Luciad Geospatial Ecosystem

Google recently announced plans to deprecate its primary geospatial enterprise solutions, namely Google Earth Enterprise, Google Earth API and Google Maps Engine/API. This means these services will no longer be supported early 2016.

For organizations using these services, alternatives need to start being considered today. In 2014, Upande became a Luciad Certified Partner. Luciad offers the possibility for customers of Google’s geospatial enterprise solutions to migrate free of charge to Luciad’s geospatial ecosystem. With Luciad, Google users with applications for logistics, track and trace, tourism, traffic management, planning, asset management or any other type of activity can easily migrate to Luciad and instantly benefit from an expansive feature set.

  • High performance 3-D globes
  • Clean, full JavaScript and HTML 5 web maps
  • Ease of use to navigate the globe, animate transitions, add labels for optimal user experience

Enugu Virtual Streets

Upande has recently further expanded its frontiers by taking on a project in Nigeria together with Benjamin Knight & Associates and the Ministry of Lands of Enugu State government. The project dubbed 'Enugu Virtual Streets' not only gives panoramic interactive navigation of the streets of Enugu, but also gives access to thousands of POIs (points of interest), land marks, business listings, etc. collected through partner company Global Geomatics. This data will be made accessible through a website and a series of apps for platforms including Android, iPhone/iPad and BlackBerry as well as through SMS.
