PTFS will be exhibiting at the annual GIS for Transportation Symposium for its 4th consecutive year from April 23rd – 26th, 2019 at the Omni Orlando Resort at Champions Gate in Florida. The GIS-T symposium is a wonderful opportunity for Government and Private industry personnel in the Transportation Industry to share experiences, learn about the latest state-of-art software and learn more in general about GIS technology and how it is shaping the industry. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) sponsors the annual GIS for Transportation Symposium.
PTFS is proud to exhibit the latest enhancements and customer use cases of its flagship Content Services Platform, Knowvation GSTM. We encourage all attendees to come by our booth and visit with us to learn how our platform can help your Transportation Department! Knowvation is a platform for search and discovery along with enhanced indexing capabilities to make those data silos more readily accessible. The combination of powerful query tools and intuitive interfaces allows more time to analyze information, enabling geospatial analysts to make better decisions and create high quality products quickly. All of this done with data that is spread across the enterprise from multiple sources and repositories.
Becky Hjelm from Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and Dan Quinn from PTFS will be co-presenting “Next Generation Data Discovery: fusing structured and unstructured content from multi repositories” on Friday, April 26 at 9:00. The session presents the results for UDOT’s Knowvation based program to index/search many repositories simultaneously. It is sure to be one of the show highlights.
