TerraGo Awarded Patent for Automating Alignment of Vector Datasets and Imagery

Atlanta, Feb. 14, 2013—TerraGo, the leading provider of geospatial intelligence software, has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,340,360 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) entitled “System and Method for Fusing Vector Data with Imagery.” The patent recognizes TerraGo’s unique approach for the automatic and accurate alignment of vector datasets and imagery.

Combining structured vector information with aerial and satellite imagery creates actionable intelligence for superior decision-making. The manual alignment of streets and other vector data is difficult and time-consuming; automating the process alleviates the need for trained map integration specialists and enables analysts to spend more time on quality analysis for the mission at hand.

“Increasingly, business, security, and other decisions are driven by location-based intelligence,” said TerraGo President and CEO Rick Cobb. “This patented technology will enable our customers and partners to automate and enhance the production of next-generation geospatial intelligence products under programs like Global Geospatial Intelligence (GGI) and GEOINT Data Services (GDS).”

“The proliferation of location-based data creates an opportunity for adding more valuable context to maps and imagery; at the same time, this task can be challenging,” said George Demmy, TerraGo Chief Technology Officer. “Our newly patented technology overcomes a significant portion of that challenge by automating the accurate conflation of vector data and imagery and expediting the process of creating actionable intelligence.”

This new technology is currently available as part of solutions offered through the TerraGo Professional Services group. For more information, email professionalservices@terragotech.com.
