ERDAS Announces a Free Webinar—Broadcasting Your Local Government

Norcross, GA – ERDAS announces Broadcasting Your Local Government, a free webinar on December 16, 2008 at 11 a.m. EST. Seth Dailey from the City of Columbia, South Carolina will be discussing their web mapping solution, along with the ERDAS Image Web Server Product Manager.

Local governments contain a great deal of geospatial information that is vital to their operations. This information is also very important to the citizens in the community. Many local governments often operate with minimal resources, requiring their GIS professional to handle multiple roles. Many in local government assume it would be a timely and costly project to share their geospatial assets with the community.

ERDAS Image Web Server maximizes an organization’s existing computer hardware, rapidly delivering an area’s geospatial imagery via the Internet. Because the area of interest is relatively small, a local government’s geospatial information tends to be carefully maintained. This webinar explores the implementation of ERDAS Image Web Server on the local government level and highlights the different types of individuals and businesses that can benefit from this service to a community.

Each month, ERDAS is offering at least two different webinar topics. In addition to a live presentation and demonstration, each webinar also includes the opportunity for customers to interact directly with the presenters. Scheduled to last forty-five minutes, each webinar will include approximately thirty minutes of presented material and fifteen minutes for Q&A.
