Looking to the future of Intergraph – GeoMedia 6.0 Product Suite

It is true that ESRI doesn’t have much competition at this point from the other large GIS companies (Intergraph and MapInfo). I am hoping that GeoMedia 6.0 Product Suite will kick their interface up to the level that their data integration has been at for a while.

New from ESRI, Image Server

Send us your thoughts on AVSP

We now show that the podcast has been downloaded at least 30 times by someone other than me. For those of you coming to download AVSP for the first time or checking out the site after you have listened to the podcast, I encourage you to send us an email at to let us know what you think and what you would like us to cover in the future. We plan to spend the next couple of episodes discussing the technology out there right now and how it is being used everyday as well as in research arenas (ours primarily 🙂 ). We look forward to hearing from you!

The beta is up and Microsoft has NOT caught up to Google. My three largest issues with this are, in no particualr order:

-Pulling B&W imagery
-Vector overlays on imagery are weak…i.e. too transparent
-No API (at least yet)
