October 20, 2009 -- Littleton, Colorado-based TerraMetrics, Inc., a leading developer of high-precision terrain-rendering technologies and global satellite imagery for aviation, simulation and geospatial markets, announced today that the company’s TruEarth 15-meter global satellite imagery is now available online through the MapMart.com website. The advanced web portal allows customers to browse satellite imagery, elevation data, aerial photography, street maps and other geospatial data products from various sources and preview selections before purchase.
MapMart, a division of IntraSearch, Inc., will carry the full TruEarth 15-meter global satellite imagery product line including TruEarth Standard and TruEarth Professional, two new imagery products in ECW and jpeg2000 formats that are tuned for applications requiring smaller dataset sizes. TruEarth imagery provides the best-available global-coverage data at 15-meter resolution and is processed using proprietary techniques to achieve its distinct natural-color balance.
“Our partnership with TerraMetrics gives our customers access to 15-meter global satellite imagery that has exceptional visual appeal and reflects our ongoing commitment to deliver affordable, high-quality data and imagery,” said Michael Platt, MapMart president. “TruEarth imagery offers a choice of dataset sizes and formats that allows our customers to use the 15-meter imagery in a variety of applications.”
“We are excited to partner with MapMart and offer the benefits of our TruEarth 15-meter global satellite imagery to a broader customer base,” said Greg Baxes, TerraMetrics president. “TruEarth 15-meter imagery provides a valuable, wide-area context for higher-resolution datasets. MapMart’s website makes it easy to bundle TruEarth 15-meter imagery with other data.”
Founded in 1998, TerraMetrics, Inc., develops high-precision terrain-rendering technologies for aviation, simulation and geospatial markets. TerraMetrics was one of the first to produce and market natural-color global satellite imagery and is forging new ground in interactive 3D terrain rendering and display. As a government contractor, TerraMetrics is currently researching and developing synthetic vision systems for the Air Force that provide helicopter pilots with a continuously updated 3D terrain model of their physical landing location during zero-visibility conditions. The company is also investigating and developing a web service architecture for NASA that stores, processes and delivers massive, multi-dimensional science data sets to web-based geospatial browsers such as Google Earth.
