ERDAS ADE Remote provides rich, secure and flexible spatial and operational management for field force operations that require the capture and maintenance of location and business data. Users can manage data locally (files on disk), connect directly to Oracle, or connect to ERDAS ADE Enterprise.

Providing connected and disconnected users with a common software platform, ERDAS ADE Mobile offers versatility and flexibility for data collection and validation requirements. ERDAS ADE Mobile is a powerful spatial editor for any Windows Mobile GPS or hand-held device.

ERDAS ADE Enterprise provides the ability to scale in a web based environment as well as real-time spatial data editing.

In ERDAS ADE 2010, there is now WMS support, as well as new viewer manipulation tools to swipe all rasters or vectors in the view to see underlying data. The offline file storage system has been improved to allow more data to be taken into the field. Support for targeted updates and improved conflict resolution tools give users greater control, should problems arise from multiple users editing the same data. This release also introduces a new implementation of the ERDAS ADE Mobile product with better memory management, performance, user experience and the ability to edit Shapefiles.
