While Intergraph has largely focused their efforts on creating solutions, they are still working to update their platform technology. I visited with the company yesterday at GITA and learned that they’re set to release a new version of GeoMedia that includes 3D capabilities at their user conference, which takes place in Nashville, TN from June 14-17.
Another compelling visualization capability is their Motion Video Exploitation that takes full-motion video captured by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and allows analysts to add clipmarks and annotations, image enhancement, and integrates with multiple geo-referenced sources. This capability is a military application, but it is being explored for such applications as pipeline integrity analysis and for mapping utility corridors.
On the electric utility side, the company has partnered with Siemens to offer a Smart Grid command and control center. The alliance is part of the company’s Utilities and Communications business, but the underpinnings are based on the company’s public safety solutions that offer a common operating picture and situational awareness for real-time management of the electric grid.
