Boundless partners are an important part of spreading the depth and breadth of our software around the world. In this ongoing series, we will be featuring some of our partners and the ways they are expanding the reach of our Spatial IT solutions.
“Since becoming Boundless partners, we have been able to take advantage of next generation spatial technology. We find the public agencies and private businesses we work with to be increasingly interested in cost effective, professional open-source solutions, moving away from old and tired, closed products,” says Diogo Vitorino, principal of Addition, a Lisbon–based Boundless Partner.
Founded in 1998, Addition builds online information systems, sophisticated websites and mobile applications for large government efforts initiated by organizations such as National Registry for the Portugal Environment Agency and Portugal’s Institute for the Conservation of Nature and Forest. The company’s services include infrastructure management, state-of-the-art web user interfaces, and informed IT consulting. In order to achieve this, Addition relies greatly on many of the components that make up OpenGeo Suite, including PostGIS, GeoServer, and OpenLayers.
Addition’s portfolio continues to rapidly develop, and the company has recently completed projects for Australia’s largest water utility, Sydney Water; the US Environmental Protection Agency; the Portuguese Environment Agency and multiple water utilities in Portugal. Addition has also created public portals for the Portugal Ministry of Education, they were also instrumental in creating the Eurocean website, which harmonizes data from marine research agencies across Europe, and they are the purveyors of Baseform, an open and collaborative platform for networked utility infrastructures.
“The ability to collaborate on and to discuss upcoming solutions directly with the main developers of open-source projects such as PostGIS or OpenLayers is invaluable,” continues Vitorino.
