Telemorphic, Inc. Recognized for Excellence in the Geotechnologies Industry.BOSTON -- Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present Telemorphic, Inc., a leading developer of Geographic Information Systems geographic information system (GIS)
Computerized system that relates and displays data collected from a geographic entity in the form of a map. The ability of GIS to overlay existing data with new information and display it in colour on a computer screen is used primarily to (GIS) technology, with the 2004 Customer Value Enhancement Award in recognition of the outstanding contribution made by the company's software product, MultiViewer.
The award is given each year to the company that has best demonstrated the ability to expand the customer base, while maintaining the existing install base, with more innovative value creation and enhancement strategies than competing vendors within the company's industry. The award acknowledges the company's successful sales entry, customer acquisition and service strategies, and the degree to which these strategies have met customer needs and requirements.
Telemorphic designed MultiViewer as a powerful yet easy-to-use extension to ESRI's ArcGIS software. MultiViewer enables users to simultaneously compare multiple scanned maps, and images from different sensors as well as other raster The horizontal lines (scan lines) displayed on a TV or computer monitor. This is the origin of the term "raster graphics," which is the major category that all bitmapped images and video frames fall into (GIF, JPEG, MPEG, etc.). and vector GIS data layers. Users can layer different types of information while evaluating certain degrees of sensor fusion Sensor fusion is the combining of sensory data or data derived from sensory data from disparate sources such that the resulting information is in some sense better than would be possible when these sources were used individually. -- effectively coupling panchromatic pan·chro·mat·ic

This evaluation can be accomplished in side-by-side or layered images, giving the user a look at phenomena such as vegetation health over time, soil characteristics, coastline erosion and others. The application also allows users to work with any geospatial data that can be displayed in the ArcGIS environment. Such data may reside locally, served to the desktop application via an organization's enterprise GIS (Geodatabase, ArcSDE, DBMS (DataBase Management System) Software that controls the organization, storage, retrieval, security and integrity of data in a database. It accepts requests from the application and instructs the operating system to transfer the appropriate data. , and/or ArcIMS), or accessed on-line from Internet GIS resources.
"The interpretative ability MultiViewer demonstrates is a milestone in pushing unique interpretive capabilities to newer users," says Frost & Sullivan Senior Analyst Ron Stearns. "ArcGIS is used in the creation, management, integration, analysis, display, and dissemination of spatial data Data that is represented as 2D or 3D images. A geographic information system (GIS) is one of the primary applications of spatial data (land maps). See spatial analysis, spatial resolution and GIS glossary. , and MultiViewer adds significant value to this core offering."
With a price point near $300, MultiViewer adds a great deal of interpretive capability without adding a large layer of investment. Targeted applications include: defense and intelligence, homeland security Noun 1. Homeland Security - the federal department that administers all matters relating to homeland security

executive department - a federal department in the executive branch of the government of the United States , agriculture, forestry, local governments, and others. In creating MultiViewer as an ArcGIS extension, Telemorphic taps into a potential pool of tens of thousands of GIS "seats" or users.
Telemorphic, a privately held corporation Noun 1. privately held corporation - a corporation owned by a few people; shares have no public market
close corporation, closed corporation, private corporation based in Berkeley, Calif., gained popularity with its off-the-shelf MapImager and Maplicity geospatial products and development tools. The company has also proven its prowess as a provider of cutting-edge geospatial technologies and application development services to leading IT/GIS solutions integrators.
For its ability to maximize the value of its offerings, and exhibit remarkable growth in a highly-competitive market, and for its successful launch of a new service protocol to improve overall customer ownership experience, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Telemorphic by awarding it the 2004 Customer Value Enhancement Award for Geotechnologies.
