HxGN Content Program is Now Available through GSA

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Hexagon’s Geosystems Division, the smart digital realities provider, announced today the HxGN Content Program’s imagery is now available to government agencies directly through the General Services Administration (GSA).

Government agencies at the federal, state or local levels can now purchase high-quality aerial imagery content via subscriptions to a streaming service or physical pixel delivery for download. The imagery content is available directly in the application of choice through Open Geospatial Consortium (OGS), Web Map Services (WMS) and Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) protocols. The professional four-band (RGBN) orthorectified 15- and 30-centimetre imagery content meets conventional mapping accuracy requirements enabling use in many applications that in the past were only serviced by contracting for such products.

“Enabling our government customers to purchase directly through GSA offers a fast, flexible and cost-effective procurement solution to meet operational challenges,“ said John Welter, Hexagon’s Geospatial Content Solutions president. “With a significant increase in demand and continual refresh of the imagery content, we wanted to ensure it was easily available through our new offering with GSA.”

Quality control by experts

Launched in June 2014, the HxGN Content Program provides valuable geospatial content and delivers professional-grade airborne images captured with Leica Geosystems’ airborne sensors, including enhanced-resolution, four-band orthos and stereo imagery. The imagery data is processed by experienced photogrammetry professionals using the latest processing technology to meet conventional mapping standards and deliver an exceptional product. Independent quality control is then performed to ensure accuracy specifications are achieved.

The imagery content is refreshed on a regular schedule of no more than two years, and data capture of entire states is done within one flying season. Current coverage includes the entire continental U.S., Puerto Rico, and portions of Canada and Europe.
