Army selects InterMAPhics as its Mapping Engine for JBC-P

March 2011
The US Army has selected InterMAPhics as its Mapping Engine for JBC-P. After a successful evaluation, the US Army's Software Engineering Directorate (SED), Huntsville, Alabama has selected Gallium's InterMAPhics product as the mapping engine for the Joint Battle Command - Platform (JBC-P) program. InterMAPhics allows application developers and software engineers to create high performance, geospatial based user interfaces for mission critical applications. The applications developed with InterMAPhics are intended to be provided across a myriad of platforms, operating systems and configurations, leveraging InterMAPhics platform independent software strategy.


InterMAPhics is a performance optimized, high performance SDK for real time 2D and 3D situation displays used for the development of custom user interface and real-time mapping applications.

Situational Display
Raster, vector, imagery and terrain maps are supported and can be visualized using advanced overlays and effects, allowing you to produce a highly responsive and accurate representation of an operational picture.

High Performance
Built with our optimized run-time engine to support fast update rates, with a high number of objects and ensuring a reliable dynamic display well suited for mission critical systems.

Reduced Implementation Time and Effort
InterMAPhics provides a purpose built, object oriented API that is available in multiple languages and compatible with multiple platforms. GUI's, appearance and behavior are customizable, allowing developers to focus on unique system requirements.

Industry TrustedInterMAPhics has been deployed on over 125 mission-critical applications around the world. Our solutions for geospatial display management have been proven successful in major aerospace, defense and security applications as well as critical systems for commercial aviation and air traffic control.

Current release information

  • Releases for Windows, Solaris, Linux. Java versions using JDK 1.6
  • Military Symbology Support including support of MIL-STD-2525B Symbology - Full support of Appendixes A, B, D & E. Most of Appendix C symbology is found in the other appendices and can be displayed using the corresponding SIDC code.
  • JPEG2000 Support - Native rendering of JPEG2000 image data into an optimized archive layer or viewport
  • MrSID Support - Native support of MrSID files at user selected area and zoom and levels
  • Expanded ESRI Support - Ability to display DoD UTM encoded shapefile data. Support added to use the database information as vector attribute information to support extraction themes.
  • Enhanced Vector Map Appearance - Support added to display complex lines, areas and symbols which represent common map locations such as airports, cities, various road classifications, road markers, geographical areas using easily recognized attributes.
  • Improved Raster Appearance - Improved the control over raster map color selection to control the number of colors used to display raster images
  • Improved Support for NITF and NSIF - Added the ability to render JPEG compressed image segments and the ability to access text information stored in text segments
  • Runtime optimized imagery - Pre-processing of TIFF, GeoTIFF and JPEG2000 images will create optimized map sources allowing for better performance while panning and zooming.
