Intergraph GeoSpatial Users Community Program Expands Local User Opportunities for Intergraph’s Australian Customers

Australian users community chapter granted charter

SAN FRANCISCO, April 25, 2005 - GeoSpatial World 2005 - Intergraph Mapping and GeoSpatial Solutions today announced it has chartered its first Australian chapter of the Intergraph GeoSpatial Users Community (IGUC) following a recent successful national users community conference held on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. Joining chapters around the world, including New Zealand, the Australian chapter provides local networking and training opportunities for mapping, IT and geospatial users throughout Australia. New chapter officers are chairperson, Barbara Best, Yarra Valley Water; and secretary, Matthew Smart, Powerlink.

“The chapter will foster a national community of Intergraph users, and we are very excited about its establishment,” said Best. “Being a part of the user group gives us many professional opportunities and advantages. We network and make valuable industry contacts, share application and workflow ideas and provide input into Intergraph’s product direction.”

Through local chapter activities such as education seminars, new product demonstrations and networking events, chapter members can become more skilled on current Intergraph solutions and more knowledgeable about Intergraph’s products as well as interact with peers who share similar interests. Chapter and IGUC-sponsored local users meetings, GeoForums, offer members local education and training focused on a specific discipline or application area along with business and technical information. In addition, the chapter provides a channel for users to communicate with Intergraph technical and product experts on product development initiatives.

IGUC chapters serve to further unite a growing number of users who are implementing Intergraph solutions in local, regional and national government; military and intelligence agencies; the transportation industry; and utilities and communications organizations. These solutions include geospatial infrastructure management, land information management, geospatial intelligence, geospatial data management and cartography.
