ERDAS APOLLO Advantage allows for users to go from the “scanner to the shop” in one day. This solution automatically crawls geospatial data and reads applicable metadata into a catalogue with web services on top. In addition, the Store Front can ingest non-geo data. Adapted for old aerial photographs, when digitized, the system requires the administrator to copy the raw data to the server to be crawled.
From a central data repository users can now provide a print to a consumer and a PDF report to an environmental consultant simultaneously through various web shops with multiple propositions. Fortunately, the Store Front offers payment and subscription solutions for businesses and consumers. This enables both enterprise-level usage, as well as the ability for consumers to purchase and access high-quality photo prints via a bank or credit card.
The Store Front automatically manages users, orders, deliveries, payments and business reporting. It includes a brokering option, with the ability to track 3rd party data offerings and remittance. The system also has a customer portal to store and manage all administrative information for any user to access depending on their role. Order details, order status, user details, invoices and more are accessible – minimizing the need for cumbersome paperwork.
The Store Front enables geo-RSS, where users can subscribe to a location or area, and the system will automatically send notifications when relevant new data is available.
