Geospatial Data Providers Segment Data Products and Continue to Innovate Beyond Just Raw Data #esriuc

The big four data providers, including GeoEye, are no longer playing second fiddle to geospatial software solutions vendors. They are innovating in ways that go beyond simply selling raw satellite imagery or raw street centerlines. From points of interest to live traffic to LiDAR to SAR, airborne sensors to building models, you name it, these companies are rushing headlong into selling all kinds of geospatial data and packaging derivative products in ways that are truly market-driven. All of these companies offered something unique but you have to spend time with each to dig into their special sauce…

GeoEye‘s play in offering solutions has taken a different tack than that of DG. The company released information for the Esri UC that provided information about Esri Enterprise License Agreements for small municipal and county governments, public safety agencies and utilities that enable them to put an ArcGIS® system in place. Within that agreement is the GeoEye Image Pack which has a three-year term license and delivers the sub-meter, high-resolution imagery products. GeoEye stated in a press release that “new collection and event options are also available if no archive data exists or if a customer is responding to a crisis or planning for a major event.” The solution pack includes GeoEye-1, IKONOS, and aerial imagery from MJ Harden, a GeoEye company. The objective is to target local governments under tight budget constraints.
