Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012 -- Representatives from Frost & Sullivan, GeoEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEOY) and TerraGo® Technologies will present a webinar on Feb. 14 about the global commercial satellite imagery market and available cloud-based and geospatial collaboration technologies to help users more quickly and easily access, distribute and interact with complex maps and digital imagery.
The webinar, to be held at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Tuesday, Feb. 14, will feature Frost and Sullivan Research Analyst Daniel Longfield presenting the latest data for the global satellite imagery market and industry executives demonstrating how cloud-based technologies such as GeoEye’s EyeQ platform and TerraGo GeoPDF® imagery production capability can facilitate situational awareness for faster response, increased productivity and improved decision making.
“The commercial satellite imagery market produced $1,243 million in revenue in 2011, and we project that the market’s imagery revenue will grow to $2,602 million by 2016,” said Longfield of Frost. “As the market grows and there is increased reliance on geospatial intelligence across a variety of public and private sector verticals, there will be an even greater need for tools to empower users regardless of their level of geospatial training to maximize the value of these assets.”
“The increasing need to quickly and easily acquire imagery to respond to natural disasters and defense requirements coupled with the growing awareness of the value of imagery for decision support in business, federal, state and local planning are among the factors driving commercial and government customers to seek more efficient ways to access and distribute digital imagery,” said Tony Frazier, GeoEye senior vice president of Marketing.
“Once satellite imagery is acquired, the challenge becomes how to distill these massive quantities of data into something suitable for distribution and collaboration,” said George Demmy, TerraGo chief technology officer. “We will demonstrate how TerraGo GeoPDF imagery production capability from the EyeQ cloud-based platform meets the distribution and collaboration challenge by providing end users with an interactive, portable, intelligent product that can be easily accessed, updated and shared.”
