Harness the power of Google's massive cloud computing system for automatic processing and storage of geospatial data and imagery using Google Earth Builder. Google Earth Builder allows your organization to easily manage and publish GIS data and imagery with all the cost savings of working in the cloud.
- GIS and IT managers no longer have to provision storage and servers for unanticipated spikes in traffic
- No need for hardware purchases
- Software upgrades become a thing of the past
Employees across departments or contractors from other organizations can be given access to critical decision-making information securely over the web, instead of sending large cumbersome GIS files back and froth. Individual globes can be quickly built for small teams in one department or for thousands of users across continents. In fact, imagery and data can be shared to anyone with an Internet connection.
End users can access the maps & globes your IT or GIS departments create through the free Google Earth Client, the Earth Enterprise Client or custom developed web applications. Because the data is delivered over the web, your organization's globes can be accessed from a desktop computer, tablet, or smartphone. Since Google Earth Builder is a cloud-based platform, GIS managers & administrators have instant access anywhere to the management platform through a secure web browser.
Google Earth Builder is built to manage petabytes of data and imagery for every customer. In addition to the data you load on to Google Earth Builder, your end users now have the ability to simultaneously access Google's valuable base map layers and other data to enrich your end user's experience. Google Earth Builder provides an easy to use interface for styling vectors and customers with very large amounts of data and imagery can ship a hard drive directly to Google for upload and processing. For administrators, Google Earth Builder also comes with valuable analytics tracking to see what data is being viewed so that your organization can make informed decisions about where to spend limited financial resources for data and imagery collection.
