Sparx Systems Supports GEOSS

Enterprise Architect, the full life cycle, UML modeling tool from Sparx Systems, is made freely* available to the GEOSS community via the Component and Service Registry. Licences can be accessed here http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise-architect-sdo.php


This technology contribution supports the “data sharing” foundation of GEOSS, and enables shared, integrated vision, between the nine Societal Benefit Areas across geographic and domain boundaries. Accomplishing this vision using today's disparate systems requires establishing an internationally coordinated operational framework to facilitate interoperability and harmonization. Enterprise Architect supports synergies between systems, and standards in separate environments can be modelled in a single tool, for accurate sharing of standards information with minimal time delay.


The UML 2.3 powered, team-based modeling environment encompasses the full product development lifecycle, with high-performance visual tools for business modeling, systems engineering, enterprise architecture, requirements management, software design, code generation, testing and more.



* Conditions apply

Sparx Systems announces that it will provide support to the Joint Research Centre(JRC) by making licenses of Enterprise Architect available to the Spatial Data Infrastructure(SDI) unit.  JRC is developing the legal acts and guidelines for the technical components of INSPIRE, delivering integrated spatial information services to European policy makers.

For further information, please read the full press release.

Sparx Systems will sponsor the inaugural CEN/TC 287 Award for Academic Excellence within INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community). This award will promote academic excellence within the European geospatial community, specifically in development and deployment of interoperability standards. It provides an industry acknowledgement of the outstanding efforts of students and their mentors in this area of geomatics. The award was announced at the INSPIRE Conference 2010 in Kraków, Poland, and will be presented at the INSPIRE meeting in 2011 in Scotland.

ISO/TC 211 develops and maintains standards in digital geographic information, using Enterprise Architect to represent information models. Enterprise Architect has been widely adopted for UML modeling within the geospatial community.

On Monday the  24th of May there will be an Interoperability Workshop, to present examples of  the application of International Standards in national projects. It is open to non delegates and free of charge.  Registration is required to attend the event.

For further information please visit the ISO/TC website: http://www.isotc211.org
