Cloud Hosted Data Services
ESP is an Amazon Web Services hosted platform for LIDAR, Imagery and related products. It is a great dissemination platform for agencies who acquire data such as LIDAR and need it securely backed up and made available to stakeholders (including the public) via a web facing portal. ESP includes the idea of workflow so agencies can have us integrate in, for example, a QC workflow, allowing their collection contractors to post data directly to their ESP portal. This is a subscription model that offloads all need for server technology as well as concerns of your own firewall being maliciously penetrated via your data portal.
