California, USA, 01 May 2007: ESRI is organizing a free online seminar on how effectively an ArcGIS Image Server 9.2 works on georeferenced imagery in Web GIS and LAN platform. Introduction to ArcGIS Image Server 9.2 will be launched on ESRI’s Training and Education Web site (www.esri.com/training) on May 24, 2007.
Georeferenced imagery is a valuable component of GIS applications.Imagery can be difficult to work with because it involves huge files and requires tremendous amounts of processing to get it into a usable form. ArcGIS Image Server 9.2 solves these problems by giving imagery providers the tools they need to publish and host their extensive imagery holdings while giving GIS users direct access to those holdings over the Web or LAN.
The live training seminar will also demonstrate how an Image Server works in providing superior-quality imagery. This is possible because Image Server can perform any sequence of image processing steps while the image request is being fulfilled, based on the particular request. Since Image Server can provide many variations from a single source image, maintaining multiple versions is no longer necessary.
