Wakey wakey boys some good news today. You are here: Home » News » 1Spatial chosen for European Location Framework Project (ELF) One Reference Geo-Information Service For Europe 1Spatial chosen for European Location Framework Project (ELF) One Reference Geo-Information Service For Europe Cambridge, UK, 1st August 2013: 1Spatial Group Limited has confirmed it is taking a consortium role in the European Location Framework (ELF) project, set up to deliver up-to-date, authoritative, interoperable, cross-border reference geo-data to be accessed by the European public and private sectors. The project is being supported by a consortium of partners across Europe. The work is being co-funded by the European Commission and represents a total project investment of €13M over the three year term of the project. ELF will deliver a pan-European cloud service built on the work of the INSPIRE directive. The INSPIRE directive came into force in 2007 and was established to create a European Union spatial data infrastructure, to share data among public sector organisations and better facilitate public access to spatial data across the region. ELF, launched in March this year, has been designed to grow the wider use of geo-information and enable the creation of innovative value-added services. This includes encouraging content creation by SMEs both inside and outside the consortium. "We are delighted to be part of the ELF consortium to provide products and expertise around our core strengths of data quality management, automated generalisation and edge-matching and look forward to working with the rest of the members on the project," commented Marcus Hanke, Chief Executive of 1Spatial. "The project will define the role of geospatial data in Europe and is a signpost for a global geospatial management system for the future," added Marcus Hanke. The consortium is committed to supporting the ELF Platform beyond the end of the project, to create a trustworthy and sustainable framework of public sector reference geo-data in various levels of detail. The consortium consists of 30 partners across Europe. UK partners involved in the project, in addition to 1Spatial, include Europa Technologies Limited, Ordnance Survey Great Britain, Snowflake Software Limited, Open Geospatial Consortium Limited and Netrius Management Services Limited.

PS imo there is never an excuse for keeping investors in the dark about likely revenue growth - its not giving anything away - but it is putting the BOD in the firing line - which they should be after all - but not all BOD's like that - whatever salary they are drawing that might justify the personal risk.

Yes, I can see where Yump is coming from on the limited information on pipeline, but am not surprised by that as there must be a lot of work going on behind the scenes bringing the new company on board and launching the new products. This is clearly an ever expanding area that I feel 1Spatial is in a great position to flourish in with their offering, and seeing mwaller's posts and the latest report from NPlus 1 Singer I feel confident in the future of my investment

Evening all. The Tadpole story piqued my interest and I did more digging to see where things are now at with ESRI. I think the interesting thing is we got some solid proof points that the way the market is playing out and positioning of SPA is sound. We all now know the Tadpole/ESRI failure at OS proves that SPA has world class technology. However here is proof ESRI, the biggest player in the Spatial market, still to this day cannot solve the problem that hit them in OS. They probably can't due to their technology limitation. Right now the situation is they are forced to find new ways to plug the expanding hole in their portfolio as the market trends more and more towards mobile and spatial big data lifecycle management, in the process reenforcing SPAs key position and opportunity. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/sap-delivers-real-time-spatial-100000123.htmlExcerpt Intro: SAP and ESRI Market Making for SPASAN DIEGO, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP AG (SAP) today announced it has joined forces with Esri, a leading geographic information system (GIS) and location analytics provider, to more deeply integrate GIS solutions with platforms and enterprise applications from SAP in order to improve business efficiency and decision-making. Esri and SAP are committed to helping SAP customers and the spatial data industry benefit from integration between SAP® solutions and Esri's leading GIS platform. The announcement was made at the 2013 Esri International User Conference, being held July 8-12 in San Diego.Excerpt - that shows what's in it for ESRI - to try fix their spatial data engine performance problem ##Native High-Performance Processing of Spatial Data Using SAP HANA.... Furthermore, Esri and SAP intend to optimize connectivity between Esri ArcGIS and SAP HANA via Query Layers, #...which will allow Esri ArcGIS users to push spatial processing into SAP HANA, unleashing high-performing and real-time capabilities...#Excerpt 2 shows what's in it for ESRI to fix their mobile workforce problem, and try address the developing market opportunity for mobile ESRI ArcGIS Integration with SAP Mobile Platform for Location-based Work ManagementSAP plans to add new integration using the SDK for SAP Mobile Platform to extend companies' geospatial data from ESRI ArcGIS systems to mobile field employees. Similar to desktop systems, SAP Mobile Platform is planned to enable application users to manipulate interactive maps and to obtain extremely detailed information on the geographic region in question. By tying into SAP Business Suite, mobile apps like SAP® Work Manager and SAP® CRM Service Manager are intended to effectively combine business process information like work orders, parts inventory levels and historical asset information with geospatial data to give mobile users an extremely rich, multi-system work environment. For instance, SAP plans to enable mobile users to efficiently find jobs and assets nearby, filter for equipment by location and view work orders from a map. Such use cases can serve to completely eliminate paper data entry and the hunt for the right information."Esri ArcGIS is the leading platform for organizations implementing a location analytics strategy through the geo-enablement of their enterprise business systems," said Chris Cappelli, director, Sales, Esri. "By working with SAP to integrate ArcGIS across SAP HANA, analytic solutions and SAP Mobile Platform, intends that customers can easily leverage Esri within their SAP landscape."