GeoMedia Viewer Now Available for Download!

Posted by jeffhobbs on May 6, 2009

In the way old news section of the blog, it was brought to my attention a while ago that you can now download the GeoMedia Viewer from the Intergraph web site. For a long time, you had to make a request from product support and then Intergraph would send you a CD with GeoMedia Viewer on it. As of late last year or early this year that changed. You can now download it from Intergraph Support site. Please note, although it’s on the Intergraph’s support site, I do NOT believe you need to login to download. So, if you’re looking for a tool that will do any of the following:

  • Read a GeoMedia/GM Pro workspace
  • Connect to Oracle Spatial and SQL Server
  • Have the same look and feel as GeoMedia and GeoMedia Pro
  • Free

You’re definitely in luck. I’d encourage you to download it and give it a try. Please note that if you’re going to install GeoMedia Viewer on a machine already running GeoMedia and/or GeoMedia Pro, I believe Intergraph recommends you install the least functional piece of software first. In other words, if you’re going to run (not sure why you would want to) GeoMedia, GeoMedia Viewer, and GeoMedia Pro all on the same machine, you’d want to first install GeoMedia Viewer, then install GeoMedia Std, and finally install GeoMedia Pro. If you don’t follow this pattern, you might find that some of your functionality is lost.

From the GeoMedia Viewer site:

GeoMedia Viewer is an easy to use, FREE GIS software application for desktop viewing and distribution of geospatial data. It allows an organization to maximize the value of its geospatial data by extending availability to novice users who wouldn’t otherwise have access because of the barriers of purchasing and learning how to use a full GIS software application.

      Hi – not sure what you’re after. If you’re looking for a copy of GeoMedia Pro, you’d need to talk to your salesperson. Let me know if you need help contacting someone. If you’re looking for a geoworkspace, feel free to contact me via email and I’ll send you the US Sample GWS. But it seems like you’d have that if you’ve ever installed GeoMedia.

    I tried to download and install the geomedia viewer software but it says it is only a patch that is being installed without the actual program. Am I missing something over here as a pre-requisite for installing the downloaded setup?

      Unfortunately you can’t download the GM Viewer off of the Intergraph site. You’ll need to file a support request and ask for the Viewer that way. Can’t say I agree with Intergraph’s decision here.
