GeoEye and JSI Offer EyeQ to Japanese Government

By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor

To access vital information across every square kilometer within Japan, GeoEye (News - Alert), a  source of geospatial information and insight, has partnered with the Japan Space Imaging Corporation (JSI), a Mitsubishi Corporation subsidiary, to offer Japanese ministry with access to comprehensive high-resolution satellite imagery of all of Japan through GeoEye's EyeQ platform.

Under this partnership, JSI will use EyeQ to provide Japanese ministry analysts with online, on-demand access to the GeoEye- and JSI-owned satellite imagery covering Japan.

These high-resolution satellite images help ministry analysts and experts gain on-demand insight to view the data through Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) services as part of their workflow process.

EyeQ will enable a wide array of non-specialist analysts to quickly and easily access GeoEye's accurate, high-resolution content in near real-time, within hours of its collection.

GeoEye is a source of geospatial information and insight for decision makers and analysts who need a clear understanding of our changing world to protect lives, manage risk and optimize resources. The company is providing images to organizations in defense and intelligence, public safety, critical infrastructure, energy and online media.

GeoEye has working relationship with JSI since 1998 for JSI to collect and sell Earth imagery and related products, initially from IKONOS and eventually including GeoEye-1.

Chris Tully, GeoEye's senior vice president of Sales, said in a statement, "This agreement with JSI to serve a Japanese ministry marks an important milestone for GeoEye. The Japanese government is the first major international government to benefit from EyeQ managed services. This will allow the ministry's analysts to access geospatial data previously accessible only to highly advanced users.”

JSI is a provider of satellite imagery and geospatial solutions for government and commercial customers.
