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.

Benefits include:

  • Data management and fusion: serve custom vector and raster data throughout an enterprise and serve all applications with tiled data Extensive set of supported formats and standards out of the box
  • 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
  • State-of-the-art support for KML And much more…
