It looks like some kind of IBM PC, I think I'm making out a silver IBM badge on the machine with the monitor. As to the software, I'm guessing some sort of database software? Probably proprietary, but maybe not?

Hard to tell, an awesome picture digitising and manipulating system for its time.
The monitor (from a IBM 5170) is not that remarkable, but the drawing tablet is, methinks.
There is a PC tower underneath the desk, but I would rather expect a VAX or SUN workstation in the background. The thing under the running monitor looks somewhat like a server rack to me.
