ERDAS Image Web Server
Do you own large amounts of raster data? The ERDAS Image Web Server is a COTS solution that easily allows your organization to quickly integrate raster data in to your GIS. ESRI has a similar solution in the ArcGIS Image Server but wouldn't it be more adventageous to manage your raster data through a product whos main focus is the speedy delivery of large volumes of raster data? There are pros and cons to both products I'm sure...for example, both applications provide a way to extend the core functionality. ESRI gives you an API (more than likely through ArcObject programming) while ERDAS gives you the Image Integration Framework. I would be really interested to see a side by side comparison for both!!! NOTE: Leica (now ERDAS) acquired ERMapper last year.
