Now that the dust has settled and we’re back in the UK after attending the 20th InterGeo in Berlin last week, we’ve had a chance to take stock of what was an incredibly interesting and successful event.
We hardly had time to breath at our stand this year, which was in part thanks to a few newsworthy pieces that hit the media in the days running up to the event.
Firstly, we were previewing V2.11 of the PDF3D suite ( PDF3D-ReportGen and SDK ). With over 17,000 visitors eager to explore new applications for managing and sharing data, the interest in our products was incredible; we almost weren’t prepared for the numbers of visitors keen to experience the new geospatial features in our product demonstrations.
Secondly, three major exhibitors at InterGeo – Zoller + Frohlich, Carlson and Pix4D – were showcasing their new software, all of which have integrated our technology to offer 3D PDF conversion features to their users. It was good for interested developers to see, first-hand, how easy PDF3D-SDK was to use and build into other software.
Everything at the show focused on geoinformation and the digital world in some way, which is evidence of just how big data technology has become for those working in surveying and land management. According to the visitor survey just released, the most popular topic with visitors this year was GIS software, which certainly confirmed our experience at our booth.
It is clearly a very exciting time to be involved in geoinformation. In addition to us, the event was definitely a platform for some major software launches by the industry’s big names. The conference and exhibition rooms were full and the footfall past our stand was constant.
We made some great new contacts at the show so the next few days will be spent following up on all of those. We’re already to looking forward to next year’s event!
We’ll be publishing a detailed update on the features inside PDF3D V2.11 shortly but in the meantime, if you want to see what all the fuss was about for yourself, please contact Dan O’Connor to arrange a live demo to your screen.
