Cloud Services - Geospatial Data Management made easy

A growing number of organizations increasingly depend on a disparate and sophisticated array of geospatial data to make the kinds of informed decisions upon which their operations depend. But it's not just the raw data these organizations are after - it's the mission-critical business intelligence hidden within it. Which is why at Astrium Services, we understand that the true measure of a commercial geospatial solution lies not merely in the precision, richness, and quality of the images generated by its satellites, but also in how easily the users of those images can access, share, process, and otherwise leverage the value they represent. After all, if an organization cannot adequately accommodate the growing volumes of geospatial data in its possession, if it struggles to find the right images when it most needs them, or if it is unable to easily process and mine that data for the operational intelligence most needed, then it is a geospatial 'solution' in name only.
