Google Puts Earth Imagery Up for Sale

Posted on 7.16.2014

Google is offering access to its Google Earth imagery with the launch of a new service called Google Maps for Business.

The service enables businesses to purchase and use Google Earth imagery, providing access to high-resolution aerial imagery covering the continental U.S. According to the Google Enterprise blog, this will help customers like government agencies get the imagery they need without putting the resources into collecting their own aerial photography.

“Using Google Maps Engine, organizations can quickly obtain Google Earth imagery as soon as it’s available and share it with colleagues or customers,” states Google in a blog post. “By relying on Google’s cloud, they can bypass traditional delivery systems, such as an FTP or disc, while also avoiding the costs of maintaining their own data centers.”
