Blaze Hub offers a groundbreaking solution which is both consistent with technological trends, as well as revolutionary in its approach. Blaze Hub is a high-performance geospatial data management platform that enables organizations to conveniently find, access, process and share geospatial layers. Blaze Hub automatically catalogs imagery, vector data, elevation models, point-clouds, PDF files and documents in their original format and location without the need to move them or convert their formats. Thus Blaze Hub serves a single point of access for an entire geospatial library. Blaze Hub elastic-deployment architecture allows running multiple server nodes which can be deployed and removed dynamically providing instant scaling capability (from serving small teams to the entire enterprise), load-balancing, redundancy and hot-swapping. Blaze Hub utilizes open interfaces such as REST, JSON, GeoJSON, WKT, WMS, TMS allowing developers to integrate it with 3rd party applications.
Blaze Hub is designed to meet the needs of the most demanding organizations across a wide spectrum of GIS applications. Blaze Hub has a strong emphasis on speed and user accessibility, allowing to organize and distribute data to numerous users simultaneously. The Blaze Hub core services allow users to simply oversee work-processes as well as manage users and engines.

High-performance delivery and streaming of geospatial data allow end-users to instantly view and process cataloged imagery in original quality and resolution, utilizing OGC standards such as WMTS and TMS for dissemination of the data. Blaze Hub can also deliver 3D terrain to instantly visualize 3D scenes in Blaze Terra.

Blaze Hub crawlers run through unstructured network folders, discovering and extracting metadata from all known types of geospatial layers. The service maintains an up-to-date catalog of the entire metadata of each layer and enables fast searching of data by geographic region, by date, or by metadata values. Syndication services access external catalogs to allow for simultaneous searching through internal and external catalogs. Catalogs can be accessed by any software through REST API and directly accessible from Blaze Terra.
Crawling file-system, web-services, and external collections • Scheduled crawling • Fast discovery of new files, • Deletions and changes • Scanning parameters
Extract location • Metadata • Thumbnail • Full-text
Geolocation • Date and time • Thumbnail • ISO metadata • Vendor-specific metadata • Full text contents
Query by item kind • Geolocation • Date/time range • All attributes • Keywords • Full-text • REST API (oData)
The distributed framework can execute and monitor long-running processing jobs on cataloged data. Blaze Hub provides a library of jobs (such as converting, fusing and packaging of geospatial layers) which can be extended to include external processes. Blaze Hub can be configured to execute on demand, on schedule or be triggered by arrival of new data into the catalog that fits a set of user-defined rules.
Convert formats • Build pyramids • Rasterize vector layer • Import files
Automatic backup process for the organization’s geospatial library to provide an always-up-to-date hot backup of the cataloged data.
