JUNE 14--Space Imaging (Denver, CO; www.spaceimaging.com), a provider of Earth imagery and related services to commercial and government markets, and Veridian (Arlington, VA; www.veridian.com), an information-technology solutions company serving government and commercial customers, have released an image base product that uses the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) Controlled Image Base (CIB)format specifications. The image base product is the first to use unclassified, 1-m-resolution commercial satellite imagery as a source for the data. CIB is a NIMA-registered trademark product. The image base product will be available later this summer to government customers who require CIB formats.
The product is a contiguous, digital database of orthorectified, gray-scale imagery. It has been developed in 1-, 2-, 5- and 10-m-resolution formats with IKONOS supporting the 1-m imagery. Additional products may be offered as the database evolves to other resolutions.
"This new product, designed specifically for government and military users, has the potential for worldwide coverage. These products support a variety of mission planning programs, including weaponry, C3I theater battle management, digital moving map, terrain analysis, simulation, and intelligence systems," said Brian Soliday, executive vice president of Global Products and Services for Space Imaging. "We are pleased with GeoWorx's capability to produce new product solutions as the market evolves and demand for high-end, orthorectified imagery increases."
