PR – ERDAS announces the release of ERDAS TITAN 2009, providing more flexibility in the industry’s most unique online network for sharing data. ERDAS TITAN 2009 supports additional services and provides true interoperability to the leading geospatial solutions, including ERDAS IMAGINE®, ERDAS Image Web Server, ERDAS APOLLO and ArcGIS.
ERDAS TITAN is a permission-based tool for publishing, searching and retrieving geospatial information across organizations and end users. The ERDAS TITAN Network supports users and organizations that want to make their geospatial data available, while retaining digital ownership rights. ERDAS TITAN provides access to unlimited public and private data resources and enables consumption in a variety of desktop, Internet and 3D virtual globe applications. Utilizing an instant messenger, users can communicate and collaborate within the network. ERDAS TITAN participants include individual users as well as government and commercial data providers, GIS data clearinghouses, city/county and state/federal agencies, Defense, national mapping agencies and other organizations.
ERDAS TITAN 2009 extends the TITAN experience into additional geospatial applications, allowing users to browse and load shared data directly within ERDAS IMAGINE and ArcGIS. Already capable of consuming the ECWP produced in ERDAS Image Web Server, ERDAS TITAN now also can transform the ECWP into a WMS. Support has been added for querying a catalog and accessing layers made available as web services in ERDAS APOLLO. Appropriate for a global audience, the ERDAS TITAN Client is now localized for some languages, with a Translator Tool for any language.
“ERDAS TITAN 2009 provides additional support for sharing data with users and communities internal and external to an organization,” said Mladen Stojic, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Marketing, ERDAS. “Seamlessly connecting to ERDAS IMAGINE, ERDAS Image Web Server, ERDAS APOLLO and ArcGIS, ERDAS TITAN combines unique data sharing capabilities with the industry’s most powerful solutions.”
ERDAS TITAN 2009 will be available in the fourth quarter of 2008.
