Access data and analytical tools online from EOS Data Analytics

A new platform from EOS Data Analytics (https://eos.com/platform/) allows data users not only to access data, but even perform online image processing in a web browser.  It is a set of mutually integrated cloud products for searching, analyzing, storing, and visualizing geospatial data.  This is a representation of what we have been discussing on this blog, namely, the increasing adoption of Software as a Service, and in addition, the combination of SaaS with data services and analytical services.  Thus, GIS professionals can search for, analyze, store, and visualize large amounts of geospatial data in one platform.  Doing all this in one system and also in a browser is, quite frankly, quite amazing.

With the EOS Platform, GIS users have access to an ecosystem of four mutually integrated EOS products, which together provide a powerful toolset for geospatial analysts. Image data is stored in cloud-based storage and is available for image processing or remote sensing analysis at any time; this can be a raw user file, an imagery obtained from their LandViewer data portal, or an output file from their online EOS Processing tools.  The EOS Platform is currently available for free during an open Beta.   The LandViewer tool has been freely available for some time and will continue to be.

There are at least two reasons why image processing is the platform’s major asset: the processing of large data amounts runs online and offers as many as 16 workflows with even more coming soon. On top of that, users can get the best cartographic features of EOS Vision for vector data visualization and soon to come, analysis.

I found the LandViewer tool easy to use, with a wide variety of data sets to choose from, including Landsat, MODIS, NAIP, and others.
