Newly formed GeoEye, the product of Orbimage’s acquisition of Space Imaging, will look to expand its production facilities beyond those already in the Dulles area, Thornton, Colorado and St. Louis. In an interview today, CEO Matt O’Connell commented that the company is out of space at those facilities and will add people in Thornton to expand the value-added image processing side of their business. O’Connell thinks there will be increased demand for advanced imagery products. He also said that the OrbView-5 satellite that has about 15-inch pixel resolution will undergo a name change to GeoEye 1, which will launch during the first quarter of 2007. Directions Magazine will publish a more extensive interview with O’Connell in a future issue.

A post on the MapServer Foundation discussion list from Paul Ramsey and Gary Lang detail a face to face (and virtual) meeting to address the next steps. The meeting is slated for the Chicago, Westin O’Hare, on February 4, 2006.
The goals include agreement in principle on:
a mission statement or short charter.
a governance model for the foundation.
a founding Board of Directors.
an acceptable short list of foundation names.
Basically, the group is looking for enough agreement to get things going. There are still spots for those who want to attend and everyone is welcome to attend virtually.
