Exelis ENVI analytics on DigitalGlobe’s big data platform

ExelisExelis and DigitalGlobe will provide a new commercial offering of cloud-based ENVI earth science analytics for the DigitalGlobe Geospatial Big Data (GBD) platform serving oil and gas industry, besides other enterprises

Designed and built by Exelis, ENVI is remote sensing analytical software to extract meaningful information from imagery and sensor data.

The agreement will enable all imagery users and customers of Exelis and DigitalGlobe to easily combine powerful ENVI geospatial analytics with the vast DigitalGlobe image library to solve challenging environmental, natural resource and global security problems.
Exelis Geospatial Systems president Chris Young said, “This agreement between Exelis and DigitalGlobe creates a single platform that customers can effectively use to solve challenging problems and define new market opportunities. The platform removes the logistical challenges that have inhibited this sort of innovation such as processing power, data storage and hardware cost.”

ENVI image analysis software has been used for more than 25 years to extract information from geospatial data.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to expose our 15-year catalogue of high-resolution satellite imagery to ENVI’s technologically sophisticated user base,” added Hyune Hand, DigitalGlobe’s senior vice-president of Product Marketing and Management.

“By coupling our imagery with these advanced analytic tools, users will be able to extract incredibly valuable information and insight about our changing planet – at scale.”

DigitalGlobe’s cloud-based GBD offering is a PaaS (platform as a service) model designed to create a new ecosystem in which partners and developers can leverage their expertise and an application programming interface, or API, to create new customer solutions at a global scale.
