deCarta Partners With GlobeXplorer for Aerial & Satellite Imagery Capability

October 5, 2006

Stewart Information Services Corp.

deCarta (formerly Telcontar), a leading supplier of software platforms and services for the Location-Based Services (LBS) industry and GlobeXplorer, provider of the world's largest commercial library of aerial photos, satellite imagery and geographic maps, today announced a strategic partnership enabling deCarta customers to leverage sophisticated high-resolution aerial and satellite imagery in their LBS applications.

The partnership between the two companies addresses the next-generation of LBS application feature enrichment for a wide range of markets including real estate, travel, Internet, government and business intelligence.

Through the partnership, deCarta customers will be able to easily create location-based applications that overlay spatial and complementary customer- generated data onto GlobeXplorer imagery. Applications can be developed through deCarta's no-cost Developer Zone, and commercially deployed through either deCarta's Hosted Web Services, a state-of-the-art, professionally- managed hosting environment or by licensing and deploying deCarta's market- proven Drill Down Server™ geospatial software platform. deCarta and GlobeXplorer have collaborated on a seamless interface between deCarta's Web services API and GlobeXplorer's Image Server within the deCarta AJAX framework. This enables easy generation of "hybrid" maps such as the overlay of road network data on top of satellite imagery.

"Maps and imagery are now the defacto visual reference point for spatially-oriented search and information," said J. Kim Fennell, president and CEO of deCarta. "The combination of GlobeXplorer imagery and deCarta technology opens new horizons for our customers to significantly expand the scope of their applications in ways that provide a high degree of real-world visual context and value to their end-users."

"The convergence of LBS and geographic imagery is upon us," said Robert Shanks, president and CEO of GlobeXplorer. "We look forward to our partnership with deCarta, and to the many new applications taking full advantage of our combined technologies that will come to the market delivering new levels of user utility and market differentiation. With GlobeXplorer, deCarta developers will be able to provide their users unmatched image resolution, coverage, and currency."
