GIS

  • FME – From Safe Software of Surrey, British Columbia, Canada comes the Feature Manipulation Engine, an ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) tool with extensive geodata transformation and formattranslation capabilities. It includes what is essentially a graphical programming language for the efficient automation of arbitrarily complex GIS workflows.  We have Certified FME® Professionals on staff.
  • PostGIS – The powerful official spatial extension to the open source PostgreSQL database engine. It offers enterprise-class performance and capabilities, and is supported by most major cloudinfrastructure service providers.
  • GEOS – The geometry computation engine underneath PostgreSQL can also be used independently by applications where appropriate. It is a continuously-maintained-and-updated port of the popular Java Topology Suite library.
  • ElasticSearch – A no-SQL database engine optimized for powerful and efficient full-text search of its contents. A typical use case is selection of spatial reference (coordinate) systems based on their full descriptive text.
