Any*GIS(tm) Will Allow CAD Users to Access Raster Catalog Service from ArcSDE(r)
Westminster, CO - January 4, 2005 - The City of Fontana, California has selected Hitachi Software Global Technology, Ltd. (HSGT) and its Any*GIS solution to integrate and serve spatial data and raster imagery to its Autodesk Map(r) users.
The City of Fontana has recently completed the three-day implementation of the Any*GIS Enterprise Server and Any*GIS CAD Client. When rolled out to the city's thirty GIS and CAD design personnel, the new system will serve spatial data and imagery stored in ArcSDE to Autodesk users.
Current customers of Any*GIS include several of the world's largest electric utilities, telecommunications companies, and local governments. Any*GIS' support for the raster catalog service of ArcSDE will prove essential for companies that need to view imagery within the Autodesk environment.
"Until now, CAD users have had no access to raster imagery stored in ArcSDE. We are very pleased to provide this functionality to The City of Fontana so quickly after their migration to ArcSDE 9," stated Robert Carroll, vice president of sales and marketing at Hitachi, "With this implementation, Any*GIS offers Fontana's designers the ability to combine data and functionality from two of the industry's best software packages."
Built on Open GIS Consortium standards and open systems architecture, Any*GIS is a multi-tiered interoperable framework that integrates multiple GIS data sources. Any*GIS supports spatial data access and updating to OpenGIS(r) Simple Feature Specification data stores in Oracle and SQL Server, as well as proprietary formats from Autodesk, ESRI, Intergraph, MapInfo and GE Power Systems (Smallworld).
Any*GIS was developed using Java 2, so it is highly customizable and can be tailored to meet the needs of any organization that depends on accurate geographic and associated non-spatial data. More information can be found at www.anygis.com.
