Valtus Imagery Services

Boulder, USA, 22 February 2007 – Valtus Imagery Services has announced the immediate availability of an additional 3 US States at 1 meter resolution and Texas at 2 meter resolution. The natural color data of Nevada, Utah and Wyoming was flown in 2006. Valtus has also acquired and made available worldwide 15 meter coverage.

All Valtus data is available through both VIEWS and VISTA. VIEWS (Valtus Imagery Enhanced Web Service) provides instant, secure access to an extensive library of imagery that can be seamlessly integrated into mapping applications and geographic information systems.

VISTA (Valtus Imagery Services Terrain Archives) is a convenient online solution for users who require immediate access to downloadable, georeferenced mapping data. Valtus also stores, manages and seamlessly integrates customer owned data with public database.

“This new data and our relationships with a large number of aerial and satellite data providers will enable us to continue bringing the high level of service our customers have come to expect. We are aggressively acquiring and building our global content because of demands from our customers”’, said Kenyon Waugh, Chief Strategy Officer, Valtus Imagery Services. “These 4 additional states represent a doubling of Valtus coverage in the United States to eight full western states.”

Collected in 2006 as part of North West Geomatic’s USDA NAIP program, this data represents the continued growth of NAIP and NAIP related data sets that will be available on-line through Valtus Imagery Services. North West and its partners EarthData and Horizons, are the leading providers of NAIP imagery to the USDA. The 15 meter NaturalVue coverage is provided by Valtus partner MDA Federal.
