Our mission is to provide customers with fast, reliable and up-to-date geospatial information for a wide range of property transaction and land use needs
Huntsville, AL (PRWEB) April 21, 2009
The Netherlands' Kadaster Land Registry and Mapping Agency (Kadaster), an independent public body responsible for cadastre, land registration and mapping in the Netherlands, and an internationally renowned leader in land administration, has awarded Intergraph® with its supplier of the year honor for 2008. At its annual supplier meeting in March 2009, Kadaster recognized Intergraph, the leading global provider of engineering and geospatial software, for its flexibility to comply with ever-changing project requirements, strong support and strategic added value to the organization's success.
Kadaster has been working with Intergraph since 2006 using its GeoMedia® and TerraShare® product portfolios to gather, store and display large quantities of geospatial data and aerial, satellite and other imagery. The role of the organization is to collect data on registered properties in the Netherlands and beyond, record the data in public registers and cadastral maps and make the information available to businesses, government officials and the public. Kadaster responds to more than 20 million requests for information each year. The Netherlands' National Mapping Agency, which produces geographical maps of the Netherlands at various scales, also forms part of the organization.
"Our mission is to provide customers with fast, reliable and up-to-date geospatial information for a wide range of property transaction and land use needs," said Tom Dijkstra, director of services with Kadaster. "Due to the massive volume of requests we receive for such information, our success would not be possible without the powerful, flexible solutions and support from Intergraph. Based on its innovative, open product platform and experienced, dedicated professionals, we have selected Intergraph as a long-term partner in serving our customers' needs and continually expanding our capabilities and leadership in this field."
Beyond managing the complex land administration procedures of the Netherlands, Kadaster contributes to fighting poverty in other areas of the world. Registration of land ownership is an important facet of economic growth in developing nations. Kadaster has taken on this social responsibility by participating in more than 50 international land administration projects in countries around the globe where land registration is still a relatively new concept. Intergraph's geospatial technology has been part of Kadaster's international development initiatives, providing a versatile, open platform for fusing data from many different sources to create a complete picture.
"Kadaster offers a critical service to many nations around the world, helping them to grow their economies and fight poverty," said Grzegorz Wisniewski, regional vice president for Intergraph. "The organization's trust in Intergraph to support this endeavor serves as a testament to both our unwavering dedication to customer success and the strength of our technology in helping government agencies easily store and share geospatial data. We are honored to be awarded supplier of the year for 2008 by such a prestigious organization."
Intergraph technology will be on display at Booth 211 during GITA's Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference & Exhibition in Tampa, FL, from April 20-22, 2009.
