1 Open Source Autodesk’s Web – GIS Strategy Frank von Arx, Director Topobase Solutions

2 Web 1.0 & Web 2.0 Web 1.0 – first generation publishing Britannica OnlineYahoo! Personal web pagesPublished content –Mapping: MapGuide 6.x, MapXtreme, ArcIMS –MapServer Web 2.0 – second generation participation WikipediaGoogle MapsYouTube/MySpace BlogsPersonal & collaborative content –Mapping: MapGuide Open Source & FDO

3 Geospatial standards Proprietary Legacy Geospatial follows IT standards SQL  SQL/MM XML  GML Web services  WMS, WFS, WCS, and more Open Source GRASS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System) –Began 1982 MapServer

4 Why open source? Web mapping becomes commoditized –Active open source community for MapServer –Less complex than desktop applications –Revenue opportunities in vertical applications

5 For customers: –Frequent software releases –Faster innovation and support for standards –Lower cost of ownership For the open-source geospatial community: –Increased presence and credibility –Access to a modern, well-built platform –Technical expertise, sponsorship and business resources For Autodesk: –Broader adoption of integrated technology –Increased demand for related products Benefits

6 Autodesk’s commitment to open source Sponsor of the Open Geospatial Foundation - Support for MapGuide and FDO projects –Member of technical steering committee –Active with developer community –Continued code contributions MapGuide open source development drives Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise –Shared code base –Enterprise version includes QA and support Regional Chapters have started China India Japan Canada In formation Brazil France Germany Italy

7 MapGuide Open Source Launch Interactive mapping applications Advanced server-based geospatial platform –Publish Autodesk, ESRI, MapInfo, Oracle data and more –Create geospatial websites and web services –State-of-the-art code base Advanced, open source data access –Same FDO technology as Map 3D and Raster Design –Direct access to different data formats –Read and write data access without data loss –Advanced API for web and server solutions

8 What is MapGuide? Deliver web-based applications with: Dynamic data visualization Feature selection and attribute display Data query and update Geospatial analysis Available as Open source Commercial version
