Geospatial imagery – more than a backdrop. Traditionally imagery has been seen by GIS users as a background to provide context to the vector data.
However, as imagery is becoming more accessible and cheaper, GIS professional are realising the value imagery can bring into their GIS projects. The ArcGIS platform includes different levels of technology , from ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS for Server, through to ArcGIS Online, they provide GIS professionals with a range of powerful geoprocessing and image analysis tools, complemented with state of the art on-the-fly image processing technologies and powerful data dissemination tools.
ArcGIS has become a powerful image processing platform and this session has focused on the key capabilities of the ArcGIS for Desktop, ArcGIS for Server and ArcGIS Online for image analysis, image serving and image consumption.
We have demonstrated the new tools and improvements introduced in the ArcGIS 10.2 software suite. These new tools and raster processing functions will help both image analysts and regular GIS users to discover the true potential of the geospatial imagery and allow them to derive the information hidden behind the pixel values, to help make important decisions.
ArcGIS is a strong imagery platform be-it Desktop, Web Services or Online. Providing new concepts in image processing, dynamic image processing, very fast image processing and massively scalable image processing in the server environment.
