This month we are unveiling the new and improved Image Hunter!! Listening to the feedback we have received over the past months, we are happy to announce a major overhaul to the user interface of Image Hunter as well as the backend architecture. Image Hunter Version 2 is built on open-source technology so now it works on all computers, not just on Windows machines. We slimmed down the user interface to make it easier to find the filters and other available tools. Image Hunter is now lightening fast with better previews and the option to search for RapidEye imagery.
All things said, we really think you will enjoy your new imagery browsing experience with Image Hunter (Version 2). Launched in July, we fully expect to find ways to improve its user interface and operability. If you have any ideas and/or feedback to improve Image Hunter (Version 2), please let us know at [email protected] or (303) 993-3863.
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:
- The Pléiades 1 constellation
- The entire SPOT constellation
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 preview images, then Image Hunter is the solution to your woes, as it features:
- Online browsing of satellite imagery from 4 data providers and 14 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.
- Responsive basemap with street names to provide a 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 as in the past!
The new version of Image Hunter can be accessed here. We are excited to find out what you think about Version 2!
