Satellites and aerial platforms are generating tremendous amounts of image data in ongoing global surveillance applications. This data typically needs to be stored for later sampling and analysis, and fidelity of this data is of utmost importance. Digital images must also be instantly accessible to a distributed network of human and computer analysts, and organizations are increasingly using cloud storage as a distribution point.
With images that are multiple-gigabyte in size, moving this data around the network is challenging and expensive. Pixspan addresses these applications with software that reduces the burden on on-site storage, helps upload images to the cloud, and facilitates network distribution to end-users. Pixspan supports multi-spectral formats of GeoTIFF, and works on the largest images that are being produced by today’s surveillance technologies.
Pixspan reduces Cloud Storage Costs, which makes Archiving in the Cloud a very cost effective option.
With Satellite Analysis, there are often large areas of the map that are not frequently visited. The images associated with these areas can be stored compressed, and then just-in-time delivered in full resolution when they are requested.
