GeoEye will provide web mapping services under the US National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency 's Rapid Delivery program. This is an extension of an earlier contract with the NGA.
The imagery provider’s dissemination system can provide secure access to unclassified, high-resolution colour imagery of an entire country over the web. Images are acquired by the GeoEye-1 satellite and then disseminated to users in near real time. The system is compliant with Open Geospatial Consortium standards for geospatial and location-based information and web mapping services, GeoEye said.
