HERNDON, Va., Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Geospatial imagery from GeoEye Inc. of Virginia is to be disseminated online through the global portal of Fugro.

Fugro is a service provider for the collection and interpretation of data relating to the Earth's surface and subsurface.

"GeoEye is pleased that Fugro has chosen to add EyeQ services to its range of offerings via the Fugro World global customer portal," said Paolo Colombi, GeoEye's vice president for International Sales.

"In addition to serving Fugro World's existing customers, this agreement will also allow GeoEye to welcome new EyeQ and imagery end-users in new markets and regions."

Fugro said it chose the GeoEye's EyeQ platform for dissemination because of its ability to provide premium high-resolution satellite imagery content from an extensive global catalogue, as well as new collections using the GeoEye-1/IKONOS constellation.

"We pride ourselves on offering our global customers access to the satellite imagery they need in order to explore, develop, produce and transport the world's natural resources," said Fugro World Manager Louise Gibbons. "We are pleased to partner with GeoEye and to use EyeQ as part of our suite of online delivery capabilities."
