Cadcorp accepted by UK government for GIS as a G-Cloud Service

Cadcorp has won a place on the approved list of suppliers of Software as a Service (SaaS), as part of the government’s G-Cloud iii framework.

The G-Cloud Programme is a cross government initiative with the aim of introducing cloud ICT services into government departments, local authorities and the wider public sector. Acceptance into the CloudStore catalogue qualifies Cadcorp as a supplier of Software as a Service (SaaS) technology. The catalogue is intended to make the process of public sector procurement quicker, easier, cheaper, and more transparent.

The endorsement is for Cadcorp’s off-the-shelf web mapping application, Web Map Layers.

Spanish airport operator Aena rolls out corporate GIS based on Cadcorp technology

Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea (Aena), which handles more passengers than any other airport operator in the world, is using Cadcorp software to manage geographic information about its extensive infrastructure of airports and radio masts.

Any authorised user can now visualise, add and modify cartographic and infrastructural data, from Aena premises that include both airports and radio mast installations.
The application called “SIGNA” by Aena, is the start of a wider GIS project for intranet GIS, first specified by the Aeronautic Information Service (AIS) in Aena in 2009. The project aim was to bring together the range of geographic data built up over the years by Aena into a single web server, in order to serve any user requesting this information.
The application has been developed by Cadcorp partner Recursos Técnicos Madrid, S.L.. (RTM) to Aena’s specifications, and in collaboration with the contractor Topografía y Obras, S.A. (TYOSA). TYOSA was responsible for surveying and field data collection over a three year period. In parallel, RTM working with the staff of Aena, assumed the responsibility for application development. This included designing the software user interface, and maintaining connectivity with a central spatial database “Ingena”. All maps and surveying data held in Ingena can now be accessed through Internet Explorer® over Aena’s intranet.

Taking the special out of spatial

UK IT services company Northgate Information Solutions has decided to standardise on Cadcorp SIS for handling spatial data in its Land and Property, and Public Protection suites of software.

Until now, the company has been maintaining different ‘flavours’ of its spatial component to accommodate the fact that UK local authorities had deployed different GIS systems.  Thanks to the emergence and acceptance of open standards in GIS, and their implementation in Cadcorp SIS, Northgate is now able to  integrate with incumbent GIS using Cadcorp SIS alone.

You can read about the architecture of the Northgate system in an interview with Sue Rice Strategic  Product Manager at Northgate, in the May/June issue of GeoConnexionUK
