East View Cartographic Newsletter - Geospatial Edition
October 2009
Volume 1, Issue 8

Greetings from Minneapolis!  
In this month's newsletter we would like to highlight some of our vector products. These are off-the-shelf products, but we  specialize in customized products for your area of interest.
In addition to producing vector data from Russian mapping for such areas as Afghanistan and Israel, we can also create customized products from high resolution imagery. And when possible, we can enrich this data with population data and/or street-name data.
Afghanistan 1:50,000 Scale Raster Mosaic

afghan .3

EVC offers Soviet 1:50,000 scale topographic maps of Afghanistan as highly-compressed raster mosaics. The maps are converted from cropped GeoTiff files into groupings so each tile covers a much larger area. The procedure offers the same highly valuable maps in a GIS-ready, efficient, and cost-effective manner.
The mosaic is offered in ECW and JPEG2000 formats.  EVC is currently offering this product at $100 oer tile.
Tehran City Vector Dataset

Tehran is a city of increasing strategic importance, and a constant fixture in news headlines given the rapidly evolving role of Iran in world events.  EVC offers an all-new vector map of Tehran to give users a clear and comprehensive depiction of this world capital. 
All features have been extracted from Quickbird color 0.6m (2ft) color satellite imagery, collected in 2007-8.  Thus all features are up-to-date and accurately delineated.  English-language feature names have been extracted from a locally-produced 1:30,000 scale reference map. The dataset is available in ESRI Shapefile and ESRI Geodatabase formats.  
Israel Country Vector Dataset
EVC offers 1:50,000 scale vector topographic mapping covering all of Israel, as well as portions of surrounding countries.  The vector layers have been extracted from Soviet topographic maps at the same scale, published mainly during the 1980's.  All feature names and attributes are in English, and any text from the source maps has been Romanized. This is excellent foundational GIS-ready vector data for Israel, even without imagery updates.
It is richly detailed, cost-effective, and readily available. All significant content on the source maps has been captured and is included as a layer in the vector map, making the content similar to findings on a topographic map. The main thematic layers include transportation, hydrography, populated areas and urban features, elevation, utilities, and political boundaries.  Visit www.cartographic.com for coverage indexes, sample data, pricing, and other information.
The data is available in ESRI Shapefile format.  Other formats are available upon request.
