Spatial Information Solutions is now owned and supported by CompassData, Inc. A leader in GIS Ground Control.
CENTENNIAL, Colorado, 9 April 2014 – CompassData, a worldwide provider of high-quality Ground Control Points (GCPs) for GIS, photogrammetric and remote sensing applications, has purchased the assets of Spatial Information Solutions (SIS) of Starkville, Miss. CompassData will continue the SIS Map Accuracy Tools software product line, which is relied upon by geospatial end users in the defense, civilian government, and architecture-engineering-construction markets.
CompassData will demonstrate the SIS Map Accuracy Tools, which include the popular Accuracy Analyst 3.0 and Topo Analyst 1.0 applications, in booth #2063 at GEOINT 13* being held April 14-17, 2014, in Tampa, Fla.
“We bought the assets of SIS because there is great synergy between our Ground Control Point offerings and the Accuracy Analyst and Topo Analyst software tools,” said CompassData CEO and Founder W. Brant Howard. “CompassData will continue to offer, support and expand the SIS Map Accuracy Tools product lines.”
The Map Accuracy Tools are content enhancement solutions that automate map accuracy verification and eliminate manual processing, ensuring consistent quality control of geospatial products. Accuracy Analyst is a simple, fast and complete workflow solution that verifies the accuracy and quality of orthorectified photos and images. Topo Analyst automatically tests and verifies the accuracy of elevation data products, including LiDAR point clouds, Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), IFSAR products and other raster elevation data sets.
“Accuracy Analyst and Topo Analyst have a loyal customer base in the federal government space – both defense/intelligence and civilian – and among GIS users in the architecture, engineering and construction [AEC] sectors,” said Howard. “We are excited to serve these existing clients and expand the Map Accuracy Tools to new markets.”
