Portland, OR – November 13, 2008 – WeoGeo (Portland, OR) and Earthstar Geographics LLC (San Diego, CA) today announced that Earthstar’s TerraColor satellite imagery will be resold on the WeoGeo Market. With the announcement, the ocean-masked version of the TerraColor 15-meter satellite imagery for the continental United States was made publicly available on the website.
TerraColor satellite images provide colorful, detailed and seamless views of the earth at medium resolution, and are used for land use analysis, web-based mapping, television, print and film images, 3-D visualization, and many other applications. By listing this geocontent for sale on the WeoGeo Market, users can browse and preview the available imagery. Once a listing has been selected for purchase, it can be customized to meet the user’s needs at no extra charge. Thus, the users only pay for the coverage that they are interested in and are spared the time and expense of post-processing.
“We are excited about the relationship with WeoGeo, and look forward to having TerraColor be part of their geospatial imagery offerings,” said Eric Augenstein of Earthstar Geographics.
WeoGeo Evangelist, Daniel Dye, commented, “This is a valuable addition to the WeoGeo Marketplace because medium-resolution imagery is extremely important for cartography and visualization at some map scales. This color-balanced and cloud-free mosaic of Landsat imagery is really beautiful.”
