Expertise in open-source and commercial geospatial technologies to process, analyze, visualize, and interact with geospatial data at any scale.
Evaluating your needs: The right tool for the right job
Unlike product companies that focus on selling a specific product or platform, as a professional services firm, Prominent Edge is impartial to any specific geospatial technology. Our expertise spans a wide range of both open source and commercial geospatial technologies, with a solid understanding of the advantages and benefits of each. Our objective evaluation of your goals, constraints, and existing systems enables us to offer an unbiased recommendation specifically geared to your unique needs.Get Started Now
Custom Geospatial Solutions
Our expertise in geospatial solutions and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) includes a wide array of technologies and capabilities that we leverage to provide situational awareness, context, and location based services. Specific areas of expertise include:
- Browser-based, desktop, and mobile spatio-temporal solutions
- Solutions that leverage open source geospatial technologies (e.g., PostGIS, Mapbox, OpenLayers, GeoServer, and more)
- Solutions that leverage ESRI Server and other commercial technologies
- Highly scalable, serverless solutions that employ technologies such as vector tiles and Cloud-optimized GeoTIFFs
- 2D and 3D (e.g., Cesium, WebGL) geospatial visualization capabilities
- Infrastructure for disconnected or limited connectivity environments
- Integration of real-time sensor feeds, streaming data, and Internet of Things (IoT)
Geospatial analytics incorporate the valuable dimensions of location and time into your data to offer a more complete picture of events, yielding insights that become more readily apparent in a geospatially-enabled context. Geospatial analytics rely on georeferenced raster and vector data, leveraging today's ubiquitous array of location-aware technologies and spatially-enabled data sources. At Prominent Edge, we employ distributed technologies (such as Spark, GeoWave, GeoMasa, GeoTrellis, and ElasticSearch) to develop analytics that can achieve your objectives.Get Started Now
Geospatial Support Packages
