GeoEye has won a six-figure order to provide satellite imagery to a government agency in India for a freight railway corridor development project, the company said Tuesday.

RITES, an Indian government enterprise, made a six-figure purchase of the GeoEye-1 satellite services through the National Remote Sensing Centre, which acts as GeoEye’s master reseller for India.

RITES will use the 50-centimeter stereo to plan, design and align two transportation corridors within India.

“This agreement also marks an important milestone for GeoEye, as the railways ministry is the first Indian government agency to purchase GeoEye stereo imagery,” said Christopher Tully, senior vice president of sales.

The NRSC will oversee delivery of the imagery to RITES and the Indian Railways Ministry.

According to GeoEye, stereo imagery is intended to provide for three-dimensional viewing and feature recognition for extracting images and other engineering work.

The company is also working with an industry partner in Russia to create a topographical map with the goal of acquiring property information in the country.
