Boundless Awarded Certificate of Networthiness by U.S. Army for Desktop GIS Software

ST. LOUIS – Boundless, the leader in open and scalable GIS, today announced that its Boundless Desktop™ solution has received the U.S. Army Certificate of Networthiness (CoN), an accreditation that ensures the product meets Federal Department of Defense (DoD) and Army guidelines, regulations, and requirements. The CoN verifies compliance with stringent DoD and Army requirements for security, sustainability, and usability.

Boundless Desktop is a native, cross-platform desktop GIS built upon proven open source software, including QGIS, PgAdmin, Qt Designer, and GDAL/OGR. The product builds maps, manages data, models and analyzes, and disseminates results with users globally. Desktop is used to conduct geospatial analysis to include creation of common operating pictures, route and area analysis, and other geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) operations. Desktop integrates government and geographic standards for cartographic styles and rules, combines and models spatial data in ways that generate new insights through workflow modeling, provides analytical tools and scripts for terrain and data analysis, and provides access to various open source formats for data and product sharing.

Boundless Solutions for Federal Government
Federal agencies are collecting and storing more location data and imagery than ever before, and timely and accurate geospatial intelligence is critical to making decisions that impact safety, security, and quality of life. Public accountability means that agencies must be mindful of directing costs away from necessary tasks.

Boundless provides federal agencies with enterprise-grade, fully supported versions of proven open source software along with reliable, expert help from feature development to production support. Interoperability is built right in, ensuring that geospatial data and analysis is accessible across agencies and divisions. Open source technology offers the flexibility needed to leverage geospatial data now and when needs or demands change. Expenses are predictable and manageable, freeing resources for mission-critical operations.

Industry Statements
“The use of automated data analysis and analytical tools is essential for developing situational awareness and a common operating picture of battlespace in our warfighter missions,” said Jason Lee Smith, Security Specialist, Counter Explosive Hazards Center, U.S. Army Fort Leonard Wood. “Timely and accurate geospatial intelligence provided by Boundless allows us to make mission-critical decisions that impact safety and security, and the software’s flexibility and interoperability means that we can consistently rely on it both in our day-to-day operations and when there are spikes of activity.”

“Boundless is committed to delivering open and scalable GIS solutions that empower our users to understand the world around them through geospatial intelligence,” said Andy Dearing, CEO, Boundless. “The Army CoN assures that Boundless Desktop is safe, sustainable and easy for federal agencies to use, and we’re proud to have achieved this validation for our solutions in the federal government space.”
