1Spatial Launches 1Edit Spatial Data Editing Solution

May 22, 2013  - By 0 Comments

1Spatial has launched 1Edit, a touchscreen compatible solution that offers fast and intuitive data-editing in the field or office, 1Spatial said.

Trialed by Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi), 1Edit incorporates a touchscreen for capture and editing of real-world data, making it a breakthrough for data collection in the field via touchscreen, stylus and survey devices, 1Spatial said. It can also be used in an office environment with mouse and keyboard. 1Edit’s “in the field” capabilities will benefit spatial data providers and industries such as utilities, transport, environment and government, the company said.

“Ordnance Survey Ireland has been trialling 1Edit as a tool for maintenance of our PRIME2 product database,” said Lorraine McNerney, Spatial Data and Infrastructure Manager, Ordnance Survey Ireland. “PRIME2 is the OSi real-world feature database that ensures Ireland has accurate and up-to-date spatial datasets supporting improved government service delivery and economic development in Ireland. The facility for users to interact with 1Edit using a portable device touch screen with a stylus or as a desktop with a mouse, and the integration it provides with our existing survey equipment means that our surveyors out in the field and staff who are office based can utilise the same innovative tool for optimal efficiency. This means that we will be able to provide more accurate and up-to-date data to our customers more frequently.”

1Edit provides fast and accurate topological editing to keep data connected, 1Spatial said. It allows change-only saving of data and supports rich real-world hierarchical data models, as well as intelligent management of inter-feature references.  1Edit is currently available on Windows 8 with other operating systems to follow.

“We are delighted to launch 1Edit, which offers a powerful, fast and accurate tool to effectively manage real-world data,” said Marcus Hanke, CEO, 1Spatial. “1Edit maximises data output, because the touch screen capability means that whether organisations are using 1Edit on location or in the office, they will be able to use the same tool to edit information quickly and easily, saving them time and money on data capture. Organizations can also use aerial imagery or survey devices to ensure the quality and accuracy of the data they create and manage.”
