GlobeXplorer LLC, the leader in the distribution of online aerial and satellite imagery, announced an agreement to provide Terraserver.com access and distribution rights to their full library of high-resolution earth imagery. GlobeXplorer is a wholly owned subsidiary of Stewart Information Services Corp. (NYSE-STC).

“Adding GlobeXplorer’s library to our site represents a truly dramatic increase in our coverage and image quality,” said Bill Brown, president of Terraserver.com.

For Terraserver.com, also a provider of online aerial and satellite images, an alliance with GlobeXplorer was an important part of providing Web users with the best coverage and resolution possible, Brown added. “Under this arrangement, Terraserver.com will gain access to the largest online library of aerial and satellite imagery commercially available. Terraserver customers will be able to view, download and print any of GlobeXplorer’s high resolution aerial and satellite imagery,” said Brown.

“We’re excited that Terraserver has decided to take advantage of the quality and quantity of GlobeXplorer’s image archive, as well as our proven infrastructure,” said Rob Shanks, president of GlobeXplorer. “This agreement is further validation of our position as the world leader in online earth imagery technology.”

Among the imagery that GlobeXplorer will be providing is their proprietary line of Citipix 6-inch, full color orthophotos of over 65 major metropolitan areas in the United States, as well as regular updates of AirPhotoUSA and DigitalGlobe material.

“We look forward to a long business relationship with Terraserver.com and expect this alliance to further expand both of our companies’ positions in the aerial imagery market,” said Shanks.
