New Imagery – December 2007

The latest release of imagery and photogrammetrics includes 36.3 TB of photography and models of 58 new cities worldwide! At a high level we've updated the Manhattan imagery, added 44 new cities with our Microsoft (Vexcel) ortho imagery, 36 new US bird's eye areas, 26 new European bird's eye areas, 5 areas of US orthos from GlobeXplorer, 17 international orthos from GeoEye, updated UK photos from GetMapping and Holland orthos from Digital Colour Orthophotomap of the Netherlands (DKLN). The image processing pipeline team is pumping out some serious bytes. One of these days I'm going to document how exactly this gets done....
