Multi-date picking gives ImageAtlas users full access to
GlobeXplorer's catalog of imagery spanning back 15 years, and in some areas, much further.
GlobeXplorer has announced the latest functionality addition to their ImageAtlas
aerial/satellite/map viewer: the ability to compare images from multiple dates. Users now have the
ability to instantly select a version with the date, and easily see change in
their areas of interest over time. Up to 12 different image versions can be
accessed in many major metropolitan areas, dating back to the early 1990s. Users
can instantly purchase large digital files and prints of the images, and
subscribers have the ability to right-click and copy unwatermarked images
directly from the viewer.
"We're excited to finally give our ImageAtlas users the functionality that's
been in our programmers' toolkits and our GIS extensions for some time: the
ability to access our entire archive, not just the 'latest and greatest,'" said
Paul Smith, GlobeXplorer's COO. "Our archive generally extends back about 10 to
15 years, but a few areas go back much further. For example, GlobeXplorer has some
downtown London imagery shot during World War II, from Cities Revealed.
"For the past seven years, GlobeXplorer has been steadily compiling the
largest commercial archive of imagery in the business, and we're excited to
finally make its full depth available to our ImageAtlas customers," added Smith.
"Our partnerships with most of the world's leading aerial and satellite imagery
firms have allowed us to build this archive to be one of the most extensive
resources of its kind. We're currently at about 600 terabytes of image and map
data, and we add about a terabyte of imagery a week. As our collection grows, so
does the number of imagery versions available over most domestic and many
