Founded in 1997, TerraServer pioneered the delivery of satellite and aerial imagery online. Based in Raleigh North Carolina, the company forged a partnership with SOVINFORMSPUTNIK, a Russian company equipped with a cache of 2 meter, panchromatic satellite imagery (SPIN-2), to yield a series of high-resolution satellite views of popular landmarks such as Area 51, Groom Lake, Nellis Air Force Base and the Nevada Proving Grounds.
Making history on April 17, 2000, TerraServer became the first company to release these images to the general public online, generating a wave of publicity and enough Internet traffic to down a major Internet provider for over 12 hours.
In partnership with the industry's leading imagery providers such as DigitalGlobe, TerraServer has dramatically expanded its offerings as it continues to provide the most extensive collection of high quality satellite and aerial images found anywhere.
