DeLorme Releases Color Digital Aerial Imagery Of Florida For In-The-Field Use With Xmap

February 16, 2006 -- YARMOUTH, ME-DeLorme, a leading provider of affordable mapping, GIS, and GPS solutions today announced the release of one-meter resolution aerial imagery for the state of Florida.

Processed into DeLorme's efficient XMap format, this imagery is available in a series of twelve seamless mosaics, each of which provides regional coverage on a single DVD or statewide coverage on a USB hard drive. Now it's possible to bring high-quality aerial imagery into the field without the need to download and manage dozens of individual files or to be connected to the Internet.

"The processing of this imagery into XMap format was undertaken in response to numerous requests from XMap users in Florida," said Geoffrey Ives, DeLorme's Director of Professional Sales. "Because a significant percentage of our customers work in a mobile office setting, with no access to online mapping and imagery sites, it was important for us to offer them a readily available mobile alternative. This imagery is a perfect compliment to the XMap GIS toolset in use by field technicians across the USA."

Derived from Florida's DOQQ data files, this imagery was captured in 2004 and 2005 and represents the most up-to-date and complete aerial imagery that is currently available for the entire state.

In conjunction with XMap, this dataset is ideally suited for utility workers, insurance adjusters, realtors, first responders, law enforcement officers, and anyone who appreciates the value of high-quality aerial imagery and an easy-to use yet powerful mapping application while in the field. DeLorme plans to release additional sets of XMap formatted state imagery over the next year.
