St Petersburg, FL — Geospatial intelligence firm Spatial Networks, Inc. today announced a strategic partnership with Boundless, the leader in open GIS. This new partnership brings unprecedented software and data solutions to government and defense customers worldwide.
Since its founding in 2000, Spatial Networks, Inc. (SNI) has been the preeminent provider of unique and authoritative geospatial data for global business and competitive intelligence applications for Government and Industry. Boundless has built the first, fully open source GIS ecosystem, powering the spatial data infrastructure of hundreds of government and commercial clients. The Boundless platform is built upon open source technology and open APIs that generate actionable location intelligence across third-party apps, content services and plugins for enterprise applications.
This modern approach of combining accessible open source technology and support with commercial data gives customers longer-term return on investments in both areas. Many organizations require a foundational layer of data, analytics and apps to make more effective business decisions. SNI and Boundless are delivering an unprecedented capability to quickly support users locked into proprietary software architectures with limited abilities to connect to 3rd party data sources.
“This new partnership not only arms government and defense customers with unparalleled technology, products, and support, but also provides users with a rich content catalog organizations need to gain deeper intelligence and insights using location-based data,” said Andy Dearing, CEO of Boundless. “We are excited about this partnership and all the capabilities that will be delivered to government agencies, now and in the future.”
Spatial Networks and Boundless currently have several joint customers in the government sector, and this partnership streamlines the accessibility of SNI’s rich content for use across Boundless’ powerful server and desktop GIS management and analysis tools. The SNI and Boundless teams will be at the GEOINT Symposium (Booth #’s 731 & 961) June 3-6 to highlight this partnership.
