INTERGEO 2012: No Olympic Games Without Geoinformation Print E-mail
Written by HINTE GmbH   
Monday, 06 August 2012

Karlsruhe, 6 August 2012. The XXXth Olympic Games in London are currently keeping sports fans gripped all over the world. Athletes from 204 nations are competing in 26 sports at 29 venues. Six million visitors from across the globe are expected in the UK capital over this period. Geoinformation is indispensable in planning and organizing the Olympic Games.

Developing the public transport network was one of the biggest challenges for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) and Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA). As well as building the sports venues and launching shuttle trains, it was also necessary to plan the extension to the East London Line and the development of the Docklands Light Railway and North London Line. Geoinformation helped project managers in mapping and visualising the processes and workflows and made communication easier.

Security is playing a particularly important role in London at the moment. Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I) supplied the British Transport Police with a system to offer all security organizations involved in the 2012 Olympics the opportunity to access up-to-date spatial image data from maps, aerial images, traffic data and surveillance videos in real time. Work involving the various emergency services is coordinated via a web-based platform.

"Our Erdas Apollo solution pools the data and makes it accessible to operational control and crew systems, enabling the British Transport Police to fulfil every aspect of its extensive security duties," says Dr. Matthias Alisch, Intergraph Senior Marketing Manager EMEA Public Safety & Security.

The full range of geodesy, geoinformation and land management can be seen at INTERGEO in Hanover from 9 to 11 October 2012. New technologies and applications from a total of 500 exhibitors will show the roughly 1,400 conference visitors and approximately 15,000 trade fair visitors the enormous range of possible uses.

DVW Ė German Society for Geodesy, Geoinformation und Land Management e.V. is the host of the 18th INTERGEO, which will be held in Hanover from 9 to 11 October 2012.
