Land Info, Pixxures Announce Geodata Alliance(July 19, 2001)
The alliance matches LAND INFO's massive archive of digital geographic data from over 125 countries with Pixxures' state-of-the-art online delivery technology. The companies also plan to jointly develop new, value-added datasets, such as feature extraction and image processing. The benefits will directly impact geodata users in the civil engineering, telecommunications, U.S. federal and regional government, international government, environmental, agriculture, and other sectors.
"Businesses around the world are increasingly using imagery and geodata to plan, implement, and evaluate business decisions," commented Michael Blakeman, CEO and President of LAND INFO International. "Our alliance with Pixxures enables us to more rapidly support clients with the decision tools they require to be successful."
"Map users are looking for something more than just photos on the Internet," said Brian Webster, CEO and President of Pixxures. "By combining LAND INFO's elevation data and other vector data with the digital imagery in Pixxures' library, we are taking a giant step toward providing a one-stop, customizable mapping solution for our customers."
With this announcement, customers will, for the first time, be able to retrieve imagery for an existing geographic area and overlay associated vector data on that imagery -- all in an online session on the Internet. Pixxures will provide the online hosting and delivery of geospatial data content, which will be available for immediate purchase via a co-branded page that is currently being developed. LAND INFO is the first major company to partner with Pixxures in providing data and services that complement Pixxures' online image library, hosting and portal offerings.

The company has produced the world's largest, commercial databank of digital geographic data that includes coverage in over 125 countries.
