November 19, 2001
DeLorme will produce mapping products based on the true color mosaic.

DeLorme, Yarmouth, Maine, purchased the SPOT USA Select nationwide satellite image mosaic under an exclusive mapping channel agreement with SPOT Image Corporation. DeLorme will produce and sell mapping products based on the 10-meter resolution true color mosaic, which was created from SPOT satellite imagery. The imagery will be integrated with DeLorme vector street, place name and land-use, land-cover data. DeLorme’s first new satellite U.S. mapping product, 3-D ImageryMaps, will be released region-by-region starting with New Jersey and Delaware. Additional regions will be released as soon as the data becomes available. The new satellite image map will provide seamless coverage and show updated roads, place names and land cover from the DeLorme vector datasets. The product will also provide 2-D and 3-D map views.
