TerraMetrics Announces New, Lower-priced 15-meter Global Imagery Products

August 19, 2009

Littleton, Colo.—Littleton, Colorado-based TerraMetrics, Inc., a leading developer of high-precision terrain-rendering technologies and global satellite imagery for aviation, simulation and geospatial markets, announced today that it is adding new, lower-priced 15-meter imagery products to the company’s TruEarth® 15-meter imagery product line. The newly released products provide high-quality TruEarth imagery that has been tuned for specific applications requiring smaller dataset sizes, such as embedded and web-based applications. 

The two new 15-meter global datasets are available in enhanced compressed wavelet (ECW) and jpeg2000 formats for efficient delivery, and feature the company’s proprietary TruEarth natural-color balance. TruEarth Professional, one of the new products, is designed for demanding applications that require excellent visual feature fidelity and moderate dataset size reduction. TruEarth Standard provides high visual feature fidelity and substantial file size reduction. TerraMetrics will continue to offer its premium TruEarth Pure global imagery dataset for the most demanding military and aviation applications. 

“We’re pleased to offer new TruEarth imagery products that will give our customers more options at lower price points,”says TerraMetrics president Greg Baxes. “Global satellite imagery is being used in many new and exciting applications from simulation and training exercises to geospatial browsers and advanced aviation-based synthetic vision systems. We will continue to provide products that meet the growing demand for visually accurate, high-quality satellite imagery in a variety of applications,” Baxes adds.
