Access to geospatial data over the Internet has grown rapidly over the last five years. This has spawned a cottage industry of geospatial mash-ups targeted at niche markets. Geospatial mashup developers create applications from scratch that display various sources of geospatial data accessible over the internet. The developers aggregate the data and perform analysis and present the information in an easy-to-digest format targeted at specific end users. Typically these mashups leverage API's and are viewed in Google Earth, Microsoft Virtual Earth and Yahoo! Maps. These applications allow the end user to publish their data to various destinations, including local networks or web servers.
GeoEye imagery products provide highly accurate base maps that geospatial mashup developers can use to aggregate with other data and perform analysis on.
