Grand Junction, CO - ProStar Geocorp announced today that it has successfully achieved Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliance certifications for its Open GIS, Transparent Earth®.

Other major GIS solutions traditionally offer a one-size-fits-all solution. They are costly, complex and offer poor accessibility. Transparent Earth is an open GIS, offering "GIS as a Service" GaaS® that inherently addresses these issues. By providing enterprise integration and interoperability, Transparent Earth is the first open GIS with a natively designed mobile application designed to meet the utility and pipeline industry's unique business processes and regulatory requirements.

Dan Colby, Senior VP of Geospatial Technologies for ProStar, said "We support OGC and as a result, our open GIS and mobile solution embraces OGS standards including Web Map Services (WMS), Web Feature Services (WFS), Web Coverage Services (WCS), Web Processing Services (WPS), Catalogue Service Implementation, Simple Feature Access for SQL, Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding and Coordinate Transformation Services." ProStar's unique integration process enables a single conflated view of applicable data sources to be readily viewed by both office and field personnel. "As our technology and the OGC evolve, we will continue to add OGC certifications," said Colby. "Adopting OGC open standards allows our clients' enterprise systems and processes, which have traditionally been siloed, to become interoperable across all department platforms resulting in significantly improved efficiencies. Now, all relevant GIS, CAD and other enterprise data sources are geo-referenced and accessible from desktop and mobile devices."
