There is a rising requirement for high quality satellite photos and also fast distribution of this kind of spatial data. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) platforms are needed to be implemented with the capability of dealing with the massive spatial data, especially image data. Thus these platforms need computational power and high capacity data storage. Nowadays Cloud Computing is one of the most popular IT solutions for GIS. It serves tremendous computing resources over the Internet. Users do not need to know neither the location of the servers which the applications run on nor the data storages their information is collected. The rise of Cloud Computing is making notable change in various areas of information technology. GIS technology users are one of the first customers to explore the cloud-based applications and its benefits. Users take the advantage of sharing spatial data and applications using the cloud. Therefore massive spatial data storages fit into cloud instead of transferring the data via the network.
