10 Great Racetracks as Seen From Space – GeoEye High Resolution Imagery Featured in Wired Article

Racetracks pretty much look the same from the grandstands or on television — a vast expanse of asphalt on which drivers do battle. Seen from space, though, you can appreciate their form and the skill it requires to drive them at the limit…Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Indiana. Sure, it’s essentially four left turns. And it is home to the Indianapolis 500. But if you think that’s all it is, you are sadly mistaken. It is the stage upon which some of racing’s greatest dramas have been played out. It is where triumph and tragedy transpire in milliseconds. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is rare in American motorsports, for it is history. Built in 1909 as a testing facility for auto manufacturers, The Brickyard has been the home to more historic races than possibly any other single track in the world. That’s the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course on the right, with 14 holes adjacent to the backstretch and four inside the “oval.” Image: GeoEye

Nevelsky Strait Pipeline Case Study at GeoEye.com

“Highly detailed IKONOS satellite images of the Nevelsky Strait are being used to determine where the sea portion of a pipeline way for one of the most complicated installations of a gas pipeline is to be constructed. The 1,830-kilometer Sakhalin-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok gas pipeline is being built as part of the Eastern Gas Program, which is being coordinated by OAO Gazprom…”

Satellite Imagery Is the Newest Arsenal Used in the Fight Against Cancer – GeoEye Case Study

Satellite imagery has continued to evolve as a technology over the past 50 years. No longer simply for governmental purposes, satellites are impacting areas far beyond their expected reach, eager to transform this archaic perception. This advancing technology has affected industries which span the business spectrum, including spill over to multiple consumer and even seemingly unrelated industries, such as the medical industry…Remote sensing, coupled with data processing procedures, has been found effective in detecting and decrypting data concerning natural resources that offer an added, health-related benefit. This is the case for the Canadian yew tree (Taxus Canadensis). The Yew tree is the main source of Paclitaxal, a chemical substance that, when processed, can be used to treat cancer. The lens behind the project is GeoEye‘s IKONOS Earth imaging satellite.
