CREODIAS and ESRI cooperation!

With contributions from the European Space Agency (ESA) ᶲ-lab CREODIAS and location intelligence world leader Esri have jointly set up initial services for Sentinel-2 data. Direct access to cloud storage and selective data ingestion in ArcGIS Image Server proved to be a standard IT conforming and quick process that conforms to IT standards. As a result, an analytical service for any given area can be set up and maintained in an automated fashion. ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Enterprise installations, as well as web applications hosted in the CREODIAS cloud, offer high availability, bandwidth, and scalable computing resources for short-term research and long-term offerings alike.
