TerraServer® has selected MyTopo.com as the exclusive print provider of TerraServer® aerial photos, satellite images and topographic maps. Since 1997, TerraServer has offered maps and imagery online through a variety of different image and print providers. Under the new agreement, MyTopo.com will process, print and ship all TerraServer® print and poster orders.
"We chose MyTopo to be our exclusive print partner because of their long-standing commitment to quality and customer service," said Brian Randy Funk, COO of TerraServer®. "MyTopo has an amazing printing capability and worked closely with us to develop new products and technologies."
TerraServer® will use the automated MyTopo.com API (http://www.mytopo.com/oem) to send customer orders to print on demand. Available print products range in size from 5 x 7 inches up to 42 x 60 inches and come in a variety of paper finishes including glossy, matte, waterproof, laminated and canvas. Additionally, the imagery and maps can be printed with a collar to include the map scale, navigation grid and additional customized text.
"Our extensive knowledge of maps and imagery coupled with our flexible printing options will assure customers the ability to order quality map and image prints and have them delivered to their mailbox in a matter of days," said Kevin Toohill, Founder and CEO of MyTopo.com. "Our partnership will allow TerraServer to offer a complete suite of mapping products to its customers, from digital imagery to high-quality prints."
As part of the agreement, MyTopo.com worked with TerraServer® to develop new products and technology. A shipping calculator API has been developed to specify the exact costs of different shipping options, including next day shipping; and, a tracking system will automatically alert TerraServer® when an order has shipped to its customer. These new technologies will fully automate the ordering process and allow for significant cost savings.
Since 1997, TerraServer® has positioned itself as the leading imagery portal. The company, based in Raleigh, NC, aims to be the one-stop site for aerial and satellite imagery.
