Orion Technology Inc. has formed a partnership with Sky-Shine Corporation Sdn. Bhd., a firm specializing in GIS development and mapping services, surveying and mapping systems, and environmental and laboratory instrumentation in Malaysia.

Sky-Shine offers a full range of geospatial information technology services, from data conversion to application development and implementation. It serves both public- and private-sector agencies, and provides services in GIS system development and implementation, digital mapping and data acquisition, data conversion, and remote sensing.

Sky-Shine is the distributor of Digital Globe’s QuickBird high-resolution satellite imagery product and provides value-added services to the remote sensing industry in the region. In addition, Sky-Shine is also a distributor for GeoExpress from LizardTech, a geospatial software package for managing, distributing, and accessing complex geospatial imagery. As an ESRI business partner in Malaysia, Sky-Shine serves clients in various sectors including government, private, and educational institutions.

“We are committed to exceeding customer expectations for quality and prompt delivery. Being a partner of Orion, our vision becomes more global, and more focused on system and data integration. Our ‘GeoWeb’ initiative, powered by OnPoint, will be the platform of geo services within Malaysia,” noted Zalizan Mohd Salleh, technical manager of Sky-Shine.

By using Orion’s OnPoint Web-GIS solution, Sky-Shine will enhance its services pertaining to spatial data access and solution integration, for both their existing clients and new clients in the region. OnPoint comes with an administration tool, providing a simple user interface to create Configuration Files that define views. The user can easily change the appearance, functionality, data content, and security of OnPoint. OnPoint allows users to publish their GIS data quickly and securely over the Web and connect to any spatial and nonspatial data throughout their organization, turning their Web-GIS into a true enterprise solution.

“OnPoint continues to gain further acceptance throughout the world as the standard for Web-GIS. Sky-Shine is a well-established firm that shares our commitment to delivering quality, leading edge solutions to clients. Sky-Shine has significant opportunities to leverage OnPoint in the Malaysian market, and we look forward to working with them in this regard,” commented Faizal Hasham, director of Sales and Marketing at Orion.
