On April 8th Geoserve signed an agreement with UrtheCast for thedistribution of UrtheCast products in the Benelux region. UrtheCast, headquartered in Canada and listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, installed two earth sensing cameras on the International Space Station. A High Resolution Camera (HRC) that will produce 1-meter class, full color videos, and a Medium Resolution Camera (MRC) that will produce 6-meter class, 50-km wide swaths of imagery.
The full color videos will allow people to monitor areas and events worldwide. Videos can be collected of areas between +53 and -53 degrees latitude. It is expected that UrtheCast’ videos will be of great use for security, media and humanitarian relief operations.
