A rapid-response satellite imagery service for crisis situations could be available as early as this spring from two U.S. companies.
The service from Virginia's Esri, a geographic information software company, and GeoEye, another Virginia company, will enable more timely crisis response to disaster response.
"We're extremely pleased that Esri chose GeoEye as their imagery partner for this important work," said Chris Tully, GeoEye's senior vice president of sales. "Geospatial technology plays a critical role in determining where resources should be deployed most effectively after a crisis.
"We feel confident that Esri users will see immediate benefits when they leverage timely GeoEye event imagery and Esri support through this service."
