LAND INFO International, LLC, Denver, Colo., a leading provider of worldwide geospatial datasets and services, has reduced its pricing on select Afghanistan topographic maps, digital elevation models (DEM), and feature extraction layers (i.e. roads, hydrography). The special pricing is valid on orders placed by February 28, 2002. The February discounts include a 45 percent discount on 1:50,000 scale topographic maps. The digital datasets are fully geo-referenced to accommodate use with GPS, GIS and engineering applications. Much of the data can be shipped immediately.

The special, limited time offer includes three dataset types that can be easily combined to create a multifaceted analysis tool.
