Earth-i Announces a Major Contract Award from the Government of Queensland, Australia

Earth-i, the innovative British distributor of Earth Observation and information services, announced today that it has been awarded the contract to supply the government of the state of Queensland, Australia with very high resolution optical imagery of the entire state.

The contract covers the supply of imagery from the DMC3 / TripleSat Constellation for each of the years 2016 and 2017 and will ensure that Queensland’s Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM) has a detailed base map of the entire state, updated each year.

All Queensland Government Departments, local agencies and Natural Resource Management Groups will benefit from having access to up-to-date imagery of the State to support their decision making, information analysis, environmental management and state development activities.

Steve Jacoby, Executive Director of Land and Spatial Information, DNRM, said: “We are delighted to have awarded the contract to Earth-i. They demonstrated a clear understanding of our needs in Queensland, the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation provides us and other Queensland government departments with both the wide area capability and the very high resolution imagery required to meet the needs of the user community. We were impressed with the professionalism of the Earth-i bid and the quality of data we will be able to work with to support a wide range of applications.

Paul Majmader, Commercial Director of Earth-i, commenting on the contract award, said “we are delighted that the State of Queensland has selected Earth-i, and are confident we will deliver high quality services to the State and excellent value for money to Queensland tax payers. The scale of the area to be collected lends itself very well to the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation which excels in rapid, wide area collection of very high resolution data. We worked hard with our partners 21AT to offer the best bid, and are confident that the data will offer significant benefits to a wide base of users in Australia.”
