IGN Selects Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging’s RedSpider Catalog 3.0

  • Rating12345

PR — The French National Geographic Institute (IGN) has selected Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging’s RedSpider Catalog 3.0 to build and maintain a catalog of geospatial resources. With this catalog, the IGN will fully handle visualization requests made by end-users through the Gé

RedSpider Catalog provides a robust and secure solution meeting IGN’s in-house cataloguing needs, with the ability to feed the Gé with interoperable geospatial resources. In addition, the solution’s Open Geospatial Consortium and International Organization of Standardization (OGC/ISO) compliance, including catalog services (CS-W) and access and visualization services (WMS), equips IGN to fulfill their geospatial digital broadcast strategy. The OGC/ISO compliance enables IGN to provide Gé partners with strong interoperability and performances meeting national spatial data infrastructure (SDI) requirements. In addition, RedSpider Catalog is equipped for the European INSPIRE directive on SDIs.

Ultimately, ATOS Worldline will integrate and deploy RedSpider Catalog for IGN, supporting the complete metadata architecture of IGN’s national products. The solution’s architecture addresses all aspects of the geospatial value chain: from the dataset or product level, to gathering coverage for the territories, to providing and conforming to Gé’s access services.

“RedSpider Catalog enables IGN to efficiently register their massive resources into the national geographic portal, ensuring accessibility to all citizens”, said Vincent Dessard, Senior Vice President Business Development, Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging. “Leica Geosystems is proud to partner with IGN in another successful, business-critical cataloguing project.”
