Have you checked out Image Hunter yet?

If not, you should! Listening to the feedback we received on improving current imagery search engines, Image Hunter features a friendly user interface with a backend architecture meant to maximize browsing efficiency. Image Hunter is built on open-source technology so it works on all computers, not just on Windows machines.

All things said, we really think you will enjoy your browsing experience with Image Hunter.

Key June 2015 Improvements

We are days away from launching our new feature, Data Alert – in fact, by the time this newsletter goes to print, it may very well be live! Data Alert will let users define a specific geography, a date range and the resolution required for their project. With this information, we will check the database every day for new imagery that meets this criteria and email you if we find a match. Work made simple; that is how we do it here at Apollo Mapping!

Image Hunter can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is a one-stop shop for every major source of medium and high-resolution satellite imagery on the market today, including:

  • WorldView-3
  • WorldView-2
  • WorldView-1
  • QuickBird
  • GeoEye-1
  • IKONOS
  • EROS B
  • KOMPSAT 3
  • KOMPSAT 2
  • The Pléiades 1 constellation
  • The entire SPOT constellation
  • RapidEye

If any of our readers have struggled with other geospatial search engines that are clunky, only query one data source and/or do not provide image previews, then Image Hunter is the solution to your woes, as it features:

  • Online browsing of satellite imagery from 4 data providers and 19 satellites.
  • Near-instantaneous loading of low resolution preview imagery with collection date, cloud cover and other key metadata.
  • The ability to define your area of interest by address and with coordinates, geometric shape or shapefile/KMZ.
  • A responsive basemap with street names to provide spatial context when discovering data as well as crowd-sourced updates for the most accurate map possible.
  • Exports of the area of interest you create as well as the scenes you select in shapefile or KMZ format.
  • Support for all operating systems, and not just our friends with Windows machines!

Image Hunter can be accessed here. We are excited to find out what you think about our industry-leading imagery search engine!
