GeoEye to Produce High-Resolution Images With Russian Partner; Christopher Tully Comments

GeoEye Inc. will work with a Russian partner to produce high-resolution satellite imagery for the Russian government under a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract, according to a GeoEye announcement.

GeoEye said the images will help create a base map of topographical features and property information such as type of ownership, licenses and taxes.

During the contract’s first phase, GeoEye will deliver archive imagery to ScanEx Research Development Center. During the second phase, GeoEye will collect new imagery of Russia from the company’s GeoEye-1 satellite.

The Russian government will post the completed map on the Web for public viewing and on a portal for viewing by federal and local agencies.

“GeoEye and ScanEx are working together to give Russia easy access to our timely geospatial information and help their government maintain consistent data layers for land parcels, infrastructure, borders and districts,” said Christopher Tully, GeoEye’s senior vice president of sales. “This project is yet another example of a groundbreaking product designed to advance the Russian Earth-observation market, and we are honored to be a part of it.”
