TODO: Cute little snippet
Managing large amounts of spatial data can be difficult. Shapefiles, file geodatabases, spatially-enabled relational databases and imagery can reside in many different places within the IT infrastructure of an organization. Finding all information relevant to a given location can take time and sometimes important information is lost. Commercial GIS products have some great solutions, but they require a commercial license.
The good news is powerful alternatives can be found in the open-source ecosystem to commercial software that do not require licensing fees. Most solutions, commercial or otherwise, manage the relationships between data sets (i.e. feature classes) and web map layers. GeoPrism KG takes it to the next level by managing the relationships between individual data points, the data sets in which they are referenced, and the web map layers in which they appear.
Business intelligence reporting is not very useful, and possibly even misleading, if the quality of your data is bad. You must have assurance that your data were processed and curated according to your workflow and data integrity rules through an automated and traceable process. GeoPrism has a framework for building collaborative workflows for curating spatial data.
Your data workflows must protect organizational information through enforced access control rules. These are absolutely critical to manage risk if your business, non-profit, or government entity is regulated by external regulations, where failure to comply could result in serious consequences. GeoPrism has a role-based access control (RBAC) implementation that has been used to enforce enterprise access rules in applications deployed in several industry verticals.
