GeoEye Inc. has partnered with Mitsubishi Corp. subsidiary Japan Space Imaging Corp. to provide a major Japanese ministry with access to comprehensive high-resolution satellite imagery of all of Japan through GeoEye's EyeQâ„¢ platform, according to a company statement.

“This agreement with JSI to serve a Japanese ministry marks an important milestone for GeoEye,“ said Christopher Tully, GeoEye's senior vice president of sales.

The agreement extends a deal established earlier this year.

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

“The Japanese government is the first major international government to benefit from EyeQ managed services,“ Tully added. “This will allow the ministry's analysts to access geospatial data previously accessible only to highly advanced users.“

JSI will manage the flow of online products to ensure that ministry analysts have access to imagery on-demand and are able to view the data through open geospatial consortium services as part of their workflow process.

EyeQ will allow non-specialist analysts to access GeoEye's accurate, high-resolution content in near real-time.
