— July 27, 2009 — ERDAS Inc. announces its participation at the National Association of Counties (NACo) Annual Conference & Exposition, July 24-28, 2009 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN. Exhibiting in booth # 816, ERDAS is showcasing several solutions that can be easily customized to meet a county government’s unique geospatial data management, archiving, processing and delivery needs.
ERDAS recognizes that local governments contain a great deal of geospatial information vital to their operations. This information is also very important to the citizens in the community. Often, local governments operate with minimal resources, requiring their GIS professional to handle multiple roles. Many in local government assume it would be a timely and costly project to share their geospatial assets with the community.
At this conference, ERDAS is highlighting ERDAS Image Web Server and previewing ERDAS IMAGINE 2010, which will be released later this year. ERDAS Image Web Server efficiently distributes massive amounts of geospatial imagery to thousands of users, all on a single server. Solving the infrastructure congestion problems traditionally associated with deploying large amounts of image data, users quickly access the information they need. With ERDAS Image Web Server, individuals may access imagery using CAD, GIS, mobile, web and desktop applications. ERDAS Image Web Server maximizes an organization's existing computer hardware, rapidly delivering an area's geospatial imagery via the Internet.
ERDAS IMAGINE is the industry’s leading and most complete collection of software tools designed to manipulate, process and understand raster and vector data. ERDAS IMAGINE 2010 ties together a heterogeneous set of applications in a simple, easy to use, and easy to learn user interface. ERDAS IMAGINE 2010 also includes the ability to have multiple views, visualize data in different modes; create custom workflows, promoting the development and packaging of specialized workflows; and introduces a shoebox data repository, enabling project teams to quickly share datasets.
“NACo is a very significant event, bringing together key personnel from county governments across the country,” said Dan Bellissemo, US Desktop Solutions Sales Manager, ERDAS. “County governments are very important to ERDAS. It is our goal to fully understand each county’s unique needs, and help them easily, quickly and cost effectively implement a solution that meets these needs.”
NACo is the only national organization representing county governments in the United States. Founded in 1935, NACo provides essential services to the nation’s 3,066 counties. NACo advances issues with a unified voice before the federal government, improving the public's understanding of county government, assisting counties in finding and sharing innovative solutions through education and research, and providing value-added services to save counties and taxpayers money.
