Geomatics Yukon is responsible for coordinating the acquisition of digital satellite imagery for all Departments. GY has an image specialist on contract to assist with the selection and ordering of imagery as well as orthorectifying acquired imagery.
Geomatics Yukon maintains an extensive file-based image repository. In 2010, GY implemented ESRI’s ArcGIS 9.3.1 Image Server technology and started migrating the file-based image repository to serving imagery via image services. This was a challenging process; however, with the migration to ArcGIS 10 we have now implemented ESRI’s ArcGIS Server Image extension which has a much more efficient process for serving our large regional datasets.
