EARTH OBSERVATION
DG's Basemap expanded to include 250M square kilometers at 30cm

Basemap makes the consumption of DigitalGlobe imagery easy, via a simple subscription model where users pay only for what they use or have unlimited access to a given area of interest.

DigitalGlobe reports that its online Basemap Suite has reached a significant milestone, with the availability of more than 250 million square kilometers of the world's highest-resolution 30 cm commercial satellite imagery.

This includes over 500 population centers in the Basemap +Metro product now available at 30 cm resolution and 1,700 cities available at 50 cm or better resolution, a level of detail that is unrivaled in the industry. In total, the Basemap Suite now features 1.5 billion square kilometers of high-accuracy, high-resolution imagery - 10 times the land surface area of the Earth.

With the initial launch of the Basemap product line five years ago, DigitalGlobe created the industry standard for online, on-demand access to the world's highest-quality commercial satellite imagery. Today the DigitalGlobe Basemap Suite features a global imagery base layer with a powerful time-lapse image browsing tool and near-seamless satellite imagery mosaics.

Basemap makes the consumption of DigitalGlobe imagery easy, via a simple subscription model where users pay only for what they use or have unlimited access to a given area of interest. Competing offerings feature lower-resolution imagery and incomplete coverage of the most critical areas. With inferior imagery, detailed analysis or the addition of vector data is often inaccurate, if not impossible.

"We've seen strong customer demand for our Basemap Suite from government, commercial, and global development organizations that rely on up-to-date information and insight about the world's most dynamic cities to achieve their goals," said James Rogers, DigitalGlobe's Vice President of Product Marketing and Management.

"With our 30 cm content, customers and partners are unlocking new use cases in map-making, map-maintenance, feature detection, and population mapping, ultimately enabling decisions to be made with greater confidence."

"It's critical for our users to have instant access to relevant, fresh, and global high-resolution imagery to perform their missions," said John Marshall, Director of Business Development for Pacific Geomatics.

"The ability to access imagery online and download it for offline use in a matter of minutes has been a game changer. DigitalGlobe has established itself as the standard for satellite imagery, and with their Basemap Suite of products, our users have rapid access to the highest-quality imagery available. "

Van Allen probes spot electron rainfall in atmosphere
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Sep 30, 2016
Our planet is nestled in the center of two doughnut-shaped regions of powerful, dynamic radiation: the Van Allen belts, where high-energy particles are trapped by Earth's magnetic field. Depending on incoming radiation from the sun, they can gain energetic particles. On the other hand, the belts can lose energized particles too. We are familiar with rapid changes in weather, and the ... read more
