Ingres goes geospatial with 10S edition


Actian has added geospatial support to a new edition of its Ingres database.

Ingres 10S is designed to handle geospatial data and supports leading applications including Esri's ArcGIS for Desktop and Safe Software's FME.

"We are collecting more spatial data on a more frequent basis such as addresses, geocodes and co-ordinates," says Tyler Mitchell, geospatial guru and consultant engineering director at Actian.  

"Companies can no longer afford to have the spatial component of their data segregated from the rest of their enterprise data. Ingres 10S lets you store and manipulate data alongside traditional data, and our GIS functions and data types are included out-of-the-box. With Ingres 10S you can perform spatial analysis, enable web mapping and create maps more easily using leading GIS applications."

Ingres 10S also supports the open source MapServer and GeoServer, and works with programming libraries such as GeoTools.

Ingres 10S for Linux, along with other editions of Ingres 10 and 9, is available here.
