CBS News uses GIS mapping for US election coverage

GlobeXplorer has recently announced their ImageConnect web extensions for GIS and CAD are now fully compatible with Autodesk’s suite of desktop mapping software. ImageConnect allows GIS and CAD users to bring geo-referenced aerial and satellite images from GlobeXplorer’s online archive directly into their projects. GlobeXplorer has combined data from the providers of aerial and satellite imagery to create the world’s most current and high-resolution archive of aerial and satellite imagery. Content providers like AirPhotoUSA, DigitalGlobe, Sanborn, USGS, and USDA yield a comprehensive coverage of the US at several resolutions and dates. A release of international metros is forthcoming in early 2006 featuring GlobeXplorer’s extensive global content partner network. With the release of version 2.6, ImageConnect is now fully compatible with Autodesk Map 3D, Autodesk Land Desktop, Autodesk Raster Design, Autodesk Civil 3D, and geo-referenced AutoCAD projects. Web server extensions for Autodesk MapGuide and the soon to be released Autodesk open source platform are also available. GlobeXplorer LLC is a geographic data integration and publishing company providing online access to the world’s largest commercial library of aerials, satellite imagery, and physical property conditions.
