MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Science Applications International
Corporation (SAIC) [NYSE: SAI] today announced the release of the GRGlobe™
application, a new commercial software solution to create, edit, and visualize
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data natively in a Google Earth™
environment. GRGlobe enables the visualization of spatial data by structuring
it into organized layers and overlaying the feature data on a Google Earth
globe. GRGlobe provides structure to data to enable GIS functionality for use
in government, defense, emergency response, law enforcement, energy,
environmental, utility, education, land management, forestry, and other
Many of the unique GIS workflows have been available for years in the SAIC
GeoRover software tools. SAIC has re-factored these tools into GRGlobe to
offer the same capability in the popular Google Earth environment, providing
users with simple tools to generate timely, accurate and relevant geospatial
information. These tools support common coordinate formats, enable users to
easily import from coordinates to visualize this information, and create
products from layers and attribute data into popular briefing and GIS formats.
Key benefits of using GRGlobe include:
oProvides key functionality for adding and importing data from popular GIS
and document formats, facilitating data interoperability.
oAllows users to easily query and search data.
oEnables data to be categorized logically in a table of contents using
attributes and symbology, allowing users to efficiently query and
oDelivers enhanced GIS capabilities by bringing the techniques and tools of
structured GIS data and workflows to the Google Earth environment.
oSaves time and creates added efficiency.
"The GRGlobe application brings enhanced techniques for managing and
interacting with GIS data to the Google Earth environment," said John Thomas,
SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. "We look
forward to continuing to make GIS easier for novice users, but also provide a
very productive and efficient interface for experienced users to manage,
analyze, display, and disseminate geospatial information with popular software
tools to solve difficult customer problems."
