Flexible And Dynamic GIS Management

Maps present data visually, allowing you to visualise location and gain other information from your data. Making the information-gathering process easier—making a good map—requires powerful analytical tools and clear symbolization. Whether updating land and tax records, analysing traffic flow and accidents, or determining the best locations for evacuation centres, GeoMedia combines tabular and geographic data to produce actionable information.

GeoMedia is a powerful, flexible GIS management platform that lets you aggregate data from a variety of sources and analyse them in unison to extract clear, actionable information. It provides simultaneous access to geospatial data in almost any form and displays it in a single unified map view for efficient processing, analysis, presentation, and sharing. GeoMedia’s functionality makes it ideal for extracting information from an array of dynamically changing data to support informed, smarter decision-making.

Superior Data Access

GeoMedia gives you the freedom to spend less time trying to connect to your data so you can focus on what you want to achieve with it. GeoMedia is a leading GIS choice among users who want to connect directly to the spatially enabled databases they already use—such as Oracle, SQL Server, and PostGIS—without using importers or converters.

Additionally, GeoMedia can access many common geospatial file formats, most computer-aided design (CAD) formats (MicroStation and AutoCAD), Esri’s ArcView and File GeoDatabase, OGC GeoPackage, KML, simple text files, and OGC web services such as WMS, WMTS, and WFS. GeoMedia also includes an ERDAS APOLLO catalogue explorer to spatially search, find, and display image data directly in the map window

Data Visualisation And Quality Assurance

GeoMedia provides smart feature modelling capabilities that recognize the relationships between features that represent real-world objects in a network, such as sewer, water, electric, or gas assets. By recognising those relationships during the editing process, GeoMedia increases operator productivity and helps ensure that edits are consistent with real-world business rules, so the network is always represented correctly within your GIS. It also provides temporal query and visualisation capabilities that let you pinpoint network changes that have occurred over time and analyse the possible causes and real-world implications.

Sophisticated, Dynamic Analysis

GeoMedia gives you the power to perform sophisticated analysis to extract information from data stored in multiple databases on different platforms and a variety of different files, all at once. It also enables you to create queries of unlimited intricacy, creating and concatenating queries together so that the results of one query feed into another query dynamically. As the data changes, GeoMedia updates the results for you automatically, giving you a living picture of the real-life situations portrayed by your data. This capability can also be used to conduct powerful “what-if” analyses for strategic planning. While competing GIS platforms may allow the same type of analytical concatenation as GeoMedia, they may also rely on the creation of intermediate files to accomplish the same result. 

Enterprise Productivity

Productivity and accuracy are essential aspects of vector feature capture and editing for enterprise geospatial databases. GeoMedia provides focused functionality for the creation, manipulation, and maintenance of geospatial information. It supports the essential, day-today operations required to maintain map information. GeoMedia makes it easy for organisations with lots of users to work with data productively. You can easily share geospatial content inside a department or enterprise. If your department has standards for styling, text properties, or structured analysis and queries, a supervisor can ensure consistency throughout the group by specifying those standards and queries, centralising them, and sharing them.
