Sydney-based geospatial solution provider 4DMapper has partnered with Maine firm Blue Marble Geographics to enhance their range of cloud-based hosting and analytics services for spatial data.
4DMapper’s custom applications will leverage Blue Marble GlobalMapper Software Development Kit (SDK) as the engine to power its suite of services, combined with the clout of Amazon Web Services (AWS) for its data-handling. 4DMapper claims that the use of AWS and GlobalMapper’s SDK offers their enterprise customers cloud-based performance comparable to the desktop version of GlobalMapper.
Services available to 4DMapper customers include LiDAR ground point identification and reclassification; DEM creation from a point cloud; custom contour generation; and delineation of ridgelines. Each of these workflows involves the uploading of the relevant source data and results in the creation of a derivative file that can be quickly and easily shared with a customer or client on a web browser.
“We are delighted that 4DMapper has selected the Global Mapper SDK for their AWS data services,” said Patrick Cunningham, Blue Marble President. “Their innovative cloud application represents a perfect example of how Global Mapper technology can be easily integrated into a third party application in the cloud. We are looking forward to seeing what other customers can do with the technology.”
Rob Klau, CEO of 4DMapper added, “The Global Mapper integration is an important step on the path to growing the 4DMapper geospatial ecosystem which we continue to expand, providing more value and utility for our enterprise and professional users.”
