NSG Port Solution Core Components

Buried Utilities
The NSG Port Solution’s most visible components are its software components. Our solution leverages the benefits of several layered products from world technology leaders Microsoft, Esri, and Latitude Geographics, then adds our own layer of ports-specific tools and extensions. Because NSGIS manages the entire solution, we are able to keep the various component synchronized, deliver maximum functionality with as little reliance on custom software and as much reuse of COTS (Commercial off the Shelf) tools as is possible. The result is a highly focused, yet extraordinarily scalable solution to meet ports’ initial and eventual needs.
