Raleigh, NC (PressExposure) June 24, 2009 -- TerraServer, the leader in online satellite and aerial imagery, licensed imagery for the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen directed by Michael Bay which premiers June 24, 2009. The satellite imagery, provided by DigitalGlobe, was licensed by Dreamworks, LLC for use in the major motion picture starring Shia LaBeouf and produced by Steven Spielberg.
TerraServer has worked on many projects including TV shows, commercials, major motion pictures, books, magazines, websites and many others. TerraServer provides access to several different satellite and aerial imagery providers including DigitalGlobe and LandVoyage, making TerraServer a one-stop shop for imagery and licensing. Streamlined communications with multiple imagery providers allows projects and licensing to be completed on stringent deadlines.
"TerraServer has been successfully licensing imagery and completing custom projects for years," said Brian Randy Funk, Vice President and COO of TerraServer. "This experience with a wide range of projects and techniques has put us in a unique position to fulfill the increasing demand for satellite imagery for film and television."
TerraServer's other entertainment credits include Universal Studio's Fast & Furious and Burn After Reading, and a season of The Discovery Channel's Mega Builders. Imagery licensed through TerraServer has also been published in National Geographic Magazine and several Houghton Mifflin Harcourt textbooks. For Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, DigitalGlobe satellite imagery of various locations including the Eiffel Tower was selected and enhanced. Multiple image tiles were mosaiced to create large, seamless images for use in the film. This technique is ideal for very large prints and posters, as well as film and television projects.
TerraServer is used by consumers and professionals in real estate, engineering, GIS, construction, government, and many others for downloading and printing. The interactive website allows customers to easily search and view imagery from multiple sources and order image downloads and prints.
