Access Imagery from the Cloud


Looking for ways to increase the speed with which you can execute projects that require imagery that you don’t have in house? Hexagon Geospatial provides direct access from Power Portfolio products to professional grade airborne imagery from the Hexagon Imagery Program (HxIP). Use imagery from both North American and European regions. This premium imagery, available through the cloud, streamlines the creation of actionable information from the Producer Suite products.

With the addition of this readily accessible subscription service, high quality multi-band imagery, image-derived elevation and stereo data can be readily and easily exploited with ERDAS IMAGINE. With the Hexagon Imagery Program, you get simplified access to highly accurate and useful data directly from your geospatial products. Combining the HxIP with Hexagon Geospatial products enables you to directly and rapidly access cloud-based imagery to create valuable content, with minimal acquisition delays, and accelerate the time to project completion.

Infared HxIP

The HxIP images that you acquire could also be used in a Hexagon Smart M.App workflow. The Infrared imagery available through the program is ideal to discriminate vegetation from urban features and to identify greenspace, vegetation health, and more. Deriving elevation from the imagery in ERDAS IMAGINE enables you to perform powerful change detection and terrain analytics. The stereo data available enables you to easily create accurate 3D measurement, perform feature identification and more – developing valuable content as a result.
