SpatialCloud web services enables application developers and content providers to upload, process, store, and distribute 2D & 3D geodata for their own use or resale. Based on cloud-computing concepts, SpatialCloud allows users to outsource the infrastructure and maintenance of traditionally one of the most costly components of the GeoWeb stack, high-resolution image content and associated 3D data. SpatialCloud services are intended for customers who require reliable, high-quality, global, geospatial data sets in applications serving from one to thousands of users. SpatialCloud is also for those who do not want themselves or their users to be encumbered by licensing restrictions and expensive infrastructure.

SpatialCloud primary focus is geospatial imagery. Our goal is to you give you access to new high-resolution imagery as quickly as possible and do that on a global scale. Our first data product is a seamless 1m coverage of the USA (USA NAIP) provided as WMTS (web mapping tiled service). What makes our services different is that it´┐Ż's a pay as go service that doesn't restrict you as a developer to on-sale data to your own customers. We charge you for use, but we also provide you log data on how much your customers consumed so that you can re-sell it if that is your interest. The only thing we ask you not to do is just copy our data to setup your own service. We think that once you see how much data that involves and what it costs to park that data elsewhere, you will see the value of using

SpatialCloud´┐Ż's core services are intended for two classes of user. Developers looking for better/unrestricted image layers to use in their GeoWeb applications and image content providers who want to outsource the distribution of their data. SpatialCloud services are built on Amazon Web Services. They are super-scalable. They are inexpensive. More are planned.
