Upcoming GeoEye-1 Satellite Launch

The GeoEye-1 satellite launch on September 4th has been getting a lot of media attention lately. Instead of regurgitating the specs, I'll focus on a few other details.

First of all, check out the Launch Site here. It has a count-down and informs us that there will be a live video stream of the launch - should be interesting to watch.

There were several reports today about a deal between GeoEye and Google, whereby Google will be the exclusive online mapping site with access to the imagery.

Note that LPS will support both the rigorous and RPC models for GeoEye-1 in both LPS 9.2 (the current version) as well as LPS 9.3 (coming soon, stay tuned).
