Cambridge, UK, 31st March 2011. 1Spatial, provider of intelligent data quality and integration solutions, is delighted to announce that the Federal State Mapping organisation in Baden-Württemberg, Germany have purchased 1Spatial’s flagship Radius Studio solution.
Baden-Württemberg will be using Radius Studio in their TFIS (Special Tourist Map) production workflow. The rules-based technology, at the heart of Radius Studio, will enable previously time-consuming, manual tasks to be automated. This will not only deliver new levels of efficiency within the production workflow, but will also mean that Baden-Württemberg can attain more consistent and high quality map production with regular updates and a ‘mapping on demand’ service to their customers.
Previously, Baden-Württemberg has created products from a series of different data holdings. However, recently migrating all their data holdings to a single, centralised new data model means that all their data maintenance has also been centralised. Radius Studio will be used to match the existing legacy TFIS geometries from the old data model to the newly defined ones in the new model and then transfer attribute references where matches are found so that valuable legacy information is retained.
Sabine Urbanke, Head of the Technical Department, Landesamt für Geoinformation und Landentwicklung
at Baden-Württemberg said:
“We are delighted with the results of the onsite testing of Radius Studio and are looking forward to fully rolling out the solution. We anticipate that by having a number of Baden-Württemberg staff continuously working with Radius Studio that we will be able to identify additional areas where the solution can be implemented, further improving our production and service delivery.”
Martin Gregory, Sales Manager, Data Providers, at 1Spatial added:
“Having worked with 1Spatial technology for nearly 10 years, implementing Radius Studio represents a natural progression of Baden-Württemberg’s architecture for addressing specific and evolving data transformation and product generalisation requirements. In addition, it further strengthens our long-standing relationship where we have worked together to increase automation and improve efficiency in map production workflows.”
