Actian Taps Growth in Location-Based Data with Geospatial Release
Actian Corporation’s Ingres 10S is Now an All-In-One Spatial and Relational Database
“We are collecting more spatial data on a more frequent basis, such as addresses, geocodes and co-ordinates,”
Ingres 10S includes read/write support to leading GIS software packages, such as Esri’s ArcGIS for Desktop. MapServer and GeoServer support make it easy to share data and enable web mapping, and Ingres 10S offers unlimited data import flexibility using the leading spatial ETL tool, Safe Software’s Feature Manipulation Engine (FME).
“At Safe Software, our focus is on ensuring that spatial data can be used and shared – regardless of the tool it originates from or the system it needs to be used in,” says Dale Lutz, vice president of development and co-founder at Safe Software. “We are pleased to extend FME’s powerful spatial data transformation capabilities to Ingres database users to help them overcome the challenges they may face with using and sharing spatial data.”
Ingres 10S is an all-in-one spatial and relational database and does not require additional add-ons to access its geospatial functionality. Ingres 10S is supported by other programming libraries, including GDAL/OGR and GeoTools, allowing additional applications to import, export and manipulate vector data. Ingres 10S leverages the GEOS geometry and PROJ cartographic projection libraries for manipulating and transforming spatial data between dozens of geographic and planar co-ordinate systems.
“I am excited to see spatial functionality added to the Ingres product, as this is very important for modern location awareness and mobile applications,”
“Ingres 10S enables businesses to become more sophisticated with their spatial data,” says Mr. Mitchell. “For example, delivery vehicles could dynamically alter their route based on changing traffic conditions, and construction companies can provide equipment from the nearest location instead of always sourcing it from a central store. Companies are looking to extract more value out of their growing spatial data, and Actian wants to add more value to customers by making it easier to interact with both spatial and relational data. Ingres 10S offers a complete spatial and relational database solution that is highly affordable, and includes worldwide mission-critical 24x7 support.”
The announcement was made ahead of Actian’s webinar on Ingres 10S taking place on May 3rd at 8:00 a.m. PT.