---This is good news in the big picture. It shows the other biggest players in enterprise software see the SPA market, and must now invest to further develop it and keep up. ESRI still does not have the engine and has turned to SAP, giving the core advantage to SPA. Why? SPA for its part - post placing can now compete and deliver the end to end solution with their new Management suite, incorporating 1Edit for mobile and Star Apic front end. This covers off the key functionality from a single vendor. (Without the same technology limitation) The PR and the marketing push of these global firms will continue to help develop opportunities. Prospects will before they buy want to see a proven working solution as an alternative to the SAP/ESRI marriage. They need a second horse in the race. When they look, there is only one place to go. When partnered with Oracle SPA have the muscle too. With the US census client they already have a strategic foothold in the NA market. Think about it - things really are getting lined up and warmed up. We will start to see this playing out!

Thanks mmelody for the above post. It was all before my time but found it interesting to dig deeper and put the Tadpole story together for context. This link / story actually reenforces the point of value and capability of SPA technology and IP, and why SPA has a very real opportunity to drive a strong presence in the growing spatial big data market. Some can say its all hype, but this a fact based reality - any fool can research the size of the market and it growing. So long as the SPA teams execute the growth strategy the addressable market is huge and growing. As investors we are in a very good place as we move into the growth cycle. The Tadpole story proves beyond doubt why SPA is a core technology company worth tracking. It's illustrative of a small company supported by a much much larger company (ESRI and SPA competitor) that still despite a large company backing and resources couldn't deliver on the OS core requirements and support the aspirations of the worlds most advanced mapping agency. After 3 years of trying the contracts were cancelled. They couldn't deliver on the big data volumes and multi user demands for managing the updates, secure the required data quality and it blew up. SPA took over the solution and have delivered using their technology and IP - they delivered the engine that now powers OS data. OS can now continue to expand and invest further in SPA technology with new developments like 1edit and 1plan, and the ability to manage and control the huge spatial data volumes that are essential to their business and business model as they expand round the globe, can be supported by SPA. The below links tell the story for anybody interested. 5 Jul 2002 http://prod.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/about/news/2002/toad.html Ordnance Survey is to develop a new generation of field editing and data management systems to further enhance its most detailed mapping of Britain and speed its updating. The national mapping agency has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Tadpole-Cartesia and ESRI to develop the software and build the new system, which it plans to bring in to use by late 2003. Ordnance Survey's 400-plus nationwide surveyors will use the system to record and seamlessly update geospatial data, such as new buildings, streets and pathways, from the field to OS MasterMap, the nation's official and most detailed digital map database and on-line delivery service. Currently, field staff use pen computers to edit fixed tiles of existing mapping data which they extract from the large-scales database. While they are doing this, access to the mapping data has to be barred to other staff who may also need to use the same data for other projects. In addition, data movements between field users and the main database in Southampton involve very large files, as all the information on each tile has to be transferred to and from the field. The new system, named the Field Object Editor (FOE), will maintain mapping that is seamless, and all access to the data will be controlled by a sophisticated transaction management system. This will not only avoid editing complications encountered at the edge of fixed map tiles, but will also allow the existing data to be accessed simultaneously by multiple users, such as other field survey staff or those based at Ordnance Survey's head office. From inception, the FOE has been designed to take advantage of the development of remote communication technologies. As a result, the speed of updating will be quicker, as it will be possible for specific updates to the map to be returned to the database at any time. Furthermore, because of database enhancements at Southampton and inherent quality assurance systems designed into FOE, information collected once in the field will be available immediately to enhance a host of different products without the need for additional survey work or verification. OS MasterMap is the definitive digital face of Britain, showing detail as fine as the shapes of individual houses