The Geological Survey of Norway makes use of Catalyst’s new GeoImaging Tools for ArcGIS to reduce the cost of mapping the bedrock in the Rogaland region of Norway.

Catalyst’s GeoImaging Tools provides ArcGIS users with a suite of tools for processing and analyzing imagery in the GIS. Catalyst is introducing a suite of modules that integrate directly into ArcGIS for achieving common image related tasks.

    NGU is an agency within the Norwegian Trade and Development department and is its central national institution for information about bedrock, mineral resources, soils and groundwater.

        Just as the NGU was getting ready to abandon the idea of using the ASTER imagery, Nils Erik Jørgensen from Terranor ( – Catalyst reseller based in Norway ) contacted the NGU to discuss new technology introduced in the marketplace by Catalyst. The NGU knew about Catalyst’s strong reputation for providing rigorous and automated multi-satellite sensor support, and was delighted to hear that Catalyst had developed an extension to ArcGIS 10 – this meant there was the potential to implement a more streamlined workflow.
