RapidEye logo MapMart of Greenwood Village, Colorado, has signed on as a data distributor for RapidEye in the United States. John Ahlrichs, Vice President of RapidEye, commented “RapidEye looks forward to working with MapMart, its first distributor for the commercial and civil government markets in the United States. MapMart's market leading tools for data discovery and their focus on data sales perfectly complement our focus on repetitive services based on wide area, multi-coverage collections of satellite imagery. We really look forward to working with the MapMart team in growing the market for RapidEye imagery in the United States.” Mick Barber, Chief Operating Officer at MapMart, said “We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with RapidEye and to supplying our customers in the U.S. with RapidEye's high quality satellite imagery.

Through this partnership we expect to strengthen our position on the e-commerce and data business enormously, so that both companies can benefit from it.”
