CubeWerx signs 3-year contract to provide managed imagery services to SGIC

Gatineau, QC, Canada, Apr 23, 2015 - CubeWerx signs 3-year contract to provide managed imagery services to the Saskatchewan Geospatial Imagery Collaborative

CubeWerx has signed a 3-year contract with the Saskatchewan Geospatial Imagery Collaborative (SGIC) to provide imagery hosting and managed Web services to the collaborative’s many member organizations across the province and in the federal government.

The contract, signed following an extensive evaluation of CubeWerx flagship  OpenImageMap platform, represents the second generation of the SGIC's FlySask system, which provides their members with access to high-quality aerial and satellite imagery, via direct download, and through  Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) web services. In addition to the OpenImageMap software platform, the contract includes a new website and client portal for SGIC members and the general public to access the collaborative's data.

The new system,  FlySask2, represents a major enhancement to the program in both performance and scalability. It will allow the collaborative to expand its offerings to members while maintaining excellent standards of service.

“This new contract with CubeWerx is incredibly important as it will change the system to make it bigger, stronger, faster and ultimately more user-friendly for SGIC’s members and the general public,” said Ian Radchenko, SGIC Project Manager and Research Scientist at the Saskatchewan Research Council. “The old system had great performance and served the SGIC well but it is time for an upgrade after 8 years of operation and our hope is to see large usage increases with this new system.”

"This agreement is a major milestone in our relationship with the SGIC and further enhances our role as a strategic business partner", said Edric Keighan, President and CEO of CubeWerx. "We will deploy the best capabilities available in order to help the collaborative achieve its goals and provide its members with the products and services they depend on."
