Software solution enables users to create, edit, and visualize Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data natively in a Google Earth(TM) environment.


MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 8, 2012  --Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) [NYSE: SAI] today announced the release of the GRGlobe(TM) application, a new commercial software solution to create, edit, and visualize Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data natively in a Google Earth(TM) environment. GRGlobe enables the visualization of spatial data by structuring it into organized layers and overlaying the feature data on a Google Earth globe. GRGlobe provides structure to data to enable GIS functionality for use in government, defense, emergency response, law enforcement, energy, environmental, utility, education, land management, forestry, and other applications.

Many of the unique GIS workflows have been available for years in the SAIC GeoRover software tools. SAIC has re-factored these tools into GRGlobe to offer the same capability in the popular Google Earth environment, providing users with simple tools to generate timely, accurate and relevant geospatial information. These tools support common coordinate formats, enable users to easily import from coordinates to visualize this information, and create products from layers and attribute data into popular briefing and GIS formats.

Key benefits of using GRGlobe include:


  • Provides key functionality for adding and importing data from popular GIS and document formats, facilitating data interoperability.
  • Allows users to easily query and search data.
  • Enables data to be categorized logically in a table of contents using attributes and symbology, allowing users to efficiently query and visualize data.
  • Delivers enhanced GIS capabilities by bringing the techniques and tools of structured GIS data and workflows to the Google Earth environment.
  • Saves time and creates added efficiency.

"The GRGlobe application brings enhanced techniques for managing and interacting with GIS data to the Google Earth environment," said John Thomas, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. "We look forward to continuing to make GIS easier for novice users, but also provide a very productive and efficient interface for experienced users to manage, analyze, display, and disseminate geospatial information with popular software tools to solve difficult customer problems."
