Jan 21, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Intergraph Corporation, a provider of engineering and geospatial software, has announced the release of ERDAS APOLLO 2013, a data management, analysis and delivery system, as part of Intergraph Geospatial Portfolio 2013.
ERDAS APOLLO 2013 allows organizations to catalog, search, discover, process, and disseminate file-based and web-enabled data. For customers with constantly updating data stores, ERDAS APOLLO now provides the ability to set up a drop box, enabling an organization to immediately catalog and publish incoming data, the company said.
According to the company, with virtual mosaicking, an organization can group datasets together, limit by scale, and portray potentially thousands of datasets as a single virtual mosaic layer. In addition, ERDAS APOLLO 2013 debuts a ready-to-run, integrated web client. The Geospatial Portal provides customers with the same functionality and connectivity to the server that they had before, plus more useful and standards-compliant features.
ERDAS APOLLO 2013 is available in three product tiers - ERDAS APOLLO Essentials; ERDAS APOLLO Advantage; and ERDAS APOLLO Professional. ERDAS APOLLO Essentials provides fast image delivery. It uses a variety of protocols, including the ultra-high-performance ECWP, and is delivered with a preconfigured thin client.
Including all the functionality of ERDAS APOLLO Essentials, ERDAS APOLLO Advantage enables users to catalog and share geospatial and non-spatial data located throughout their enterprise. Offering all the functionality of ERDAS APOLLO Advantage ERDAS APOLLO Professional also provides server-side geoprocessing of data from thin clients.
ERDAS APOLLO Essentials can now run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux v5.8 and v6.2+ as well as Windows, and enables watermarking of imagery so that data providers can protect their intellectual property rights for the data. ERDAS APOLLO Advantage now offers OpenStreetMap in the Data Manager, making it easier to see the global context of data and its location. This release also provides the ability to monitor incoming data via GeoRSS, so that data analysts can use GeoRSS links to monitor the incoming data for specific points or areas of interest, using the web client, the company added.
In ERDAS APOLLO Professional, the server-side geoprocessing (WPS) feature has integrated the new and improved ERDAS IMAGINE Spatial Modeler, providing as many of the basic building blocks a user might require for finding solutions to their own problems. Also, geospatial organizations who are collecting LIDAR data can now enable Clip, Zip and Ship for LAS-formatted point cloud data (in whole or just a subset), enabled through the integrated web client.
"With all of the challenges organizations face with 'Big Data,' enhanced geospatial data management solutions are required to find, describe, manage and deliver geospatial data to power smarter decisions" said Mladen Stojic, vice president - Geospatial, Intergraph. "ERDAS APOLLO 2013 offers new and dynamic ways for managing large volumes of data in ways that make it truly timely, relevant and actionable."
