EarthWatch Inc., Longmont, Colo., and ERDAS Inc., Atlanta, Ga., implemented a software partnership.

The new partnership grants ERDAS the license to use the QuickBird sensor model in its geographic imaging software. According to Lawrie E. Jordan III, ERDAS president, “With the integration of QuickBird imagery, customers will be able to easily manipulate its panchromatic and multispectral imagery in ERDAS’ 2D and 3D environments.”

ERDAS and EarthWatch will provide software for traditional, vector-based GIS users.
