Google Acquires ImageAmerica
Google acquired ImageAmerica
, a company, as they say, building “high resolution cameras for the collection of aerial imagery.” Google hint that they expect this data to be rolled out in Google Earth/ Maps in the future. Already, ImageAmerica provided hi-res New Orleans imagery to Google following Hurricane Katrina. Image-America.com
now shows the usual semi-blank “acquired” page, but Archive.org stored an older version
I’ve mirrored here.
After Panoramio, PeakStream, Zenter, Feedburner, GrandCentral and Postini, this is the seventh Google acquisition just this and last month. I suppose by now, a typical Google lobby small talk starts with, “So, when were you acquired?”
