Bespoke project will help improve interoperability across US Army organisations and Coalition partners
The US Army Geospatial Center (AGC) has deployed a new Portrayal Registry developed by Envitia, which will improve interoperability across the Army Geospatial Enterprise and Coalition partners.
Envitia rapidly developed and deployed its Portrayal Registry for the AGC, that can manage and share standardized mapping elements as a central service.
The technology enables military units to share common symbology and mapping elements so each user views the same information, but in a view that works for them.
“The Portrayal Registry implements next-generation Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) APIs and provides the potential for enterprise users to share map styles and symbols more efficiently,” said Jeff Harrison, project manager for the Portrayal Registry with AGC’s Systems and Acquisition Support Directorate, Enterprise Support Branch.
“We are proud to deliver this initial Portrayal Registry capability for the U.S. Army Geospatial Center,” said Envitia CEO Nabil Lodey. “This innovation project for the AGC leverages our leading software products. It offers the potential to save significant time and costs when developing next-generations maps and system displays.”
This project is part of wider efforts to ensure front line troops can rely on consistent geospatial information for critical decision-making.
“We are looking forward to a continued partnership with the US Army and its Geospatial Center,” added Lodey.
