    In cloud computing context, data as a service (or DaaS) builds on the concept that the product (data in this case) can be provided on demand to the user regardless of geographic or organizational separation of provider and consumer. From the geospatial industry, popular services such as Google Maps, Google Earth, Bing Maps, Here Maps, ArcGIS Online maps are under this category. May Satellite Imagery providers are also taking this route and DigitalGlobe‘s GBDX falls into this category. Data as a service is also a driving factor beyond the usage of geospatial bigdata.
