Astrium’s Cloud Services will support Western Australia Lands Department

Landgate’s role is to coordinate the supply of data across government and to minimize the duplication of resources by collecting location data once, then sharing that data across all Western Australian state government entities. For this reason, Landgate intends to use SPOTMaps imagery as the base level dataset for SLICP, a platform that allows multiple government agencies to share spatial information for environmental mapping, cadastre, infrastructure, engineering, agricultural and emergency services.

Astrium Services’ hosting service will help reduce infrastructure costs and maintenance for location information, resulting in a more efficient utilization of funding across Western Australian government entities and easier access to spatial information.

This streaming service is provided with a 99.5% online service guarantee, which is crucial when supporting emergency and rescue operations.

Dr Adams from Landgate says “The imagery received from the SPOT 5 satellite will particularly benefit those agencies that carry out functions such as the management of emergency response, environmental mapping, planning and infrastructure.”
James Prior, Managing Director of the Australian GEO-Information Division of Astrium Services, said “This contract through Geospatial Intelligence, provides the recognised benefits of SPOTMaps –  a consistent, accurate and seamless 2.5m resolution dataset – across the whole of Western Australia.  More importantly, the availability of this data through our web hosting and streaming service into SLICP, ensures the immediate availability of SPOTMaps for all Western Australian government entities to access via their GIS software or web browser.”     

Through its GEO-Information business, Astrium Services is recognized as one of the leaders in the geo-spatial information market, not least thanks to the now fully integrated skills and resources of the former Spot Image and Infoterra. The company provides decision-makers with complete solutions enabling them to increase security, boost agricultural performance, maximize oil & gas or mining operations, improve their management of natural resources, and protect the environment. It has exclusive access to data from the SPOT, TerraSAR-X, TanDEM-X and Pléiades satellites, coupled with a complete range of space-based data sources and airborne acquisition capability allowing it to offer an unrivalled scope of Earth observation products and services. This extensive portfolio covers the entire geo-information supply chain, from the generation of images to the provision of high added-value information to end-users.
By leveraging the synergies and expertise available across the whole of Astrium Services, its GEO-Information teams develop innovative, yet competitive, custom-made solutions based on the combination and integration of Earth observation, navigation and high-end telecommunications.
