Walnut Creek, CA and Colorado Springs, CO - (July 7, 2005) - GlobeXplorer, the leading provider of online earth imagery and maps, today announced a distribution agreement with Sanborn, a top provider of high-resolution aerial and mapping services, and remote sensing solutions. With this new relationship, Sanborn's high quality "CitySets™" aerial imagery content will be made available online within GlobeXplorer's suite of Web-based imagery products.
This new arrangement will make Sanborn's CitySets an important data source in GlobeXplorer's ImageAtlas viewers, ImageConnect extensions for GIS and CAD desktop applications, and a premium aerial imagery source for GlobeXplorer's ImageBuilder developer's toolkit.
GlobeXplorer has already loaded urban core CitySets aerial imagery for Honolulu, Memphis, Miami, New Orleans, Houston, and Dallas, with more than 50 additional to load in the coming weeks. This 1-foot and 6-inch resolution imagery was shot at full color with a high degree of spatial accuracy. Complete 3-D buildings with landscape elevations are also available for visualization and urban modeling applications.
