To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the first implementation of the OpenGIS standard for geodatabases, Dr. Martin Huber, Managing Director of Condesys Consulting, organized an online event attended by esteemed guests and industry experts.
Dr. Nadine Alameh, the president of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), congratulated the achievement via E-Mail and praised the progress made in geographic information technology over the past 25 years. Prof. Josef Strobl, the founder of the UNIGIS curriculum, recognized Martin Huber's invaluable contributions to GIS education and his work on OpenGIS, geodatabases, and GIS interoperability.
Dr. Huber shared his personal journey, extending the frontiers of GIS technology, for example during his time at IBM and his research in dynamic spatial modeling at various universities. This led to the development of the "GeoTask Server" 25 years ago and the establishment of GeoTask AG and later Condesys Consulting GmbH. Through these ventures, innovative GIS 4.0 applications were created, seamlessly integrating geospatial data processing with standard IT systems for efficient asset lifecycle and environmental management.
The development of BryteCube, a no-code platform for comprehensive space-time data management, was a significant outcome of Dr. Huber's journey. BryteCube reduces the need for complex coding, empowering individuals and organizations to quickly bring their ideas to life. This disruptive technology enables a greater focus on addressing real-world challenges and achieves meaningful impact in less time.
Since 2018, notable customers, including infrastructure operators and environmental agencies, have embraced BryteCube, leveraging its capabilities to effortlessly create process-supporting web GIS database applications. Examples of successful solutions implemented with BryteCube were presented by
The event concluded with the launch of coordination.cloud, a nationwide planning and construction coordination platform. Since June 2000, the City of Bern has successfully used their online application, "Coordination in Public Space," to foster collaboration among various stakeholders and achieved substantial savings. Now, Condesys Consulting extends this platform to the entire country, allowing utilities, engineering offices, and authorities to share and exchange projects and promote cost-efficient planning, coordination, construction and maintenance in cities and rural areas alike.
