Boulder, CO – Vexcel Imaging today introduces its high quality and up-to-date aerial image subscription for government agencies. The cloud-based image solution, now available via subscription service, saves state and local government a significant amount of time and money by making it fast and simple to acquire up-to-date, concise, ultra high-resolution imagery and leverage it organization-wide into critical location intelligence.
Government agencies face many challenges like supporting Smart Community initiatives; providing mission-critical information during emergencies; and ameliorating geospatial data hosting and procurement. Outdated and hard to access geospatial data acquired per department is not a viable option, said Erik Jorgensen, CEO of Vexcel Imaging. Vexcel's imagery solution now makes it possible for small cities to large states to access detailed imagery that covers entire jurisdictions and is refreshed regularly and predictably.
In addition to 3 resolution vertical, orthorectified imagery, the subscription service also includes 45-degree oblique images, near-infrared nadirs and derivative 3D data products such as digital terrain models, digital surface models and point clouds, making it easy for organizations to integrate rich location information into their tools and workflows, stated Rob Agee, vice president of business development at Vexcel Imaging. For example, users can easily integrate GIS vector data over geo-referenced aerial imagery to provide enhanced analytics, such as building change detection or basemap maintenance. Fast and easy access to the extensive dataset covering entire states and counties and is made possible through Vexcel's adoption of Esri ArcGIS Image Services as well as standard application program interfaces (APIs) methods.
Vexcel Imaging is currently demonstrating its aerial image library at the Esri User Conference Expo, booth number 119, San Diego Convention Center. To learn more, visit www.vexcel-imaging.com.
