Space Imaging Middle East (SIME) recently participated in the 3rd annual Map Middle East exhibition and conference, which took place in the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre in April, 2007.

Co-exhibiting with its partners at the UAESpaceReconnaissanceCenter, SIME made a strong presence at the show and its interactive product displays generated great interest from attendees. 

SIME displayed its latest 1-meter imagery collections from within it Communications Cone, sourced from the IKONOS satellite, along with its latest GIS offering, GeoVirtual.

Designed by a SIME technology partner, GEO-Virtual is a cutting-edge software application that imports different types of satellite imagery and digital elevation models to create a virtual 3D scenario over a given area. This enables users to fly over an area of interest in 3D and 4D modes. 

SIME representatives also contributed to the GeoEye stand during the exhibition. GeoEye is the world’s largest commercial remote sensing and satellite imagery company. GeoEye President and CEO Matthew O’Connell attended the event and participated in its Geospatial Leadership Forum, discussing the management of high resolution imagery and the progressive advancement of the geospatial industry.
