The Geospatial Repository and Data (GRiD) Management System is an advanced geospatial database for the storage, processing, visualization, and dissemination of three-dimensional (3D) pointcloud data (e.g., Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR)) and associated geospatial products, as well as Elevation Models (i.e., Digital Terrain Models (DTMs), Digital Surface Models (DSMs)).
GRiD is a unique combination of open-source software, geospatial libraries (both community and government), frameworks, format specifications and standards, and spatial databases (Oracle Spatial 12c) which provides a platform for advanced geospatial data management capabilities. GRiD is optimized for geospatial data and supports both the data provider and the data user in various ways.
GRiD is the National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG) enterprise storage and dissemination solution for 3D geospatial and digital terrain elevation data. GRiD, a multi-network domain and cloud scalable architecture, provides timely access to relevant data for decision makers, warfighters, and first responders.
GRiD is a geospatial data management system that enables efficient utilization of very large, complex 3D datasets, while minimizing bandwidth usage. GRiD fulfills the requirements of data providers while supporting users operating in both desktop and mobile environments.
