Boundless Open-Source Geospatial Technology For Harris


[Satnews] Harris Corporation has expanded a collaboration with Boundless to further extend its capabilities in open-source geospatial technology.

This partnership makes it easier and more cost-effective for customers to access, manage and share the huge amount of location-based data available from devices, sensors and satellites, the companies said.

Most recently, Harris has developed a geospatial data warehouse called One Object One Time (1O1T), which eliminates redundant data and stores the most current representation of geospatial objects such as a lighthouse or communications tower. This capability ensures data currency and significantly reduces the time required for processing and delivering content and products compared with traditional methods. Harris is using 1O1T to provide content management services and create high-quality data and products for use by a wide variety of government and commercial customers.

Boundless’ OpenGeo Suite is an open-source enterprise geospatial software bundle. It expands Harris’ existing offerings like 1O1T. Boundless experts support and consult around the implementation of OpenGeo Suite components including GeoServer, PostGIS, Open Layers and QGIS.
