MDA Offers New Geographic Information

Richmond, B.C. - MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSX: MDA), a provider of essential information solutions, announced today that the Company has already received over $1 million in orders for its NaturalVue 2000 land information product since it became available in late 2003.

GeoCover NaturalVue 2000, based on data from Landsat, is the only global natural colour land information data set available at a 15 metre resolution. NaturalVue provides haze-corrected worldwide coverage of the Earth's landmass that is ideal for geographic information backgrounds, 3D simulations, television broadcasts or Internet use. This affordable, unique information is available in single tiles, country groupings, continents and global packages.

Among MDA's customers, ESRI, the world's leading Geographic Information System software provider, has purchased a 150 meter resolution version of the natural-color data set for inclusion as a global imagebase in its ArcGIS Version 9 product release.
