GeoNorth Information Systems secures contract with the State of Alaska to stream Statewide Digital Mapping Initiative (SDMI) content

Anchorage, AK. -- February 14, 2017 -- GeoNorth Information Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Tatitlek Corporation and a leader in geospatial and technology solutions today announced it has been awarded a contract by the State of Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to provide imagery streaming services to the general public. GeoNorth will provide the business and technical services required to ensure that the general public has 24/7 access to the state’s SDMI imagery and other ancillary data layers. GeoNorth Information Systems will be leveraging Terra Pixel LLC's Streamap software to deliver the imagery streaming services to the users. The SDMI imagery provides a basemap for the entire state and is a critical resource to a wide variety of users supporting a broad range of mapping and analytic applications.

“GeoNorth Information Systems is both honored and excited to have been chosen by the state to provide these services”, said Doug Hobson, Executive Director of GeoNorth Information Systems' geospatial solutions team. “As an Alaskan-based company that has been working with the Alaskan geospatial community for over 20 years, we understand the importance of this data to a broad swath of users throughout the state, including users from the federal, state and local governments, industry and the general public. We look forward to supporting all of these users and ensuring reliable and timely access to this critical information resource,” said Hobson.
