Linking GIS and the Cloud - 25/05/2011


The recent news that the US federal government is looking to purchase cloud-based services with an estimated value of USD2.5 billion should be enough evidence to change the mind of anyone who still thinks that the cloud will float by. Moving data, software and services to the cloud is happening and the pace of this change will only increase. Arc2Earth, New Jersey, USA, clients are at the vanguard of the ‘geo-cloud' and the Arc2Earth software is used throughout the world.


New Jersey-based Arc2Earth has been working at the interface of GIS and the web since 2006, creating products that bridge the gap between Esri's ArcGIS and Google mapping. In the last 5 years, Google has made great strides with their mapping offering (who doesn't use Google Maps?) culminating in the recent release of the Google Earth Builder. Arc2Earth has matched this rate of development and the latest version of their suite of products covers a range of operations that everyone moving geospatial data into the cloud must achieve.