and their precise location. It is the most accessible and intelligent geospatial data ever produced of Britain, as more than 400 million objects in the data have each been allocated a 16-digit topographic identifier (TOID) to allow the easy integration, exchange and analysis of third-party information. The validity and accuracy of Ordnance Survey's geospatial data is fundamental to the operations of thousands of professionals in both the public and private sectors. Following an international tendering process, Tadpole-Cartesia has been selected="selected" to be the prime contractor for the development and deployment of the FOE. It will be built around the Tadpole Group's ESRI ArcGIS-based field mapping and Endeavors Technology's Magi software products. Following the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding, a formal contract to initiate the work will now be drawn up. It is hoped that detailed work will be underway later this month (July 2002). Ed Parsons, Ordnance Survey's Chief Technology Officer, comments: "Ordnance Survey's next generation data capture system is possibly the most advanced and sophisticated large scale mapping project ever undertaken by any national mapping organisation anywhere in the world. Tadpole's ESRI-based mapping and Magi collaboration technologies will enable Ordnance Survey to deliver our planned programme of continuous improvement to OS MasterMap, ensuring that we keep ahead of the growing demand for more intelligent data with greater accuracy and accessibility." Under an international licence and partnership agreement with Ordnance Survey, Tadpole also intends to market the field editing and data management system to other mapping agencies around the world. See this release: it states clearly the aspiration and intention and at the end developing a seamless database instead of tiled - and a transition management system by Tadpole (ESRI) to allow multi users. This is what SPA can do (see prior posts) and these other competing technologies cannot do. http://boards.fool.co.uk/os-news-7855057.aspx?sort=threaded Technology: Mobile Computing by Karl Cushing Tuesday 15 April 2003 Ordnance Survey staff to get XP Tablet PCs The Ordnance Survey is to issue its field surveyors with 300 Tablet PCs running Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition to enable them to supply faster updates to OS Mastermap, its digital map database and online delivery service. "We are upgrading our Tablet PCs in anticipation of the demands we will be putting on the system," said project manager Simon Bartlett. "There is a definite return on investment in using Tablet PCs and digital technology. It also greatly enhances the quality and accuracy of the data." The Tablet PCs will use the Ordnance Survey's new data capture and field editing system, Field Object Editor, which is currently under development. Using the pen-based interface, surveyors will record geospatial data such as the position of buildings and streets and send updates to the central database from which OS Mastermap is produced. The Field Object Editor is based on ESRI software adapted by software firm Tadpole. The surveyors currently use Fujitsu Siemens FT 3400 and 3500 tablet PCs running Windows 98 and a geographic information system mapping application called Prism that pulls files from a central database for updating. Mapping IT The Ordnance Survey finished digitising its 233,000 map files in 1995 Electronic data accounts for 80% of its turnover It is developing a central database to hold its files in a "seamless" instead of a "tiled" format of individual files. The data will be controlled by a transaction management system from Tadpole to enable access by multiple users instead of a single user, as at present Three years on 14/11/2006 Tadpole is finished "but its work on database job management and data validation would cease. " this is one of the SPA core technologies capabilities and most critical Spatial Big Data propositions and challenges. http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2006/nov/14/news.technology The Ordnance Survey has suspended much of the work being carried out by Tadpole Technology, a software partner that has for three years been working on a next-generation digital database for the Crown copyright mapping body. A spokesman for the Ordnance Survey said much, if not all, of Tadpole's work on the software programme known as Phoenix might be reviewed and could have to be redone. There had been a number of issues with "data integrity". Only a fraction of the mapping body's revenues are generated by selling paper maps. Commercial applications for digitised mapping dominate earnings. The Ordnance Survey, which pays an annual dividend to the Treasury and is overseen by the department for communities and local government, last year spent £24m on its investment programme, with Phoenix believed to have dominated this spending. Phoenix, which according to the Ordnance Survey annual report is a "seamless database management system", is scheduled to be ready for use by government and commercially by next financial year. A spokesman last night said the suspension, from December 11, would not delay delivery. Tadpole, which is Aim listed, warned investors in a statement yesterday that a strategic review being carried out by the Ordnance Survey could result in a "permanent suspension". The measure would "have severe adverse impact on the company's trading performance and funding requirements", it said. The Ordnance Survey said Tadpole would continue to have a role in data capturing for Phoenix but its work on database job management and data validation would cease. No one from the company was available for comment yesterday. A spokesman for the Ordnance Survey said it had the contractual right to suspend Tadpole's work at short notice and that no compensation would be paid.
