City pursues open data, wider use of geospatial solutions


HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Nov. 21, 2012  -- The City of Edmonton, Canada, has selected Intergraph® to provide on-going access to the latest geospatial software and services through a multi-year agreement.  Intergraph's North American Site License gives Edmonton a cost-effective means of expanding the city's enterprise geographic information system (GIS).

Through Intergraph's GeoMedia® Smart Client, Geospatial SDI and other software, Edmonton can grow its use of enterprise data management, data visualization, 3D analyses, cloud computing and mobile technologies.

"In choosing a site license, the City of Edmonton gains access to Intergraph's complete GIS solution," said Rob Patten, Vice President, Intergraph SG&I Canada. "This will help Edmonton further integrate geospatial data into municipal operations, enabling the city to make smarter decisions for planning, assessment, transportation and more."

In addition to providing the city with Intergraph's geospatial software, the site license also gives Edmonton access to a local Intergraph professional services team to aid in planning and implementation. The site license provides a fixed expenditure over the life of the program, leading to cost savings and better financial management.

A leader in enterprise GIS, the city has long promoted open data architectures and the use of geospatial information across departments. The city has been using Intergraph software for more than 10 years to geospatially locate, identify, analyze, track and manage assets. 

Edmonton recently implemented a pilot program using combined products from Intergraph and Leica Geosystems, both Hexagon companies. The effort enables city workers in the field to report back on the condition of assets within the city's expansive public park system.
