UP42 Partners With Hexagon To Offer HxGN Content Program Aerial Imagery on Geospatial Marketplace

By Eric Van Rees - 21st October 2020 - 06:27

High-resolution aerial imagery from the HxGN Content Program is now available on the UP42 developer platform for Earth observation data and analytics.

UP42 customers may now choose from nearly 11 million square kilometers of 30 cm orthorectified imagery for North America and Europe and over 500,000 sq km of 15 cm data for major U.S. cities in the Hexagon aerial image library.

UP42 gives users direct access to extensive Earth observation data sets and advanced processing algorithms – along with cloud computing power – to create their own geospatial solutions easily and inexpensively. The platform provides all the tools UP42 customers need to develop geospatial workflows, applications, and even commercial products.

“The HxGN Content Program is a valuable addition to the UP42 marketplace because it is an extremely vast library of orthorectified aerial imagery available for Europe and North America,” said UP42 CEO Sean Wiid. “This data can be accessed within the UP42 console or via API, where it can be downloaded, processed, or integrated into geospatial products.”

Managed by Hexagon, a global leader in sensors, software, and autonomous solutions, the HxGN Content Program has created an archive of cloud-free, four-band (Red, Green, Blue, Near IR) multispectral data acquired in the past two years with Leica ADS100 and DMC III airborne sensors. The data sets have been orthorectified to deliver the highest level of positional accuracy and consistency – regardless of geographic area. The library is updated every two to three years.
