T-Kartor USA, as part of the Harris corporation team has been awarded the Foundation GEOINT Content Management (FGCM) contract for up to five years to provide geospatial data services to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
The Harris team will utilize T-Kartor’s data-centric approach using a “One Feature One Time” database, which automatically eliminates data redundancy and ensures data currency. This approach significantly reduces the time required for processing and delivery of products and services when compared with traditional methods.
T-Kartor has successfully developed and demonstrated database-centric, seamless cartographic production for over 20 years and has consistently provided real efficiencies across domains. T-Kartor’s production approach results in real time products with significant unit cost reductions when compared to traditional methodologies.
“T-Kartor USA has been working with Harris for over eight years preparing and persuing the FGCM contract. To be a part of the winning team is the best affirmation we can receive, solidifying our database-centric strategy as the most efficient and cost effective way to produce a large number of continuously maintained products.” says COO Elliott Ferguson.
