IBM digitizes National Geographic

Cyberbiz Brief

IBM will convert 10,000 National Geographic magazine photos taken over the past century into digital form, part of a new e-commerce system for the nonprofit org that will make its fabled photography available for online sale to publishers, advertisers and others.

The society anticipates adding about 3,000 new images annually to the site, which will be located at www.ngsimages.com. It will be a while before everything is available, however; National Geographic’s image collection includes more than 10 million images.
