Microsoft and Esri Deliver Centralized Satellite Image Analysis in Azure Orbital

Cloud-Hosted Geospatial Technology Will Bring Customers Easy-to-Consume Imagery Data

REDLANDS, Calif. — Satellites now provide huge datasets that require complex processing, data routing, and storage. To satisfy the growing demand for this data, Microsoft has teamed with Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, to rapidly analyze imagery data captured by satellite providers in space orbit. Esri’s ArcGIS Image technology will provide processing and analysis on imagery hosted in Azure Orbital, Microsoft’s Satellite Ground Station As a Service.

Organizations in virtually all industries now depend on location intelligence derived from satellite imagery to enhance operations, set policy, and make informed business decisions. For instance, the devastating 2021 wildfire season has broken records worldwide, and satellites have been instrumental in providing vital information for wildland fire responders. By reducing the time from collection to delivery, disaster responders can now have faster access to analysis that shows where massive, fast burning fires are moving and growing.

“The need to accelerate the delivery of insights from satellite imagery has grown as we continue to see increased urgency to respond to environmental, logistical, and natural resource challenges,” said Richard Cooke, Co-Director of Global Business Development, Esri. “ArcGIS Image, combined with Azure Orbital, will significantly reduce the latency from data collection to the delivery of mission critical insights.”

With Azure Orbital, data from satellite providers is directly ingested in Microsoft’s Azure cloud. This enables seamless application and use of Azure services such as compute, storage, and AI fast data processing.

“No one is better suited to host and analyze the next generation of earth imagery products than Microsoft and Esri,” said Yves Pitsch, Partner Director of Connectivity Products, Azure Space, Microsoft. “ArcGIS Image and Azure Orbital, working in concert with satellite data and ground station partners, will provide accessible, focused imagery products designed for immediate use to address our customers’ mission critical use cases.”

Esri has worked together with Microsoft for over 20 years and is its leading geospatial technology partner. The ArcGIS product suite is deeply integrated into many Microsoft applications and services that are deployed on the Azure cloud platform.
