ER Mapper rolls out new software for Shell

The Netherlands, 25 May 2006: ER Mapper announced the rollout of a new software solution for Shell Exploration and Production that makes Shell’s twelve terabyte archive of satellite imagery available to users throughout the world. The solution was built by ER Mapper’s Enterprise Services Team and features the Image Web Server product, which uses patented image compression and serving technologies to provide a fast and responsive system, even when serving very large images to many users.

Using a web browser, users simply zoom to a particular location to see the list of images available for that area. They can then ask for information about the images, examine them, compare them with others, and if desired, bring them directly into desktop applications like ER Mapper’s image processing product, Microsoft Word or ESRI’s ArcGIS product.
