Galdos Systems solutions are typically built using one or more core products, all of which are Open Standards-based and compliant, and may optionally include one or more additional tools. Having taken a modular approach to component development, Galdos is able to deploy and configure components to specific customer needs and requirements.
Galdos Systems products can be deployed stand-alone, or can provide a platform for developing customized applications. Galdos products include INdicio™ Web Registry, INscape™ Web Feature Service, and INtune™ SDI Framework.
Galdos software components can be used to quickly and easily create a wide range of server-hosted geospatial information services — from the cloud to mobile and desk top clients. Galdos components can be licenses individually, or in platforms or bundles, the latter applying in particular to the INdicio Registry Service.
Galdos components are all based on Open Standards from the OGC, W3C, ISO and OASIS, including GML, KML, CityGML, WFS, WMS, GMLJP2, RSS/ATOM, and CSW-ebRIM.
Galdos components are particularly effective in the creation of wide area applications and information-sharing solutions including Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI), GIS-Centers, and Urban or regional data warehouses.
Galdos software components are being deployed in a wide range of end use applications including campus mapping, Provincial data and service catalogues, energy exploration, emergency response and security.
INdicio is a Web Registry Service (WRS) that conforms to the OGC Catalogue Services for the Web (CSW) specification. INdicio uses the electronic business registry information model (ebRIM) standards from OASIS to allow complex business models and service offerings to be defined within the WRS. The core functionality offered by INdicio is the ability to find, publish, and bind data and services. It also offers security and authentication services, as well as life-cycle management services.
INdicio is a registry service that makes it fast and easy to deploy a variety of geospatial information solutions. INdicio provides a noSQL geospatial data model that provides high level constructs such as typed objects (e.g. objects with geometry properties), object associations, taxonomies, and collections; this makes it far easier to create and evolve your business information model than working with geo-relational systems. INdicio also provides a glyph-based graphical tool for creating, deploying, and managing information models.
The INdicio web service is supported by components in the business object and client tiers, including components for fast vector tiling, XML parsing, map cache generation, cache synchronization, and map viewing. Client components are provided as software libraries for HTML5 (desktops), and for native application development on iOS and Android platforms.
INscape (formerly known as Cartalinea™) is a Web Feature Service (WFS) that conforms to OGC WFS specifications. INscape supports transactions to implement incremental updates between multiple WFS. INscape’s access control is implemented through Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). INscape was the first WFS to be fully compliant with the OGC WFS 1.0 standard; it supports GML and spatial operators for the OGC Filter standard, and works with Esri’s ArcSDE.
INtune is a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) framework that combines a number of other components to provide the infrastructure to build a peer-to-peer network for data sharing. Schema mapping and GML lie at the core of this capability.
INtune provides a central control and administration utility, and connectors that allow peer systems to communicate with one another. The connectors share data through publications and subscriptions. Local policy decision and enforcement points can be created to meet business needs.
Security frameworks are available at a variety of levels throughout the network and messaging infrastructure. INtune is designed to facilitate data sharing between members in a heterogeneous network of GIS, databases, and data services.
GML INspector™ provides advanced capabilities for working with GML and CityGML data, and for visualizing the data in a variety of different ways, including both exterior and interior viewing. CityGML models tend to contain large volumes of complex data, which make visualization a challenge; GML INspector not only provides effective visualization, but it also has a very small memory footprint even for large CityGML files.
INview is a GML JPEG 2000 viewer with support for custom annotations. INview displays embedded GML Annotations such as points, lines, and areas as overlays on the JPEG 2000 image.
Galdos Systems tools provide additional functionality as needed, and are used in developing specific applications or as part of custom solutions. Galdos tools include IN3d™ Visualization Engine, Arbitron™ Test Harness, the KML Validator™, and the GML SDK™.
