When location, time, and mission context matter
There is one word that best describes the solutions provided by Image Matters…innovation. We emphasize innovation and technical excellence in all of our approaches and offerings. We are best known for our pioneering R&D and problem-solving skills, with an outstanding staff to thank. Image Matters has assembled an impressive team of experts in Web, geospatial, Semantic-AI, analytics, and Cloud technology and applications. Our analysts, engineers, and scientists are well-qualified to tackle some of the most daunting problems facing users of information technology, such as information overload, fusion, and machine-understanding, in a world of vast volumes of inconsistent, disparate, and non-integrated information resources.
Image Matters is at the forefront of standards and interoperability
Pressed by the need for greater unification and seamless interoperations, interoperability continues to be a major challenge for most enterprises. IT leadership constantly seeks better solutions to tackle the “final interoperability mile”. With the rapid pace of changes in sources and methods, fast-evolving data processing technology, and agile development dominating the landscape, emerging solutions often fall short of meeting enterprise interoperability and e-Governance objectives. Interoperability is both an art and a science. Expert skills, discipline, and extensive experience are required to get it right, and to have it achieved consistently across the enterprise.
Collaboration is key to achieving successful standards
Image Matters understands the importance of using well-vetted standards to achieve interoperability. We don’t just use the specifications developed by others…we are specification development experts. Modern specifications must be updated as technology advances. Image Matters plays an active role in the standards community. Our Managing Partner, Kurt Buehler, co-founded a prominent international standards organization in 1994, Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). Working closely with OGC, Image Matters honed its specification development skills by completing 77 engineering task orders. This extensive expertise is reflected in our standards-based service platforms, which benefit from enhanced openness, adaptability, extensibility, componentization, distributed processing and platform independence. We have further sharpened our specification skills by developing data and service specifications for DoD, DoI, USACE, FGDC, and others. Image Matters has innovated in the development of next-generation “declarative specifications” for model-driven architectures, which are crucial to next-generation machine understanding. Standards must be kept aligned with emerging new technologies and approaches.
