In cloud computing, most things happen in your web browser. Kognifai is no different: Your data files, virtual machine (VM), and processing software are all located on servers hosted in the Kognifai cloud. This enables you and your colleagues to access data and work simultaneously, sharing the workload and adding valuable insight.

The Kongsberg EM™ systems can be enabled to send data in real time, or at set times directly to the cloud, making it possible to monitor progress while collecting data. This information can be distributed to anyone, anywhere with access rights. In this way, real-time data is made available for use in many applications and products.

Strong partnerships

KONGSBERG has a strong partnership with ESRI, the global leader in spatial analytics, and companies supporting the ESRI workflow, including Earth Analytic, specialists in science-based design, and Geodata, specializing in the visualization of information. Our partners provide end users with an almost endless range of online mapping and GIS functionality. With Mapping Cloud, these applications are available directly in your web browser.

Upload locally – Simply mount your hard disk on your local PC and use the File Upload functionality to copy all files. The upload time depends on the network speed and file size.

File manager – Directories in storage are mounted as regular hard drives so you can access the data directly in your VM. You can allow other users to read and write for easy sharing, and you can archive data to reduce the cost of storage significantly with just one click. 

Processing data – Start your VM and run your regular PC processing application. All processing takes place in the Mapping Cloud environment, making the results directly available to your colleagues.

Distributed files – Storing the data in the cloud makes it easy to distribute information online. Using the File Manager, you can easily give access to selected users.

Real-time data – Data received in real time is stored and available for processing and displayed immediately. EM data has such a good quality straight out of the box that reliable products can be made right away.
