ONE CLICK DATA PUBLISHING FOR ArcGIS

GeoCat Bridge, our extension for Esri ArcGIS Desktop, has been designed to make the process of publishing geospatial data on the internet as easy as hitting the Publish button. From your project in ArcGIS Desktop, you are literally only one click away from publishing your geographic data and metadata on the Internet using an open source server platform.


What makes Bridge the ultimate publishing solution?

You are in control

Publishing using Bridge creates map services that can be used to build from the simplest to the most advanced map applications.

Z

Comply with directives

Create View Services with related metadata that complies to ISO, OGC, INSPIRE or is based upon an even more specific country profile.

Supports Open Standards

Publishing data through Open Standards allows consumers to make optimal use of your data.

No more double work

Complex symbology, scale, coordinate reference systems, data formats, metadata management. We use it all and improve it where we think we do better.

Publish to GeoServer, MapServer and GeoNetwork:

Create great looking maps and publish them to GeoServer (part of the OpenGeo Suite), MapServer and/or GeoNetwork opensource metadata catalog. You can even upload your maps in PostGIS. We’ve taken that extra mile to ensure you get the best possible result, carefully optimizing the symbology output.

GeoCat Bridge is the long awaited product that promises to fill the gap between our open – and closed source hybrid geospatial frameworks. Specific knowledge on how to make services is no longer needed. Finally we can fulfil the needs of our staff by providing them with a tool to make services by themselves in an easy way.

Technical Advisor, Rijkswaterstaat (Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment)

The combination of ArcGIS Desktop and publishing data to an open source server platform in accordance with INSPIRE regulations is exactly what our customers need. It is one of the main reasons why we were asked to build the INSPIRE services for all 25 Regional Water Authorities and the Department of Cultural Heritage (RCE) in The Netherlands.

GeoCat Bridge is a key part of our Neftex Earth Model publishing workflow, enabling us to easily replicate the geological symbols used to style our ArcGIS produced content. Now we can deliver Web Map Services to our international oil industry clients through GeoServer, retaining the familiar appearance of our desktop GIS data products.

We are very excited to offer the GeoCat Bridge plugin to users of the OpenGeo Suite. This will greatly improve workflows for our users of Esri Desktop software, and make it much simpler for everyone to put their maps onto the web.
