Digital images available

A PERTH-based company has launched what could be the world’s first image web server.

Earth Resource Mapping’s image web server will allow digital image suppliers to sell imagery cheaply over the Internet.

It will also let people use Internet-based imagery in standard applications such as computer aided design software.

ERM CEO and founder Stuart Nixon said the server would revolutionise the way people dealt with imagery.

“For the first time people can roam and zoom over terabyte-sized images via the Internet from within applications such as Internet Explorer, AutoCAD Map, ArcView, Word and MapInfo,” Mr Nixon said.

“Image size problems in Internet distribution are extinct.”

The server can serve one terabyte of imagery, compressed at 20:1, to an entire organisation while running off a low cost, PC-based web server with fifty gigabytes of disk space.
