You can also access the best government supplied data from USGX, USDA and NASA.
Image enabling web applications
ImageBuilder lets you create extensive base maps and other image layers for integration and display in a variety of web applications, from portals, to digital mapping services to mobile devices such as GPS and personal navigation devices. With ImageBuilder you can select the development approach that best suits your development environment as we provided 3 different options for bringing the world’s high resolution imagery online. You can opt for a dynamic API – a complete URL based API predicated on HTTP protocol that offers simple yet powerful capabilities to dynamically embed imagery and maps into any Internet aware device or application. Alternatively, opt for a tile API to integrate high speed, tiled imagery into AJAX and Flash applications. Or use WMS, based upon the standards from the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).
ImageBuilder integrates seamlessly into your existing system architecture. You control the look and feel as well as the administration for accessing the world’s largest commercial library of online imagery and maps. Select only the interactive viewing features you want. You get a completely interactive, clickable image capable of rendering dynamic business database information simultaneously with every map view.

ImageBuilder already powers many of the world’s leading websites with high resolution imagery. ImageBuilder has enhanced the user experience and location sensitivity for real estate listing services, search and map portals and consumer navigation applications with leading companies around the world. It brings added dimension to the digital mapping world that vector maps alone cannot achieve.
