EarthScan Network Inc., a provider of distribution and technology services for the remote sensing industry, has announced the creation of an ImageCommerce* Storefront for
DigitalGlobe. The website provides an online capability for their agriculture customers to define an area of interest, select specific AgroWatch products, and then receive and manipulate soil and crop maps. EarthScan is also reselling AgroWatch products to extend its current agricultural offering.
” We are pleased to have EarthScan join our team as the first nationwide reseller of AgroWatch products,” says Greg Knoblauch, DigitalGlobe’s Vice President, Agriculture. “EarthScan’s solution set, existing client base, and their overall understanding of agricultural markets will greatly facilitate the adoption of image-based solutions by the agricultural community.” “AgroWatch products help Ag businesses and their grower-clients through quick delivery subscriptions of unique information products that can be reliably incorporated into existing management practices” says Kory Smith, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing of EarthScan.
“EarthScan created our online infrastructure allowing our end users to order and take delivery of our AgroWatch product line without the requirement of additional hardware, GIS or image processing software,” says John Ahlrichs, Director of Agriculture Marketing and Product Development. “Online availability of images 24-48 hours after they have been collected overcomes one of the major obstacles to adoption of remotely sensed imagery by the ag- community and will be a significant differentiator of our AgroWatch product line.”
