Geospatial Web Conferencing Technology
PCI Geomatics Releases GeoConference®

Richmond Hill, Ontario – June 22, 2009: PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of geo-imaging software and systems, today announced the release of its geospatial web conferencing technology. GeoConference Version 3.0 is a software solution which enables groups to share and view maps and images interactively over the web, in real-time. Today’s announcement was made at the World Conference on Disaster Management in Toronto, Canada.

"GeoConference brings geospatial information into a web enabled collaboration environment, giving all conference participants instant, real time access to multiple, shared data sources. This enhances situational awareness and provides GeoConference participants with a common operational picture," said Yves Carbonneau, Chief Product Specialist at PCI Geomatics. "The bottom line is that GeoConference 3.0 allows for effective decision making in critical situations."

About GeoConference Version 3.0:

GeoConference contains tools for hosting interactive geospatial teleconferences, linking clients in remote locations and facilitating connections to geospatial databases.

The benefits of GeoConference include: a cost-effective way to share maps, exchange information and simultaneously receive feedback from colleagues in real-time, reduce travel expenditures, easy set up and implementation, secure distribution of geospatial data without replication, use of open data standards and integration with other geomatics technology.

GeoConference 3.0 gives users control over their sessions through an invitation process they can initiate. This allows anyone who receives an invitation by email to instantly join a GeoConference using a thin client application that installs in seconds. GeoConference includes session recording and review capabilities; an audit trail of activities is stored on the server which can be used for reviewing decisions made in their situational context for a thorough post mortem analysis.
