Imagery and Remote sensing technologies have been a core foundations of GIS technology. Today, the use of imagery extends from users who just need to view imagery as a background in an application to those that need to perform advanced analysis. Imagery is being used to create valuable information products across a spectrum of industries ranging from agriculture, forestry, disaster management, oil & gas to urban planning.
With the advancement in remote sensing technologies, new innovations like sensors, use of drones, UAVs for remote sensing, the accessibility and use of high-resolution imagery has grown significantly. In addition, satellites and sensors are collecting new data, adding to a continuous collection effort—a time series of observations about our planet. This poses significant challenges for agencies who need to manage the data and are mandated to make it accessible. For user organizations, it is essential to keep up with rapid changes in the imagery data while justifying the ROI from it.
Traditionally, GIS professionals have performed image processing and GIS analysis as separate processes, but technology evolution and emerging trends are driving the need for convergence of GIS and Imagery into one integrated process. The value of imagery can be substantially increased if the imagery is integrated into complete workflows and quickly accessible within many different applications.
