Map Suite Winforms Edition will be used by Cornell University's Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (CUUAV) team to provide real-time mapping and spatial analysis as they compete in the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and Microsoft's Imagine Cup competitions.
"Spatially Aware's software has been of immense value to our project team." said Karl Schulze Project Lead for the Cornell Team. "The mapping utility is easy to use and integrate into our existing program. We could just plug our data inputs right into it and in a matter of a few hours of setup time, we had a very professional-looking GIS system integrated into our aircraft monitoring software." The team uses the software to map coordinates being sent by a GPS transmitter on the underbelly of the aircraft. As it travels its flight path, the coordinates are passed into Map Suite where an image of the aircraft is shown on the map and moves in real time.
"Their API is very broad and makes a large number of complicated operations automatic or almost trivial to implement from the client software's perspective and the Spatially Aware team's customer service has been absolutely phenomenal. They are always willing to resolve issues in the fastest possible timeframe to help us meet our critical deadlines, including providing overnight and sometimes even same-day fixes to problems that arise." said Schulze.
