Our team consists of a wide array of experts, who have the skills to develop better software infrastructures and implement international OGC and INSPIRE standards. We help our customers to leverage the newest technologies and to use data driven decision making, to move forward.
We conduct very high-level technical consultancy which covers in example design of data models and databases, development of enterprise and reference architectures, software development, implementation of spatial web services, performance testing of applications and services, system integration and quality of spatial data. Our services cover also spatial data processing, process development and facilitating. In addition, we are specialized in assessing the economic benefits of the use of spatial data at national and organisational level.
National Land Survey is responsible for the development of the national Geospatial Platform that harmonises the spatial data from the state, regions and municipalities and makes them available to users in communities and companies. We have supported NLS in this development and conducted several projects such as: definition of the metadata profile, intelligent search of spatial data and services, analysis of the economic impact of the Platform, and coordination of innovation competitions. National Land Survey has published their key national spatial datasets through spatial web services. The availability of these services is critical for huge amount of users from both public organisations and private companies. We have supported NLS in testing and ensuring the performance of services.
Spatineo has developed a novel approach to an automated method to produce an evergreen catalogue of spatial web services. This method crawls and harvests the web for geographic services and their data collections, followed by a filtering process which identifies what is relevant to that particular SDI. This method is used to produce both the Canadian Spatial Data Infrastructure service list as well as an experimental catalogue of Arctic Spatial Data for the Arctic SDI.
Commonly agreeing on how spatial information should be exchanged effortlessly and reliably has been in the core of what we do at Spatineo from day one. Our experts have hands-on experience how the technical specifications from standards organisations such as OGC and ISO can and should be implemented effectively in environments such as the EU INSPIRE Directive implementation. Our participation in real-world projects with industry leaders such as Vaisala and the Finnish Meteorological Institute continuously gives us good insight into how the existing standards should be developed further. As well-known and agile members of the OGC and the INSPIRE communities, we can find the best answers to technical questions and realize the potential the international standardisation that spatial data has.
