Norwegian Defence as a Platform (DaaP) Extends ERDAS APOLLO to Deliver Geographical Core Service
Conducting operations in the future will be grow to be more centered on information. This includes being in command of, having access to or denial of information. DaaP is fundamental to achieving a joint force vision of an information-enabled armed forces, capable of meeting the challenges of warfare in the information age. Within defense organizations, the current model is characterized by multiple stovepipe systems with duplicative components delivered by multiple providers, which increases cost due to fragmented architecture and no core common infrastructure. The DaaP concept will provide a shared set of common components and infrastructure across a defense organization; supporting all end user services, increasing operational effectiveness, saving money and creating a positive user experience. The Norwegian Defence were early to recognize the benefits of DaaP and understood geographical services to be paramount. In 2010, T-Kartor were awarded the contract to build the first of eight sub projects for Geographical Services. Utilizing ERDAS APOLLO, which supports relevant ISO, OGC and W3C standards, T-Kartor developed additional workflow-driven functionality including an advanced data registration system, complex multi-level network security, extensible metadata, extended discovery options, data assurance through a traffic light system, Meteorological and Oceanographic (METOC) functionality and a connection to other enterprise systems (e.g. SAP). The solution has been successfully tested, delivered and installed and will form an integral part of Norwegian Defence as a Platform (DaaP), facilitating increased collaboration with NATO allies.
Oblique Imagery Viewing Integrated with Image Processing Workflows
During image processing workflows using ERDAS IMAGINE, the ability to view oblique imagery in conjunction with nadir imagery or point cloud data enhances analytical results and enables validation from an additional perspective. For example, feature extraction or change detection results can be quickly validated by having obliques available. Having access to obliques during change detection maximizes the number of valid property changes detected, and thus minimizes unnecessary field visits. Sanborn has integrated their Oblique Analyst® with ERDAS IMAGINE such that oblique imagery is co-registered and immediately available for viewing. Come learn about this exciting new integration between Sanborn’s Oblique Analyst® and ERDAS IMAGINE.
Enterprise GIS for Södertörn – Large Scale Municipal Collaboration
Norconsult Informationssystemer (NoIS) is a subsidiary of Norconsult, the largest and one of the leading multidisciplinary consultancy firms in the Nordic region. NoIS has a long lasting history as a Hexagon Geospatial partner and has one of the largest GeoMedia certified development teams outside Huntsville. An OEM agreement for GeoMedia products has made it possible for us to build localized versions of GeoMedia. We have achieved a market share of about 30% in Norway and 12% in Sweden over a period of 15 years. We are now engaged in product development and delivery of a new Enterprise GIS for eight municipalities in Sweden, called the Södertörn cooperation. The delivery includes a solution for data versioning in standard GeoMedia warehouses and workflow management for surveying, base mapping and cadaster management. The project also includes data migration of feature models from eight different GIS into one common enterprise data model. Join us in this session as we demonstrate the data modelling process and demo the enterprise GIS that supports a complete workflow from surveying to feature editing, to locking and update of the versioned dataset.
Real-World Applications of GeoMedia Analysis
GeoMedia includes a wide array of powerful analytic tools for applications ranging from road widening to assist in determining costs and impacts to hotspot detection to assist in the prediction of where problems may arise. In this course a set of these workflows will be demonstrated using GeoMedia that include both vector analysis and raster analysis. The vector analysis tools used in this session are available in all tiers, where the raster analysis tools are only available at the GeoMedia Advantage and GeoMedia Professional tiers.
Expand the Power of Your Spatial Models with GeoMedia

Maximizing Communication in Emergency Management
In the petrochemical world, accidental releases of chemicals can cause serious health issues as well as major damage to the environment. It is critical that response agencies get real-time, accurate, and actionable information that can be used to implement measures to protect lives and save property. Emerge Systems offers emergency notification applications using GeoMedia WebMap and GeoMedia Desktop that provide emergency managers two components critical to providing effective communication. First, based on information provided from the stricken facility, we provide a targeted geographic notification area. Secondly, we’ve integrated the public notification systems including automated phone calling, electronic roadside signs, and sirens into a single source for activation. In today’s litigious society, targeted effective communication minimizes the risk to industry and allows emergency managers to maximize the effectiveness of their communication resources.
Fully Automated Mapping of Natural Forest Development Phases from LiDAR data for Habitat Monitoring
In Europe, there is an initiative to establish a transnational network of nature reserves focusing on species conservation. Natural forests – that is, forests not intended for economic use – are a keystone for designating such areas. Developed for a state forest department in Germany, a fully automated workflow for mapping forest development phases from LiDAR data was built using the IMAGINE Spatial Modeler. This powerful component of ERDAS IMAGINE solves geoprocessing challenges in the most efficient way—by removing the traditional dialog-driven workflow and instead streamlining a customized, repeatable means of getting the answer. The highly sophisticated model developed for the state forest department processes both raster and vector data, to ultimately provide objective and ready-to-use maps for decision makers. Join us in this session to learn about this powerful workflow, and see its transition into a Hexagon Smart M.App.
Smarter Change Detection with ERDAS IMAGINE
Change makes geospatial data out-of-date almost as fast as the data can be collected. Property appraisers, forestry workers, and the defense industry all rely on timely and accurate identification of change. This session will teach you the basics of change detection and introduce you to ERDAS IMAGINE’s semi-automated zonal (area) change detection. Learn via hands-on training how this unique technique processes change on an area by area (zones) basis, how to prioritize the likelihood of change, and how to complete the final review process in record time.
