MapBiz: GlobeXplorer Signs Deal With EPA

The photogrammetry and satellite imagery firm, GlobeXplorer announced today that it had reached an agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to make its earth imagery and map data available to all of EPA's staff nationwide. Aerial, satellite, and map data will be available to the agency through the firm's ImageConnect extensions for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software.

The EPA uses GlobeXplorer's data in some of its projects already, including Superfund site work, wetland analysis, pesticide analysis, endangered species protection and emergency response.

ImageConnect extensions, which are available for several computer drafting and GIS software packages, allow users to access GlobeXplorer's archive of geo-referenced imagery inside those applications without conversion.

A subsidiary of Stewart Information Services Corporation, GlobeXplorer says it owns the largest commercial library of aerial photos, satellite imagery, geographic maps, and real property information in the world.
