Huntsville, Ala., March 5, 2014”GeoCue Corporation is pleased to announce that the COWI Group, headquartered in Denmark, has selected the GeoCue workflow management suite to manage its LIDAR data production operations. The GeoCue software suite is a robust enterprise solution for organizations needing to improve workflow efficiency across large volume, multi-project geospatial data production environments.
As one of the leading mapping companies in the world, offering services in surveying, mapping, GIS, 3D city modelling and land registry, COWI is ideally suited to leverage the GeoCue framework to improve its overall efficiency. As part of their commitment to deploying state-of-the-art technology, COWI provides airborne LIDAR data collection and processing services using the Leica ALS LIDAR family of instruments for both corridor and wide area mapping projects. Engaged on some of the largest LIDAR data collection programs in the world, including the 450,000 sq. km Swedish National Height Model program, COWI is committed to implementing and maintaining a robust enterprise workflow management system for this important business. Understanding the critical importance continuous monitoring of work-in-progress plays in understanding bottlenecks and improving production throughput, COWI conducted an extended evaluation of GeoCue covering all aspects of GeoCue's workflow enforcement, data file management, project tracking and status reporting tools. In addition, COWI analyzed overall throughput improvements and efficiency gains available by moving certain processing steps to desktop distributed processing via GeoCue's built-in Command Dispatch System.
Benchmarking GeoCue against its current production management tools demonstrated a significant positive Return on Investment for the software suite and convinced COWI that GeoCue was the workflow solution they were looking for. In addition to the immediate gains available from the off-the-shelf GeoCue framework, COWI will be able to customize and extend GeoCue to other areas of production as necessary and will be able to leverage the integration of the full Leica ALS LIDAR workflow in GeoCue via the upcoming release of CloudPro for GeoCue.
