1Spatial on Geospatial Data Integration - 27/11/2008


1Spatial is presenting a session in the Geospatial track at Autodesk University 2008 to highlight the geospatial data integration issues faced by organisations across the World today. The class, entitled ‘The Use of Autodesk FDO Data Access Technology in enabling CAD/GIS Convergence', will be presented by 1Spatial's Product and Marketing Director, Graham Stickler and Managing Consultant, Crispin Hoult.

 

The Autodesk University takes place on Tuesday 2nd December 2008 at 8:00am, as part of the 5-day Autodesk event being held from 1st to 5th December in Las Vegas (USA). 

Aimed at users interested in learning about the value of integrating geospatial data and CAD, the session will explore the practical use of Feature Data Object (FDO) Open Source software. It can be used as a means to build data bridges and integrate geospatial data, as well as to facilitate the convergence of CAD and GIS data sources.

Vast amounts of geospatially-based data are available across organisations globally in both GIS and CAD, which represent a huge investment by their custodians. This situation is compounded by increasingly large flows of geospatial data appearing, as well as the advent of more advanced data collection techniques. Merging and sharing such datasets has become paramount with the realisation that real business value can be drawn through the reuse of this data. The rise in Web access is also resulting in an even greater demand to make these data available externally and also highlights the need for data integration. The class will address how Open Source Feature Data Object Data Access Technology enables the access and analysis of multiple native data formats without translation or duplication.

 

The presentation is taking place at the Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas in room Delfino 4002 on Tuesday 2nd December 2008 between 8:00am - 9:30 am.
