Google, GeoEye, Twitter. What a Combination!

On September 9th, Bob Lozano posted his kudos to GeoEye for a successful launch of GeoEye-1. (Hey Bob! Where’s that post on your “cloud failure” last week?)

According to their press release, GeoEye-1 will be able to collect images with a ground resolution of 0.41-meters or 16 inches in the panchromatic, or black-and-white mode, and collect multi spectral, or color imagery, at 1.65-meter resolution. (Under current government rules, the company can only offer the public half-meter images.)

I would like to add my congratulations as well, but the thing that immediately comes to my mind is the GeoEye deal to provide “the highest quality satellite imagery available” to Google and the (you know it too) coming Android-powered mash-up between those images, GPS location services and Google-Earth.

All you need now is some real-time queuing from a Twitter-powered ad-hoc information network and you really got something going.

Isn’t the cloud a wonderful thing !!
