SAN DIEGO, Oct. 1, 2014”Earthstar Geographics LLC (San Diego, CA, USA) today announced the release of the latest round of upgrades to its TerraColor 15-meter global satellite imagery product.  The upgrades include greatly improved imagery for many remote island areas, such as Australia's Great Barrier Reef, the Maldives, the Red Sea and the entire South Pacific. The upgrades also include some of the only 15-meter ice-free mosaics ever produced for the remote Arctic island areas of Svalbard, Franz Josef Land and Severnaya Zemlya.  

Our new upgrades greatly improve satellite image mapping of many remote parts of the world for which good imagery has been very difficult to find, said Eric Augenstein of Earthstar Geographics.  We composite many individual images to produce nearly cloud-free mosaics that allow unprecedented views of these areas for a wide variety of applications.
