Richmond - May 1, 2000 - For organizations and individuals involved in the business of land management, environmental monitoring, earth observation or education, MacDonald Dettwiler's latest version of the Canadian Earth Observation Network (CEONet) is a high priority resource tool.
CEONet uses advanced web architecture to integrate hundreds of remote information databases to deliver an unprecedented range of land and environmental information to Canadians and international users through the web.
Operated by the Canadian Centre for Remote Sensing, CEONet is a web based portal for Canadian and international databases of satellite images, geomatics and other earth observation data collected from federal archives, academic sources and private industry.
This updated version of CEONet provides suppliers and consultants with an unlimited world-wide forum to advertise and distribute earth observation and land information products and services, and continues to enable users to browse through data banks, select, download and view commercial satellite imagery.
MacDonald Dettwiler President & CEO, Dan Friedmann, says, "CEONet is an electronic marketplace for geospatial goods and services and is an excellent example of the kind of systems MacDonald Dettwiler is developing."
To date over 7 million people have accessed information via CEONet. This includes access to more than 1.2 million images from Canada's RADARSAT-1, the U.S Landsat, and France's SPOT satellites.
CEONet is a central part of Canada's national spatial data infrastructure initiative called the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI).
This infrastructure facilitates expanding access to geospatial information, the development of common international geospatial standards and a policy environment that encourages the broadest possible use of geospatial information
