Access to high-quality aerial and satellite imagery easier

GlobeXplorer, the provider of commercial aerial and satellite imagery, has announced the release of ImageAtlas 2.0, its new aerial imagery viewer. GlobeXplorer is a wholly owned subsidiary of Stewart REI Data Inc., a Stewart Information Services Corp subsidiary. ImageAtlas 2.0 provides instant online access to nationwide aerial imagery and street maps (of US) for anyone with a Web browser, with no software downloads needed. Users can order high quality photo prints or download digital files of any selected image online to be delivered to their desktop, home, or business.

Among its new features, ImageAtlas 2.0 provides a membership system for individual users. For a small monthly fee, registered members receive a 20 to 25 percent discount on all prints and downloads as well as watermark-free imagery browsing. Anyone can go to to use the new application, and instantly purchase aerial prints, digital file downloads and street map/aerial image combo reports called ‘Aerial Profiles.’ Once clicking on the “Map and Aerial Overlay Toggle” feature, users can now use their mouse to reveal street map information overlaid on an aerial image. Additional features include a customizable user interface with co-branding capability, ability to search by either street address or latitude/longitude information, and membership signup through Paypal. Coming soon will be perspective viewing that allows any user to view and purchase 3-D imagery.
