Frequently Asked Questions about Giza

How can Giza help me manage my imagery?2023-10-27T15:15:43-04:00

Giza delivers advanced analytics on how users interact with your imagery to help expose the trends hidden in your imagery. Giza makes it possible to work with imagery data directly from cloud storage in web applications, desktop GIS, and CADD software. A service typically uses broadly supported WMS or WTMS protocols (OGC standards for serving map images or tiled imagery data via an HTTP interface). Here at Sanborn, we’ve been observing the shift towards managed imagery services as the de-facto way to consume imagery for enterprise users.

How can Giza help me stream the data I want without violating vendor terms of service?2022-05-26T14:00:01-04:00

As a management and analytics engine, Giza fulfills your imagery needs while maintaining vendor compliance. Giza adapts your imagery data and streams it more efficiently, while uncovering trends on how the imagery is being used. Faster tile delivery is possible, but why pay for that performance when the milliseconds gained don’t actually provide value? The important concept here is the service floor – the consistent reliable performance speed, which is distinct from the potential top end speed under ideal conditions. Giza’s WMTS service floor is to provide 95% of WMTS responses under 1 second.

With Giza, can I provision access to my imagery content to only the users I want?2022-05-26T13:59:55-04:00

An exceptional imagery streaming service gives you administrative and analytical controls. Giza provides you with the control you need to securely partition your content access to exactly the individuals or groups that require access, for the time they require it, in the areas they need it, and access the content from the infrastructure where work should be taking place. Giza tracks and delivers statistical summaries of imagery tile usage allowing unprecedented insight into which locations and levels are providing value to your users, which in turn promotes better imagery management and cost savings.
