Introducing RightSpot, A New Wave of Mapping Services


October 2, 2012 – Today, Spatial Engineering, Inc. celebrated the release of RightSpot, a sustainable package of products and services designed to augment or establish online mapping space for the masses. RightSpot allows users to move beyond the mundane tasks of creating and maintaining spatial data on a daily basis to leveraging the power of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) through analysis. The RightSpot team works with users to create maps and reports that tell the whole story, extracting more value from GIS.


 “Spatial Engineering has been helping large organizations improve the quality and capability of their GIS for over a decade,” says Rob Lingle, Spatial Engineering’s Vice President of Research and Development. “Although the costs of maintaining enterprise-grade systems have dropped in recent years, we see many organizations that are still unable to implement an effective GIS because they lack the expertise, funding or manpower to get started. With RightSpot, we’ve created a streamlined process that allows each customer to create the best mix of technical support to keep their data in top form and web map functionality to make their data available from anywhere.”


RightSpot works in any browser from any location, eliminating the need for expensive software licenses. RightSpot has options that provide everything needed to make a project of any size and focus successful. As the need for mapping space increases, users can select from our pro-rated hardware and support options scaled to meet demand.


According to Ricky Truluck, PE, President of Spatial Engineering, “Organizations with limited GIS budgets need a 'force multiplier' to overcome the challenges with information management and data sharing.” Access to the organization's data is key to getting the job done. Many organizations recognize web access as that force multiplier; however, it is generally too expensive for limited budgets to procure, manage, and sustain.” How is RightSpot different? “RightSpot provides a cost effective way to assemble, manage, share, and access data across the web. RightSpot is the 'force multiplier’!"

Spatial Engineering Announces Release of IOP | Data Quality Assurance

January 5, 2012 - Spatial Engineering, a leading geospatial engineering firm headquartered near Savannah, Georgia, announced the release of IOP | Data Quality Assurance.

“IOP is the only product on the market that allows data stewards and editors to fulfill the mission of their enterprise GIS by ensuring the integrity of the data independently of toolsets and by providing controlled data access to users and applications,” said Les Sears, Vice President of Research and Development at Spatial Engineering.

“People expend huge resources implementing data management solutions only to find they cannot answer basic management questions about their data like who, when, what, how, and do we check for that.  IOP answers these questions. Imagine CADD users, GIS users, and web users working on a single authoritative database with no data conversion.  IOP does,” said Ricky Truluck, President of Spatial Engineering.

IOP is a highly customizable, web-based quality assurance system developed for use with an enterprise GIS. It allows users to produce high quality GIS data faster by: automating workflows; providing hierarchical user management; managing data ownership for tables, layers, etc., independently of desktop software; providing custom quality control checks; enabling users to identify errors real-time; and allowing users to undo errors.

Several US military installations are in the process of implementing Spatial Engineering’s newest product release.

LizardTech’s Express Server Software Awarded Certificate of Networthiness

Seattle, Washington – July 27, 2010 – LizardTech®, a division of Celartem Inc. and a provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, announced that its Express Server™ 6.1 software has received a Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) from the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command. Express Server’s submission for certification was facilitated by Spatial Engineering, a leading geospatial engineering firm located near Savannah, Georgia.

"After thoroughly evaluating several potential solutions, it is clear that LizardTech Express Server is the only choice for managing large volumes of imagery,” said Les Sears, Spatial Engineering’s vice president of research and development. “Express Server's delivery of compressed imagery, ease of integration and performance greatly enhance the functionality and usability of our geospatial applications."

Express Server is LizardTech’s stable and easy-to-use solution for distributing imagery in standard geospatial formats and along with GeoExpress™ is the second product in LizardTech’s Express Suite line of geospatial software to receive certification. With Express Server, users on any device access imagery faster, even over low-bandwidth connections.

The Certificate of Networthiness signifies that Express Server is configured to the current Army Golden Master (AGM) baseline and complies with all U.S. Army and Department of Defense (DoD) standards for security, compatibility and sustainability. A CoN is required for all enterprise software products in the Army Enterprise Infrastructure Network. Certification applies to the U.S. Army as well as all National Guard, Army Reserve and DoD organizations that use the Army Enterprise Infrastructure Network.

“Receiving certification from the U.S. Army is a significant honor,” said Jon Skiffington, LizardTech’s director of marketing. “By demonstrating that our software meets the DoD’s strict security requirements, our customers within the US Army can now rapidly establish an Express Server installation to deliver imagery to their forward-deployed users, even over bandwidth-starved connections.”
