LorikSoftware: Cartographic Generalization in Malaysia

April 30, 2013, Montreuil, France – Lorienne SA supplier of LorikSoftware, a comprehensive suite of application for map production automation today announced an agreement with DGD-JUPEM, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; the national defense geographic agency in Malaysia. Lorienne will provide DGD with a complete pilot-project to evaluate a real cartographic generalization workflow based on JUPEM databases and specific DGD requirements.

Specifically, Lorienne will be integrating LorikSoftware component with some customization and setup to demonstrate the quality and speed of cartographic generalization process with the own DGD and/or JUPEM sets of database and geographic information. The purpose of the pilot-project is to define the level of quality and the overall performance of this new cost effective workflow and therefore evaluate its deployment across the DGD production department.

“Lorienne was capable to answer all the issues and technical details to launch such a project,” Director of Information Development Section of DGD. “In addition, Lorienne was able to design a very quick demo with our own database within less than 3 days and resulting in a very good confidence to the final operational result.”

“To be successful in today’s world mapping production, Lorienne needs to provide the highest standard of performance with its software and complementary services.” said Jean-Pascal Butté, International Business Development Manager at Lorienne. “Our technology is designed to uncover valuable customer benefits and enables the whole map production teams to measure efficiently the value added of LorikSoftware within their daily duties while helping to better control map production investments.”

LorikSoftware 3.1: Automating mapping production

Marking its presence at the GITEX tradeshow in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (October 9th to 13th, 2011), Lorienne will be introducing a new version of its map production software suite: LorikSoftware 3.1. This version introduces a large number of improvements and innovations providing greater flexibility and better efficiency in producing any kind of maps. Once again, Lorienne has enhanced its technological offer by introducing all-encompassing operational mapping functionalities featuring the powerful integration of digital terrain models used in creating contours, spot elevations and automated shading.

LorikSoftware is now available in a native 64-bit version, which provides significantly increased performance while doing away with the limitations pertaining to 32-bit systems. As a result, extremely large volumes of data on the scale of a country or an entire continent in multiple scales may be processed with optimal output.

“Given the democratisation in geolocation applications, the production of mapping content has become a key strategic issue. LorikSoftware can help you control production costs without having to sacrifice either the quality or the appropriateness of the information,” explains Lorienne CEO Jean-Paul Dehette.

Thus the LorikSoftware environment provides tools to create any kind of maps, whether topographical, city maps or road maps, which can be applied to traditional printed maps as well as to Internet or mobile devices like iPhone, iPad and others.
