Ottawa, Canada, Wednesday, May 12, 2010 – The 4D-iQ Spatial Solutions division of Ambercore, the 4D company, is pleased to announce that its Ecosphere iQ environmental industry solution has been delivered to the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Environment and Conservation. The organization plans to use the solution to manage their large high resolution spatial data sets, including laser scanning (LiDAR) data for a range of environmental applications. Ecosphere iQ can integrate, visualize and process many different types of spatial data together, including high resolution LiDAR data, on a province wide scale. This makes it easier when conducting provincial environmental projects at a very detailed level.
As with all of Ambercore’s software products, Ecosphere iQ allows clients to load, view and browse large high resolution data in 3D, integrate this data with additional spatial data from other systems in the organization, derive and extract information from the data, and share and disseminate the results within the organization. At the core of Ecosphere iQ is the 4D-iQ Engine, which efficiently handles large, high resolution LiDAR data sets having tens of billions of points, and large imagery data, Gigabytes in size. It can then display point clouds containing billions of LiDAR data points, bare earth digital terrain models, and full feature digital elevation models – all in 3D.
“We are confident that our technology’s ability to handle high resolution LiDAR data on a provincial scale will be a great asset to the environmental projects in Newfoundland,” says Ted Reeler, Director of Projects & Technology for Ambercore.
