Analytics | Software

Don’t compromise:
Use professional software, innovative data analytics AND save costs

Making good use of multi-spectral, stereo remote sensing imagery or SAR data requires complex algorithms and expertise. Over the past two decades, multipurpose remote sensing and GIS software were developed to help experts in their tasks to provide the most reliable and meaningful geoinformation to their customers.

However, for companies that make only occasional use of such software, amortization takes a long time (if it can ever be achieved); in addition to licensing cost, such software requires expensive training of specialists, as well as installation, maintenance and IT support. And that is assuming the necessary know-how and personnel is available at all. It also may require upgrades to the user organization’s IT system (be it in research, in private industry, or in government) that are cost-prohibitive.

More often than not, users either have to resort to sub-optimal tools and solutions, which inevitably result in sub-par outcomes; or they try to develop their own, proprietary solutions which comes with their own set of challenges. And at worst, essential information that might have been gained from imagery which was acquired at great cost might be missed - leading to decisions based on incomplete or insufficient information.

Let’s look at a practical example: Governments initiate flight campaigns for aerial photogrammetry in annual or multi-annual cycles. And they only use software to process the photogrammetric data for a few weeks after each campaign. In most cases, the software remains unused for the majority of the licensing term, and often must be updated when the next flight campaign is launched.

Save costs with Software as a Service on CloudEO

Using pay-per-use models on CloudEO helps governments to save costs and releases burdens from their IT personnel. These same pay-per-use models also enable small and medium-sized companies to scale any production component that relies on remote sensing and imagery quite easily. All they need is acquiring the licenses to run the equipment that they own - for everything else, they can quickly extend their workflow to CloudEO workbench, which gives them access to a remote sensing workstation - without the need to invest in additional permanent licences and IT.

Simplify your work with GeoAnalytics from CloudEO and CloudEO Partners

You can draw on innovative CloudEO partners, who offer analytics for specific tasks to further simplify the geoproduction workflow for all, and who drive GeoSharing on CloudEO. The offering of Analytics through CloudEO and its partners is largely growing and covers all aspects defined by Earth Science Data Analytics (Source: Federation of Earth Science Information Partners):

  • Data Preparation – Preparing heterogeneous data so that they can be jointly analyzed
  • Data Reduction – Correcting, ordering and simplifying data in support of analytic objectives
  • Data Analysis – Applying techniques/methods to derive results

Customers can use these GeoAnalytics within their production workflow on CloudEO, or simply request them for data analysis on certain data sets through CloudEO Store or dedicated Apps.
