  1. ImageLinks RasterWare Appliances™ Images Your Way

  2. What is RasterWare™ Technology? Advanced software providing “on demand” processing and immediate delivery of custom imagery User specifies Area of Interest and final output specifications Non destructive, parameter driven, single resample creation and delivery of custom image products (i.e. orthos, mosaics, fusions, change detection, etc.) from original (raw) raster datasets Data products can be tiled, reprojected, resampled, resized, etc. Automated processing & turn-key solution -- installed as an intra or internet web based appliance Final product immediately delivered directly into the end users application

  3. Geospatial Product Generation Traditional Workflow Customer Requirement Collect & Load Content Satellite, Aerial, Radar, DEM, control Error Correction • Registration with ground control Initial Product Generation • Reformat & reproject data • Orthorectify, Tonal Balance • Each step requires resampling Final Processing & Formatting • Fusion, Mosaic, color enhancement, • each step requires resampling Output to Media Customer Loads into their System New Customer Requirement (Restart from the beginning) RasterWare Workflow Collect & Load Content Satellite, Aerial, Radar, DEM, control, vectors, error correction (registration if required) and GeoTIFF’s Stage to RasterWare Appliance • Native format support & projection independence • n-band radiometry support, Total Balancing, Histogram matching • Automated, model based Orthorectification with terrain correction • Reproject, Resample, Resize • Fusion (cross sensor products), Change Detection, Mosaicking • Non-destructive, parameter driven processing (single resampling) from native data to final product • Produces & delivers data bundles (imagery, elevation, vectors, etc) for the user specified AOI • Server based , scaleable, multiprocessor architecture • Web interface & XML API’s • Final product delivered directly into user application Multiple Customer Requirements Satisfied Immediately “on demand”

  4. Typical Implementation Environments A network which serves many users with disparate needs with a common set of data. The disparate requirements tend to be (a) projection/datum related or (b) custom product generation (change detection, mosaic, band selection, fusion, etc.) An application where a higher frequency of updated imagery would be beneficial such as agriculture or environmental monitoring - eliminates pre-generating products and enables more change detection options Workstation based analysis where users require “data bundles” (imagery, elevation, tin, vectors, etc.) and not just a picture  A production system to more efficiently generate products

  11. Default client interface solution installed with every RasterWare Appliance Shows the full functionality of the RasterWare technology Starting point for the customization of a new interface tailored to the individual user needs Sample Solution

  12. ArcIMS solutions are from PixSell, Inc. – an industry leader in the customization of ArcIMS Extends the capabilities of ArcIMS systems to be able to serve dynamically value-added products from raw data sources PixSell ArcIMS Solution

  13. Application solutions for the IRA don’t have to be web-based They can also be a client-side program or an extension to an application ArcView extension can be customizable to any IRA application solution. ArcView Extension

  14. Digital Raster Graphics (DRG) at a variety of scales (1:20K, 1:24K, 1:25K, 1:30K, 1:100K, 1:250K) are used as base maps for image registration This solution provides paperless maps on demand to production personnel for use in the image registration process. DRG Solution

  15. Uses Landsat “footprints” as the AOI for product identification and data retrieval Facilitates selecting DRGs, DOQs, or other basemaps for use in the registration process. Records previously used or rejected maps to expedite processing. Landsat Path/Row Solution

  16. An all-inclusive aerial-management system. Currently customized for the Airborne Data Systems (ADS) cameras and CitiPix products. Allows for interactive QA/QC, image selection or rejection, and output definition. Products include, “on-the-fly” creation of individual orthos or seamless tonally-balanced mosaics. Aerial Solution

  17. An airborne-hyperspectral data management and delivery system. Currently supports GER, PHILLS, Hymap, and Probe. Products include, “on-the-fly” creation of n-band orthos, copies of the “raw data, and seamless tonally-balanced mosaics. Hyperspectral Solution

  18. is dedicated to giving access to information about commercially available imagery to the public Hosted in Washington DC and is able to query the IRA in Melbourne, FL and in turn pull the browse imagery from EDC in Sioux Falls, SD. Earth-Info Distributive Site

  19. Provides methods to create fast and accurate Image Maps from satellite or aerial imagery and digitized maps. Targeted to the government for using National Technical Means (NTM) data such as ADRG, CADRG, CIB and NITF. OSSIM Solution
