Textron’s Overwatch division this week introduced new software at the GEOINT 2012 Symposium designed to allow users in small teams to easily share and manage geospatial data and databases on a shared local network, the company said.
GeoCatalog Workgroup offers database and file management capabilities to add and remove catalogued data, images, shape files and video. It monitors directories for incoming data and provides automated ingesting, the company said. It can also provide email notification for standing queries of requested information, publish point feature data to a shared repository and provide metrics for images received and ingested.
“With this software, an intelligence cell of 10 users can quickly access, share and manage a large number of geospatial image files,” Overwatch Vice President of Geospatial Solutions Skip Maselli said in a statement.
The software will be available for shipment in November.
