1Spatial addresses geospatial data integration issues at Autodesk University 2008

27th November 2008, Cambridge, UK. 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. It takes place on Tuesday 2nd December 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 not only to build data bridges and integrate geospatial data, but also 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.

Graham Stickler, Product and Marketing Director, 1Spatial said:

"With the increase in geospatial data in mainstream business processes across all sectors, the issues of data quality and integration are critical. Autodesk University 2008 is an opportunity for 1Spatial to explain how these issues can be overcome using FDO technology."

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. For more information about the event visit http://au.autodesk.com/event/
