Spatial Energy, Boulder, Colo., has reported an extension of their distribution agreement with Microsoft Corp.’s Bing Maps to integrate Bing Maps Services into Spatial on Demand – the world’s largest energy-specific online database and enterprise imagery management solution.
“Due to positive customer feedback and usage, Spatial Energy and Microsoft have extended their partnership to offer Bing Maps through Spatial on Demand to the oil and gas industry,” said Bud Pope, President, Spatial Energy. “Spatial on Demand, with Bing maps, has quickly become the defacto basemap for global energy companies. Customers fully recognize the value of no transaction or user fees, multiple layers of energy specific data, and output to their application of choice without having to pay additional fees, reformat the data, or have onerous licensing restrictions.”
In addition to Bing Maps, over 20 oil and gas specific data sets are included in Spatial on Demand. Major global content updates to Spatial on Demand in 2011 include Esri Data Services, DeLorme World Data, and OneGeology Geologic Data Services. New energy specific data sets are added quarterly. Spatial on Demand already offers global web services from all the major satellite providers, including DigitalGlobe, GeoEye and Spot Image/Astrium Services, providing the widest selection of data and services for any location in the world.
Bing Maps content integrated into Spatial on Demand include ready-to-use, cartographically rendered and cached 2D and 3D map services, including worldwide orthographic aerial and satellite imagery, imagery overlaid with roads and labels, the Bird’s eye (Oblique), Mapping, GeoCoding, Driving Directions, Proximity Searching, traffic incident data and street-level data for 67 countries/regions.
