New ESRI partner gives
more resources to GIS professionals
Partners with ESRI to Provide GIS Users Instant Access to the
World’s Largest Online Library of Earth Imagery
Creek, California - GlobeXplorer LLC, the leader in the distribution
of online aerial and satellite imagery, today announced an agreement
with ESRI to provide its Citipix aerial imagery archive as an
ArcWeb Service. This annual subscription service will provide
access to over 300 terabytes of six-inch (0.1 meter) resolution,
full-color Citipix aerial imagery for the United States.
Because of their new alliance with ESRI, the leading developer
of geographic information (GIS) software, GlobeXplorer has made
it simpler than ever before for GIS professionals to gain access
to seamless, high-quality earth imagery instantly projected into
any major map coordinate system.
“We are happy to have GlobeXplorer as a partner in providing
our users the best and most reliable online service possible,”
said Mike Tait , Director of Internet Services for ESRI. “The
Citipix imagery library is an important addition to our selection
of ArcWeb Services.”
“Because of its high resolution, Citipix is a perfect backdrop
for feature updating, site analysis, public safety preparedness,
real estate, and land planning applications,” said Rob Shanks
, President of GlobeXplorer. “Its precision makes it an
excellent base layer for any metropolitan area GIS mapping application.”
Once ArcGIS users purchase Citipix as an ArcWeb Service, it is
simply added as a layer in their ESRI ArcGIS or ArcExplorer software.
Subscribers receive free content updates during the license term.
GlobeXplorer also offers USGS DOQ one-meter imagery of the continental
United States as an additional ArcWeb Service. Planned for the
future is a range of other earth imagery ArcWeb Services powered
by GlobeXplorer’s robust server technology, from leading
imagery suppliers such as AirPhotoUSA and i-cubed.
GlobeXplorer’s ArcWeb Services for ArcGIS will be made available
at ESRI’s ArcWeb Services page and at the Geography Network
