Germantown, MD, Sept. 13, 2006 — Tensing USA announced that it has won four contracts from international utility and local government organizations to implement GIS-related products from its Tensing line of mobility solutions. The contracts have been awarded to Tensing by MainPower of New Zealand, Origin Energy of Australia, Blacktown City Council in Australia, and the City of Tshwane in Pretoria, South Africa.
Tensing business partner We-do-IT, an Australian geospatial information technology services company specializing in enterprise application integration will handle implementations of the MainPower, Origin Energy and Blacktown City Council solutions.
MainPower and the City of Tshwane have purchased the Tensing SPYder Web GIS product, a solution that is designed to enable the organizations to display, query and print GIS data over the Internet or intranet.
Tensing SPYder Web GIS is designed to address those departments or remote personnel not requiring corporate GIS seats but still needing to display, view, query and control GIS for their own purposes. SPYder Web GIS delivers the total solution for the geo-presentation of digital maps and access to existing corporate GIS applications for the thin-client environment, both internally and externally. With no limitation to hardware, GIS data can now be spatially and textually presented on desktop computers, laptops and personal digital assistants (PDAs).
Tensing SPY Mobile GIS is a tool that promises to allow field staff to review, analyze and change up to date data in the field. It extends GIS capabilities to crews in the field and gives them access to entire mapping systems on laptop, pen, tablet computers and PDAs. Data is provided to the crews by extracting data from any corporate GIS database via an extremely fast one-to-one conversion tool that simplifies the presentation of the data. Tensing SPY Mobile GIS allows the customer to define the same application regardless of hardware platform.
