Google acquired Imaging America

Google announced yesterday that they have acquired Clayton, Missouri based ImageAmerica, a company that builds high resolution cameras for the collection of aerial imagery. Google Maps and Earth users are no strangers to ImageAmerica's work -- the company provided high resolution black and white imagery of New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

"We're excited about how ImageAmerica's technology will contribute to our mapping services down the road. Since we're in the research and development phase right now it may be some time before you see any of this imagery in Google Maps or Earth -- we'll keep you posted on this blog!" said Stephen Chau, Project Manager of Google Maps and Earth.

ImageAmerica pioneered the development of all-digital high resolution collection, processing and delivery of digital imagery products generally used for mapping applications.

After Panoramio, PeakStream, Zenter, Feedburner, GrandCentral and Postini, this is the seventh Google acquisition just this and last month.
