Microsoft is reporting today that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has licensed its Virtual Earth platform, as part of an effort to improve data sharing at the agency and partners. Financial details of the license were not disclosed. Microsoft said that Virtual Earth will be integrated into web-based mapping applications, environmental monitoring systems, and other line-of-business applications. Microsoft said its software will be used to improve data sharing, analysis and insight for partner agencies, citizens and nongovernmental organizations. The Virtual Earth software replaces a number of disparate systems currently in use at the EPA.
