Cloud-native asset model


The cloud-native asset model (CNAM) enhances all UP42 assets from a tasking or catalog order by transforming them into individual geospatial features that are ready for immediate download. Regardless of provider or delivery format, UP42 automatically transforms assets into a standard model, without any additional steps. This common model is further improved by converting raster data into cloud-optimized GeoTIFFs and vector masks into GeoJSONs. CNAM ensures interoperability and eases integration by removing the need to learn different data formats, delivery structures, and naming conventions. Users now have a simplified process of searching, visualizing, and downloading data.
