Terra Server

Terra Server

The Client

TerraServer is a company specializing in aerial and satellite imagery which was originally launched in 1997. It is owned and operated by TerraServer.com, Inc. in Raleigh, North Carolina. The company was previously named Aerial Images until May 2002 when the assets of Aerial Images were sold and the company renamed itself TerraServer.com, Inc.

The Challenge

Aerial Images was a part of the original project that involved Microsoft and Compaq as a demonstration of the real-world scalability of SQL Server and Microsoft’s Windows NT Server. We have to re write the application from Classic ASP  to a more up to date framework .NET.

The Proposal

Train and certify our resources to give complete support and re write the application. We proposed a full team with Quality Assurance, Project Man age net, Tech Leads and Developers; plus our proven expertise.

The Solution in Action

Up to date technology, a great platform where you can access to geo-referenced world file, which allows the image to be imported into GIS and CAD software. Downloads are available in the following formats: JPEG, TIF, GIF, BMP, PDF, PSD, and PNG.

The TerraServer viewer allows users to select imagery from different dates and of different resolutions. While most of the TerraServer imagery is focused on high resolution, color, satellite and aerial imagery, TerraServer.com also offers Color Infrared Imagery, Panchromatic Imagery, Low Resolution Satellite Imagery, and topographic maps. Subscribers to TerraServer.com gain access to a drawing and measuring tool that can measure surface distance and area on the images.
