Redlands, California, USA, 18 December 2006 – ESRI’s new solution for image distribution, ArcGIS Image Server 9.2, is now available. The product provides the ability to serve and process large volumes of imagery enterprise-wide.
ArcGIS Image Server is integrated with ArcGIS Server, which allows the data to be distributed to Web-based, mobile, and OGC-compliant clients. In addition, users can publish seamless mosaicked image services from multiple image datasets directly to applications. These services can be published in different projections, enhancements, and representations, eliminating data redundancy and extra storage requirements. Metadata containing important image information such as acquisition date and sensor attributes is accessible.
ArcGIS Image Server offers the following features: Open access from various GIS and non-GIS clients (e.g., CAD); On-demand, dynamic server-based processing for image display; Scalability that supports extensive volumes of imagery as well as many users; Integration with ArcGIS Server for data distribution to Web, mobile, and OGC-compliant clients; Quick and seamless access to imagery and associated metadata.
ArcGIS Image Server is particularly useful to users who need to deploy imagery enterprise-wide to a variety of clients, as well as those who perform dynamic imagery processing for better image visualization. Users can publish GIS-ready imagery directly to a large number of clients. In addition, server-based processing enables imagery to be quickly published as multiple image services.
Users can add capabilities to ArcGIS Image Server using extensions. The Orthorectification extension allows users to dynamically orthorectify raw imagery using image properties and an elevation surface. With the Seamline extension, users can create and edit seamlines for overlapping image mosaics. For more information about ArcGIS Image Server 9.2, visit www.esri.com/imageserver
