GeolinQ 1.3.1 now available

GeolinQ 1.3.1 offers new functionality to integrate feature data. In addition the integration via WMS and WFS with WebGIS Publisher, a web based visualization software solution of Nieuwland, a new partne of IntellinQ is enhanced. Also new enhancements of the recently introduced functionality of GeolinQ 1.2.0. is offered.  

In GeolinQ 1.2.0 the Seamless Point Surface dataset driver and WDSL datasource were introduced. The Seamless Point Surface (SPS) driver offers functionality for automatic and flexible compilation of seamless data models based on multiple point cloud and raster datasets. The WSDL datasource enables the import WSDL services as an external datasource in GeolinQ. With these new options and newly designed GUI for external datasources GeolinQ 1.2.0. offers extended functionality to cover the complete value chain from import to the distribution of data and deploy GeolinQ easily for organizations. Data from various sources is linked by data models and is immediately available for visualization and publication.

Seamless Point Surface (SPS) dataset driver   

Functionality to combine administrative and feature data from different datasets were already available in GeolinQ. The Seamless Point Surface (SPS) dataset driver functionality extends the functionality to combine also multiple point cloud and raster datasets to combined datasets. Based on the metadata attributes of the datasets users can configure priority rules. Based on these rules the overlap between the datasets are removed and the hull of the datasets in the SPS determined resulting to the best available data on any location.

Only the footprints of the datasets in the SPS are stored in GeolinQ eliminating redundant storage of point coloud and raster data. This allows fast SPS updating when datasets are added or removed.  More SPS information.

WSDL data source

Next to importing XML and GML data using the GML/XML datasource GeolinQ 1.2.0 offers the new functionality to import data directly from WSDL services. Similar to GML/XML datasources in GeolinQ the underlying data structures of a WSFL are automatically generated and the available services are related to the data model. The flexible data model in GeolinQ offers functionality to link WSDL services so the response of a service can be used as a request for a next service. The WSDL datasources is developed as the new generation of authentic registrations more and more use WSDL interfaces. An example in the Netherlands are the Key register subservice data (BRO)

New GUI external data sources

GeolinQ 1.2.0 offers a newly designed Graphical User Interface (GUI) to interface with external data sources. The new GUI generates intuitive and consistent automatically data models in GeolinQ and functionality to import data from the external data source into GeolinQ. Linking and generating data sources in now similar for XML, GML, WFS, S57 and WSDL. Functionality is now available to make a selecting of the data offered by the external data source so only the relevant data is used.
