Intergraph and its customer, Ordnance Survey of Great Britain, were honored with a prestigious award for excellence in innovation at the Elan Conferences Information Management 2005 Awards Ceremony in London. The pair was commended in the Content Management category for its implementation of an Intergraph Z/I Imaging DMC (Digital Mapping Camera) and TerraShare image management solution used in the production of Ordnance Survey’s OS MasterMap digital map data.
Intergraph was named as Ordnance Survey’s Premier Partner in the implementation, which was recognized for its technical innovation in delivering a digital workflow that enables imagery captured with a precision digital camera to be processed and stored in an integrated geospatial environment. The solution allows personnel to manage and distribute associated photogrammetric information, such as imagery metadata, flight planning data, and ground control information, to end users. This capability increases the quality of collected information and enhances efficiency by reducing the amount of time from image acquisition to data extraction.
“Implementing Intergraph’s DMC has significantly boosted our photogrammetric productivity, increasing the quality of collected information and enhancing efficiency by reducing the amount of time taken from image acquisition to data extraction,” said Vanessa Lawrence, Director General and Chief Executive, Ordnance Survey. “This award reflects the increasingly important role location is playing in society and the growing reach of geographic information.”
Gadi BenMark, General Manager, Intergraph Transportation & Photogrammetry, said, “This award reinforces Intergraph’s commitment to excellence and ensuring customer success. Intergraph has a long history of partnering with customers to deliver some of the industry’s most innovative and comprehensive photogrammetric solutions available.”
