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. now shows the usual semi-blank “acquired” page, but 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?”
