Rome, 9 September, 2010

Under the exclusive agreement for the distribution of GeoEye-1 and IKONOS products in Europe and North Africa, signed with GeoEye Inc. in late 2008, e-GEOS and Eurimage are pleased to report the excellent performance of its Imaging and Processing Facility (IPF) in Neustrelitz (Germany), operated by Euromap, with the support of Deutsches Zentrum fuer Luftfahrt (DLR).

Under the agreement e-GEOS was granted direct access to the satellite planning over its exclusive distribution territory of Europe and North Africa.

During the first year of operations the IPF has acquired more than 80% of imagery with cloud cover less than 15% and 50% of all acquisitions were cloud free.

This excellent result was achieved thanks to the great work of the IPF Team and the outstanding performance of the GeoEye-1 satellite, which allowed e-GEOS to successfully complete most of its projects, including the very demanding Control with Remote Sensing (CwRS) Campaign of the European Commission JRC, of more than 150,000 km2 of GeoEye-1 and IKONOS imagery, acquired over 21 countries in just 3.5 months. Thanks also to the GeoEye Inc. Team in the US for their contribution.

Please contact your customer service representative to experience the most competitive pricing and conditions and outstanding acquisition performance for your Very High Resolution Imagery orders.

GeoEye-1 Imagery is currently the most advanced geospatial product available world-wide, in terms of resolution and accuracy.
