Today, we are highlighting news from Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I), who has been awarded a contract from the Norwegian Armed Forces to produce unclassified topographical maps.
According a recent press release, the maps will cover different regions of the world, and will be based on high-resolution vector data produced through the Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP).The Norwegian Armed Forces is responsible for the defense of Norway. Consisting of five branches — the Norwegian Army, the Royal Norwegian Navy, the Royal Norwegian Air Force, the Home Guard and the Cyber Force – the armed forces has 23,000 personnel, including civilian employees, and have a full-mobilization combat strength of 83,000.
Intergraph will use Hexagon Geospatial software for the cartographic solution.
Through this new contract, the Norwegian Armed Forces will be able to enhance overall mission effectiveness by leveraging the right geographic data and information. In addition, we look forward to working with our partners at Intergraph to help bring the power of geospatial data to Norway’s defense efforts.
