MapMart introduces On-Demand Geospatial Imagery Service solution

Denver, USA, September 20, 2007: The MapMart division of IntraSearch, Inc. introduced MapMart On-Demand, an enterprise solution to facilitate the storage, retrieval, and automatic ordering of geospatial raster data. As an ESRI Business Partner, MapMart has been selected to be the provider of bundled solutions using ESRI’s ArcGIS Image Server. MapMart On-Demand provides a single online interface where users across the enterprise have instant access to their organization’s own geospatial raster data as well as the entire library of worldwide MapMart data.

Powered by the new ArcGIS Image Server from ESRI, Inc., MapMart On-Demand is ideal for organizations that don’t want to dedicate expensive internal IT resources to manage geospatial imagery. MapMart On-Demand hosts, organizes, and maintains the organization’s data on an internet-accessible, fully protected server. ArcGIS Image Server provides standards-based search and retrieval functions so that end users can find and download the data they need from within their GIS and CAD applications via the Web.

Terabytes of digital mapping data from these MapMart libraries are available through MapMart On-Demand, including:

  • NAIP colour U.S. imagery
  • U.S. DOQQs and world topographical maps
  • Landsat 7 satellite imagery
  • Digital elevation models
  • QuickBird satellite imagery

    MapMart On-Demand Ordering System offers users a robust online system designed to boost the efficiency of purchases and reduce redundant acquisitions. From the map interface, the user can search for available datasets covering the area of interest and have the imagery loaded into their Image Server. If the desired area of interest is not covered by current aerial photography, MapMart On-Demand allows the user to place a custom order for new imagery right online. The system enables anyone in the organization to track the collection and fulfillment process online.

    “We created MapMart On-Demand to allow organizations to get the most value from their new and existing geospatial raster data,” said MapMart President, Mike Platt. “MapMart On-Demand will become the cornerstone of enterprise GIS strategies for many organizations.”

    “The value of MapMart On-Demand is that users can search their own internal archives for just the right dataset. If they don’t find it there, they can see if the map data is offered by a commercial source through MapMart. And if they still can’t find it, they can place an order for a custom acquisition – all from a single online interface on their desktop,” said Platt.
