IMPORTANT: PUBLISHING GUIDELINES AND COPYRIGHT TERMS AND CONDITIONS
[http://www.spaceimaging.com/newsroom/guidelines.htm]

IMPORTANT NOTE: Media wishing to publish photo quality prints of any IKONOS
images must NOT change the image scale as captured and presented in softcopy.
Image scale is important in displaying the true qualities of the imagery.
If the proper scale is not maintained integrity will be compromised and our
product quality misrepresented. In print terms, this equates to every 300
dpi of hardcopy displaying 80 pixels of image data. This will maintain the
softcopy scale in the hardcopy rendering. For newspaper print, every 150
dpi of hardcopy shall display 80 pixels of image data. The hardcopy scale
of newspaper is allowed to change because of the drop in print quality. In
addition, the imagery may be CROPPED to show a smaller area.

Image must be attributed to “spaceimaging.com” for each and every use.
