Giza

Publish basemaps as web services for geospatial workflows.

Benefits & Key Features

Today’s consumers of aerial imagery and basemaps need them to be fast and reliable, but storing and serving imagery can be expensive and delivering high performance can be challenging for any GIS team. Giza publishes OGC compliant Web Map Services (WMS) and Web Map Tile Services (WMTS) that can be seamlessly consumed into any software or platform, including Esri, AutoDesk, Bentley, and more. Giza is designed to work in conjunction with Google imagery.



Technology Solution

Aerial imagery is among the largest of geospatial data sets. Users of imagery want it to be fast and reliable, but given the size of the data, storing and serving imagery can be expensive and creating high performance can be challenging. The Giza Tile Pyramid Serving Appliance leverages the power and low cost of the Google Cloud Platform to reduce these common problems. Giza publishes OGC compliant WMS and WMTS services that can be seamlessly consumed into most GIS and CAD environments. Users of Giza typically purchase the service in conjunction with a Google Imagery purchase, although that is not required to use Giza.


Customer Validation

“AppGeo’s Giza is totally designed with the end user in mind. As functionality expands and improves, the simplicity and ease of use remains the same. The ability to use Giza for maintaining the Texas Imagery Service, retrieving the image tiles, managing users, and keeping tabs on usage is the ultimate in efficiency and convenience.” - Texas Natural Resources Information System
