apps, connecting them to a steady data source, and delivering them via the cloud, they have begun to create truly dynamic information services. I look forward to seeing the expanding catalog of services they create on the M.App Enterprise platform.”

The Rheticus geoinformation service and the Network Alert Smart M.App will be featured in the Continuous Monitoring of Ground Surface Displacement and Infrastructures with Satellite Imagery breakout session presented by Massimo Zotti at HxGN LIVE in Las Vegas on June 14, 2017.
