    DeLorme Adds Color Aerial Imagery for Use with its New Handheld GPS

    YARMOUTH, Maine, March 21, 2007-DeLorme, the innovation leader in mapping and GPS technologies, today announced the availability of recent color imagery for 26 U.S. states, with more on the way. The imagery can be viewed either on a PC screen or the new DeLorme Earthmate(r) GPS PN-20 receiver.

    Downloading the color imagery is easily accomplished via the NetLink tab found within DeLorme mapping software, including Topo USA(r) 6.0, Street Atlas USA(r) 2007, Street Atlas USA 2007 Plus DVD, and XMap 5.0.
    This color imagery release significantly broadens the amount of aerial data available from DeLorme. The above-mentioned mapping software packages already offer users the ability to download DeLorme Aerial Data Packets, comprised of recent color satellite imagery and black and white aerials, as well as U.S.G.S. 7.5-minute quads.

    The timing of the color imagery release dovetails with the recent introduction of the Earthmate GPS PN-20 handheld receiver, which comes with Topo USA 6.0 software included at no extra charge. Users can easily toggle back and forth between the new color imagery, Aerial Data Packet views, and the Topo USA 6.0 maps they've loaded on the device.
    What makes DeLorme aerial imagery unique is that users can actually use it in their planning and navigation. On the desktop PC, the imagery can be used to enhance the map detail with total accuracy ― for example, to pinpoint the precise location of a man-made feature, the exact line of a forest boundary, different types of land use (e.g., agricultural or residential) and much more.

    "This is aerial imagery you can actually use," said Caleb Mason, Marketing Director for DeLorme. "Unlike the imagery you find online, this can be put to use with the Earthmate GPS PN-20 and with DeLorme software on your desktop to improve both your travel planning and your GPS navigation."
    Depending on the location, the color imagery is at either one- or two-meter per pixel resolution. The download price is $1.00 per square kilometer, with a $9.95 minimum purchase.

    Currently, the color imagery is available for the following states: Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Additional states will be made available shortly.

    DeLorme is the longtime leader in innovative mapping and GPS solutions for both consumer and professional markets. The company's trailblazing Street Atlas USA(r) and Topo USA(r) consumer software have set the standards for GPS, routing, and travel-planning capabilities. DeLorme XMap(r) software is expanding the GIS market through its advanced capabilities, affordable pricing, and ease of use. A longtime GPS leader, DeLorme Earthmate(r) receivers pioneered the concept of GPS for laptop PCs and PDAs when first introduced in the early 1990s. Today, the innovation continues with the Earthmate GPS PN-20 handheld receiver, the Earthmate GPS BT-20 with dual Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and the DeLorme GPS2056 Receiver Module for OEM electronic systems. Located in Yarmouth, Maine, DeLorme is home to Eartha(tm), the world's largest rotating globe.
