PiXterra offers a range of powerful and useful tools, including real-time roam-and-zoom, address search and GIS Vector Information. It also offers multi-date imagery overlay and transparency for change detection analysis. Information in the GIS database includes public buildings and parks, train stations and roads. In the near future, demographic data derived from census statistics and land assessment information will also be available.
PiXterra is suitable for use by a wide range of industries. These include real estate and property management agencies, utilities and facilities management organizations, transportation companies and the tourism industry.
Mr. Koji Ueda, Chief Solution Engineer from Satellite Imagery Division in Hitachi Software said, "We believe this service will significantly expand the satellite imagery market. Before the PiXterra service, it used to be very difficult to handle satellite imagery for customers that did not have expensive hardware or special software. The power and customizability of Image Web Server have made it possible for us to create a new market by serving imagery and GIS data over the Internet."
Mr. Ueda added, "The interoperable multi-layer Image Web Server solution allows users to extract much more information by overlaying multiple data sources rather than using each data set separately."
Mr. Tong Lim, Asia Operations Manager from Earth Resource Mapping said, "Our expertise in image management adds great value to Hitachi Software Engineering's image distribution network. The Image Web Server technology has revolutionized the way we utilize and share valuable imagery and spatial information making large amounts of image data available to the public."
