With the increasing spatial, spectral and temporal resolution of satellite and aerial imagery, there is an accompanying increase in storage requirements and processing capacity to effectively manage that data. There are considerable challenges to managing and hosting your own spatial data, despite the reduced cost of computers and storage space. There are now cloud-based solutions for spatial data storage, manipulation, and retrieval that remove the capital expense of hardware purchases as well as the burden of maintenance. The flexible capacity of the cloud allows users to maximize customer satisfaction and employee productivity while minimizing cost.
Cloud-based content management solutions remove data storage, maintenance and integration drudge work from day to day activities. Relying on an entity that is solely focused on hosting and spatial data services increases spatial data management efficiency while freeing up staff to focus on the company’s mission.
