GeoEye recently announced an agreement with Fugro for online imagery dissemination through Fugro World – Fugro's global portal for delivery of data and solutions. GeoEye's EyeQ platform will be integrated with Fugro World to support online access to satellite imagery.
"GeoEye is pleased that Fugro has chosen to add EyeQ services to its range of offerings via the Fugro World global customer portal," said Paolo Colombi, GeoEye's vice president for International Sales. "In addition to serving Fugro World's existing customers, this agreement will also allow GeoEye to welcome new EyeQ and imagery end-users in new markets and regions."
Through Fugro World, clients are able to discover, order and obtain data from multiple sources and suppliers.
"We pride ourselves on offering our global customers access to the satellite imagery they need in order to explore, develop, produce and transport the world's natural resources," said Louise Gibbons, manager of Fugro World. "We are pleased to partner with GeoEye and to use EyeQ as part of our suite of online delivery capabilities."
Fugro chose GeoEye's EyeQ platform for its ability to provide online access to premium high-resolution satellite imagery content from an extensive global catalogue, as well as new collections using the GeoEye-1/IKONOS constellation. EyeQ offers fully managed service in the cloud, a scalable infrastructure and the availability of open and secure standard Web services.
