BURLINGTON, MA, (May 2, 2006) - The Carbon Project, the world leader in Open-Geospatial .NET technology, has announced a reseller relationship with GlobeXplorer, provider of the world's largest commercial library of aerial photos, satellite imagery and geographic maps. The agreement calls for GlobeXplorer to make global imagery data available through its ImageConnect® WMS service and for The Carbon Project to add this powerful online service to its new CarbonTools PRO™ toolkit and Gaia 3™ application suite.

"The currency, resolution and selection of GlobeXplorer data are the best in the world. Bringing ImageConnect WMS together with our CarbonTools PRO and Gaia 3 product lines means that .NET developers can now add high-resolution aerial and satellite images directly into their mapping projects with a click of their mouse, all from the world's largest, most current online archive," said Jeff Harrison, President and CEO of The Carbon Project.

"We've been demonstrating GlobeXplorer's ImageConnect WMS with The Carbon Project's tools for the past year, and this new relationship is the next logical step enabling CarbonTools PRO and Gaia 3 users full global access to our highest resolution archives," said Paul Smith, GlobeXplorer's COO. "Now .NET developers and other users will have easier access to the best imagery possible from providers like AirPhotoUSA®, DigitalGlobe®, Sanborn®, and leading European providers as well as US federal, state, and local government sources."
