US: Hexagon Geospatial has announced a new partnership with CloudEO, one of the leading providers of cloud-based geo collaboration platforms. Through this partnership, CloudEO will launch a commercial marketplace for geo-data and applications.
CloudEO will leverage key technologies from the Geospatial 2014 portfolio, including ERDAS IMAGINE and ERDAS APOLLO. CloudEO will also develop a new marketplace that will provide a unique portal for the creation and interpretation for geospatial data. The pilot program aims to dramatically lower the cost of creating new geospatial services by making data widely available through a cloud-based system.
In addition to offering a marketplace for buying and selling geo-data and applications, the pilot will offer a scalable geo-processing platform for developing and distributing geospatial data and services from Hexagon Geospatial – all based on pay-per-use model.
