The very best, commercially developed platforms usually carry a hefty price tag, reflecting the ongoing development work they need.
Now, we’ve partnered with multinational earth observation specialist Airbus to develop a new, commercial quality geospatial data service for our members at highly cost-effective prices.
The service offers highly accurate, detailed current mapping (with unlimited download capability) and spatial data.
Airbus is a leading developer of geospatial platforms, as well as aerospace and engineering resources for government bodies.
The Intelligence Programme Line of the Airbus Defence and Space division provides satellite data to multiple industries, to decision makers and analysts who require a precise, remote and ranging view of our globe.
Who is this service for?
Researchers, lecturers and students who need an accurate tool for manipulating and adding layers to maps and spatial data to support research and learning in the arts, humanities, earth and life sciences and engineering.
Geospatial data for HE members
Jisc Collections has negotiated licensing agreements for the collections at a fraction of the commercial rate.
The service is available on a trial basis until 31 July 2019.
You can access and use the service at no cost for the whole of this academic year.
